Blackpool have had it hard over the last two seasons, one of the three bookies favourites in a return to League One since they won promotion via the play-offs in 2007, and at 7/4 are no doubt amongst the favourites again for the 2009/10 Championship outing.

However the Tangerines had a difficult season last season, losing manager Simon Grayson to Leeds United and coping with what is a less than average side, but after writing off the critics there is no doubt that have become used to their more familiar underdog role but should be just about equipped to see themselves safe yet again!

Blades-Mad Predicted Finish: 18th
