Blackpool’s supporters pelted the main reception of Bloomfield Road with a flare, a smoke bomb, fireworks and eggs before their game with Reading last night.

Hundreds gathered outside of the stadium a day after Blackpool’s relegation to League One was confirmed, demanding chairman Karl Oyston leaves the club.

And supporters vented their frustration prior to last night’s game chanting ‘Oyston out’ and ‘we’re relegated because of your greed’ before a flare, a smoke bomb and fireworks were thrown into the cordoned-off area in front of the main entrance.

Stewards and police were present but the protests did not spill over into violence, there were no arrests.

Despite widespread criticism from media, supporters and former players, Pool’s chairman remained tight-lipped last night, insisting he won’t be making any comment on the club’s position.
