With a Boxing day schedule out of the ordinary to many with various games across the country being called off, we still have a Blackpool game to look forward to.
The Seasiders will travel to Huddersfield looking for back-to-back victories as they look to give the traveling support something to cheer.
Boxing day always has a special place for fans up and down the country in the football calendar and the Tangerines are no exception to that rule.
Here are some of the best Boxing day memories of recent times:
Matt Phillip’s hat-trick at Barnsley – 2011/12
If you asked any fan what their favourite Blackpool Boxing day memory is, the vast majority would point to this trip to Oakwell as the standout.
Thousands of Seasiders packed out the Barnsley away end as they saw their side go within a point of the Championship playoff places.
They were at their free-flowing best and Matt Phillips was at the forefront of that with his hat-trick sending the traveling support barmy in one of the finest away atmospheres the Tangerine supports have produced.
Last minute against Huddersfield – 2012/13
Nothing can quite beat a last minute equaliser, no matter the circumstance.
That slight moment of silence as the ball travels towards the net followed by pandemonium in the stands, random people who haven’t met before hurling themselves on top of each other – it is British football’s greatest show.
And Nathan Delfouneso provided exactly that when his 89th minute effort picked up what was arguably an undeserved point after a wasteful Seasiders performance – but that made it all the better.
Ormerod at it again – 2009/10
Blackpool imperious march towards Premier League promotion all came together towards the end of that season, but earlier in the campaign they were setting the foundations.
A trip to Pride Park, a stadium that many Seasiders would rather forget after their recent exploits there, actually was a fruitful endeavour as a Jake Buxton own goal followed by a Brett Ormerod second sealed victory.
That result kept Blackpool within touching distance of the playoff places, two points behind Swansea at the time, and we all know how that ended.
The dreaded undersoil heating postponement – 2010/11
If there’s one legacy from the Oyston ownership it is their eventual decision to finally install undersoil heating at Bloomfield Road.
When Liverpool were supposed to come to town on Boxing day, a frozen pitch quickly halted their plans with pressure growing on the club to act.
It was “not a financial consideration,” to do anything about it according to then Chairman Karl Oyston.
But any excuse to mention the fact that Blackpool later went on to win the rescheduled fixture 2-1 at a capacity Bloomfield Road in Kenny Dalgish’s first game in his return as Liverpool boss is welcomed.
