History Books Set To Wait For Brett

When Brett signed for Blackpool many moons ago for around £50,000 he wouldn't have thought how much of an influence he would be to propel Blackpool up the leagues to the Prem.

He was probably more focused on keeping the club from relegation but after breaking his leg in 2 places he could stop that happening as Blackpool were relegated to the third division which Brett described as the 'lowest point in his career'. Despite this he managed to score 46 goals in his years in Division 2 and 3 before moving on to pastures new with Southampton

Fast forward 12 years and even though he played for arch rival Preston he was welcomed back to Bloomfield Road and scored his 100th league goal against Norwich a couple of weeks after.

He was pivotal in Ollie's plans last season and showed he was still a legend amongst Blackpool fans after scoring the winning goal in the 2010 Playoff final against Cardiff City to take Blackpool to the Premier League.

He became the first Blackpool player to represent Blackpool in all four divisions when he walked out against Wigan, but is one goal away from being the first Blackpool player to score in all four divisions, even though he could have had that against Wigan.

Speaking of this fate Brett said, 'Of course it would be nice if it happened. I want to score as many goals as I can,' said the 33-year-old.

'But I don't want it to become a monkey on my back and that's why I'm trying not to think about it too much.'

'Right now I'd take a win on Saturday rather than me scoring a goal.'

You could say that the Premier League doesn't want Brett to score his one goal after having 3 goals disallowed in a week.

But against Newcastle the deed could be done after Brett scored twice against them over both fixtures last season.

Although now Lee Mason is refereeing the match anything could happen.
