Blackpool face a trip to Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on Tuesday evening, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Seasiders will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.
The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in March 2009, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2 - 2 draw in a Championship match.
