Blackpool prepare to entertain Watford at Bloomfield Road on Saturday afternoon, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 3 of the 8 previous games, with the Seasiders winning just 1.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Bloomfield Road was less than a year ago, in February 2009, as the visitors ran out cosy 0-2 winners in a Championship match.
