Ian Holloway has played down tomorrow’s Blackpool reunion, claiming it ‘won’t be special at all.’

Blackpool travel to London to face Millwall on the back of their worst start to a season in 116 years after four defeats on the bounce.

They face former favourite Holloway who famously managed the side to promotion to the Premier League in 2010.

It’s the fourth time he’s faced Pool since leaving two years ago, and claims it now means very little. “Will it be special? Not at all,” said Holloway.

“I think (Nathan) Delfouneso is the only player I had there now. It’s water under the bridge.

“I did the best job I could there but I work for Millwall now.”

Millwall enjoyed a superb start to the season but have stuttered a little in recent weeks and crashed out of the League Cup against Southampton in midweek.

And Holloway is hoping tomorrow’s game will see his side bounce back.

He said: “It’s just a Championship game, I’m delighted to still be in it and I want to get up to the other end of it.

“We’ve got to stop this rot of losing at home.

“It’s been three very difficult home games and hopefully our fans will see us improve.”
