Blackpool manager Ian Holloway has said that they can avoid relegation this season, despite their poor form, according to the Free Bets website.

Holloway’s men have an impressive record against the sides they face in their battle to remain in the English Premier League, including Saturday’s visitors Wigan, who they beat 4-0 on the opening day.

Blackpool boss Ian Holloway has said that he is frustated by Blackpool's display against Chelsea. The Tangerines went down 4-0 to the Blues with each goal coming inside the opening period before the visitors re-shaped after the interval.

Salomon Kalou opened the scoring after less than two minutes before a Florent Malouda double either side of Didier Drogba's strike put Chelsea in cruise control. Despite a drastic improvement after the break, Holloway believes the home side eased up their urgency and allowed Blackpool to see more of the ball.

Southern told the club's website: "The bulk of the players were here last season but the manager has put us in a system, a structure that has allowed us to play with freedom and a lot of attacking zip.
