Blackpool midfielder Gary Taylor-Fletcher is hoping history will repeat itself when the Tangerine Army travel to Old Trafford in their quest for Barclays Premier League survival.

Ian Holloway's side play Manchester United in their final game of the season on Sunday, exactly twelve months after their play-off final victory over Cardiff at Wembley last year.

The Seasiders face the daunting prospect of trying to take a positive result from the league champions, in their own back yard, as they bid to stave off the threat of relegation.

And Taylor-Fletcher believes there is every chance of another fairytale ending to their campaign.

"At the weekend, it will be exactly 12 months since Wembley and let's hope we can have the same outcome," he said.


 

"We're capable of going to United and getting something - and we'll give our all."

Blackpool's endeavours in the top-flight this season has been nothing short of admirable, with many pundits having written off the Lancashire club's chances of avoiding the drop before a ball had even been kicked.

The fact that on the final day of the season, the Tangerines are still in with a shout of retaining their status among football's elite, is a credit to themselves.

Holloway has instilled a never-say-die attitude into his squad of players, whilst also playing open, free-flowing, attack-minded football, allowing his team to express themselves in the right way.

"To be on 39 points with our squad after what people were saying about us is unbelievable," Taylor-Fletcher continued.

"If we can produce the same attacking threat, we will have half a chance."
