Holloway will stick with core of Blackpool squad if promoted

Blackpool boss Ian Holloway will not make wholesale changes to his squad if they win promotion to the Premier League. The Seasiders have not played in the top flight since 1971 but they booked their place in the Coca-Cola Championship play-off final against Cardiff with a 6-4 aggregate victory over Nottingham Forest.

And Holloway said: "If we do get to the Premier League, I will give these players a shot at it. I won't be worried about changing all my players around.

"I'm proud of my players. Confidence is believing in yourself and the people around you.

"We are still learning but we have confidence in buckets."
