History of the Blackpool v Newcastle United fixture

Newcastle Utd. travel to take on Blackpool at Bloomfield Road on Wednesday evening, 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 last time the two teams met at Blackpool was amazingly over twenty years ago, in September 1987, the Seasiders carving out a narrow 1 - 0 victory in a League Cup match.
