Pool were backed by 1,823 fans on a Tuesday night in March, where Jay Spearing's late penalty sealed a narrow 2-1 victory.

There was a real party atmosphere inside the stadium that night as supporters celebrated the recent removal of their despised previous owner.

It will be Blackpool's biggest away following since last month's 0-0 draw at Rochdale, where 2,014 supporters made the trip to Spotland.
