The raw facts of the matter are that Blackpool have lost 10 games at home this season - no other team in the Championship has lost more.
Only Southampton have won fewer home matches than Blackpool's five.
Home has not been where the heart is for Blackpool this season.
But then how do you explain Bloomfield Road draws with Wolves, Reading and Cardiff and victory over Birmingham? So it's not been all doom and gloom at the seaside this season.
You could probably sum up our home form in two back-to-back Bloomfield games in January. A thoroughly deserved 2-0 win over second placed Birmingham was followed three days later by a 3-0 spanking at the hands of mid table QPR. From the sublime to the ridiculous.
Although the atmosphere at Bloomers has been generally pretty good, falling attendances obviously haven't helped. Just one sell out so far against Preston, though we should have a full house against Nottingham Forest on Saturday. But only 6,600 turned up against Charlton and QPR.
Ian Evatt and Keith Southern have talked this week about how important it is to sign off at Bloomers for the season with a win this Saturday lunchtime. How right they are, though it won't be easy against an improving Forest side who still need points to stay up.
But with a South stand hopefully ready for action early next season we need to get it right on the pitch to bring the fans back. It's imperative we get Bloomfield Road back to being the intimidating fortress it was last season as soon as possible. And that starts on Saturday.
