Blackpool's pre-season preparation will continue apace this Saturday when they take on their first friendly open to the public at Southport.

This will be the Seasiders' second pre-season friendly, having gone down to a narrow 1-0 defeat against Dundee United last week.

The match was played behind closed doors at St Andrews during their week-long training camp in Scotland.

They will now travel to Haig Avenue this Saturday to take on the National League North side, with the game kicking off at 3pm.
