History of the Blackpool v Charlton Athletic fixture

Charlton Ath. face a trip to Blackpool at Bloomfield Road on Saturday afternoon, and have come away with little in previous meetings, having been beaten a depressing 17 out of 26 times.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in February 2008, when they eased past their opponents in a high-scoring 5 - 3 thriller, in a Championship match.

Recent respective form guides

Blackpool's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Seasiders have scored 7, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.

The away form of Charlton Ath. is pretty dire, managing a paltry 2 draws from the last six matches. While the Addicks have hit 6 goals, 11 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Blackpool find themselves struggling down in 18th position in the league having picked up 24 points from their 20 matches. Charlton Ath. are stuck down in the relegation zone of Coca-Cola Championship with a return of just 17 points from their 20 games thus far.
