'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Holloway: We Were Dead And Buried

Ian Holloway has spoken about his team's sparkling end of season form, admitting that he thought Blackpool were 'dead and buried' in the playoff race a few weeks ago.

Six victories out of the last seven have hoisted the Seasiders into the top six with just one game remaining.

They need to match Swansea's result on Sunday to guarantee a playoff spot.

Holloway, who couldn't have wished for a better debut season at Bloomfield Road, said: 'I am just delighted for the lads.

'To win six out of seven games is terrific because and it looked like we were dead and buried not so long ago. It still might be if we lose on Sunday.

'But I am bursting with pride about the journey we have been on.

'I wanted it to go down to the final day. It has and it is great to hear the optimism among our fans.

'Now we have got 90 minutes to try to score some goals again, and if we do we'll be in dreamland.'
