Ian Holloway believes his Blackpool side have "nothing to lose" after they secured a Coca-Cola Championship play-off place despite being held to a draw by Bristol City at Bloomfield Road.
The Seasiders - last promoted to the top flight in 1970 - went into their final game knowing three points would guarantee a top-six finish.
But in the end a draw, coming after Brett Ormerod cancelled out Nicky Maynard's stunning first-half opener, proved more than enough after Swansea were held to a goalless draw by Doncaster at the Liberty Stadium.
"We've limped over the line in the end but you could see what it meant to everybody," said Holloway.
"I'm just relieved that we've matched what Swansea did and I'm very, very proud.
"It looked like we were washed up but we've got a chance now.
"I've just said that someone's got to win it, why can't it be Blackpool? There wouldn't be a better story anywhere.
"Whether we are good enough or not we'll have to wait and see, but we're in there.
"If I was anyone else, I wouldn't want to be playing us. That's not to say that we're better than everyone else but we've got nothing to lose."
