16 March 2018

We take a look at the history books to see how fare against Blackpool...

The first meeting between the two sides came on 29th January 1921 in the FA Cup, the result went in Blues’ favour as they came out 1-0 winners.

The last time Southend won away at Bloomfield Road was in the 2005/06 season, this was also the last time Blues did the double over Blackpool.

We have played the Tangerines in three cup competitions, the FA Cup, the EFL Cup and the Football League Trophy.

We have faced Blackpool a total of 23 times, with Blues winning 10, drawing two and losing 11, with both draws coming in away games.

In terms of fixture dates we have never faced Blackpool at the start of the season (in the month of August).

52 goals have been scored in all the games between the two sides, with 29 coming from Southend and 33 coming from Blackpool.
