Holloway content for Blackpool to quietly achieve promotion

Blackpool boss Ian Holloway is happy for the Seasiders to be seen as underdogs in the race for promotion to the Premier League. They guaranteed a play-off spot by beating Burnley 4-0 on Saturday.

"Maybe people don't fancy us, but who cares. It's going to be difficult for anybody to face us," he told BBC Radio Lancashire..

"What the boys managed to do then was win the lottery. Can we do it again? At least we've got a ticket.

"If they beat us, well done. If not, we might have a wonderful time again.

"It was funny because no one's mentioned us. They mentioned all the other games but they didn't mention us against Leeds in the one paper I read.

"They mentioned Middlesbrough, they mentioned Birmingham almost cementing their place, they mentioned Cardiff almost cementing their place.

"I was fuming, but my wife said 'don't worry, just sneak under the radar and keep enjoying it' and that's what it's all about."
