History of the Blackpool v Newcastle United fixture
Newcastle United face a trip to Blackpool at Bloomfield Road on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Magpies will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.
The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in September 2009, the Seasiders carving out a narrow 2-1 victory in a Championship match.
