Bumper pay day if Blackpool players win promotion

Blackpool boss Ian Holloway says club president Valery Belokon has promised his players an incredible cash incentive to win promotion. Holloway told the Blackpool Gazette: "These boys will be unbelievably rewarded if we do get promoted, much better than other teams.

"Mr Belokon has given them a prize at the end of it, which I think is fantastic, and that's our target.

"He has given them a cashpot to share out if we get promoted - it's pro-rata, based on how many games each player has played.

"I can't tell you how much it is but it is so generous it is frightening and I keep reminding them of it. At the end of the day, if you do well you need a reward and they'll certainly get one."
