The mighty Seasiders vs PKE, the history books say…

We look ahead to the crucial Lancashire derby on Monday night with the teams’ record against eachother in the second flight of English football.

The Championship
Games: 38
Blackpool wins: 17
Preston wins: 16
Draws: 5


Preston have only won once at Bloomfield Road in this division since 1933.

Remarkably, ‘Pool didn’t beat their close rivals at home until 1925.

The highest scoring game came in 1926 at Deepdale – a 6-4 win for the home team.

However, Blackpool got their own back four years later when they thrashed PKE 5-1!

Incidentally, ‘Pool – as you all know – beat PKE 7-0 away from home in the old First Division in 1948.

More of that will do nicely come Monday evening, live on Sky.
