Blackpool play host to Tottenham Hotspur at Bloomfield Road on Tuesday evening, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 11 of the 26 previous games, with the Seasiders winning just 6.
The last time the two teams met at Blackpool was amazingly over twenty years ago, in January 1991, with Tottenham H. inflicting a narrow 0-1 defeat upon the Seasiders in a F.A. Cup match.

Recent respective form guides
Blackpool's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While Seasiders have scored 8, a worringly large 12 have been leaked at the other end.
Tottenham H.'s away form is none too clever either, coming away with three points on 3 occasions, but drawing 1 and losing 2. The Spurs's have scored 6 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 8.
Blackpool are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 29 points from 26 matches. Tottenham H.'s total of 47 points from their 26 games sees them sitting in the playoff places in Barclays Premier League.
