Tranmere Rvs. face a trip to Blackpool at Bloomfield Road on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Rovers 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 less than a year ago, in December 2003, the Seasiders carving out a narrow 2 - 1 victory in a League Division Two match.
