Gareth Bale travels to Bloomfield Road for the first time on Sunday insisting: “We can’t and won’t underestimate Blackpool.”
The flying winger is likely to come up against his Welsh international team-mate Neil Eardley as we take on the surprise package of the Premier League campaign so far.
Ian Holloway’s men have won a host of new fans with their brand of passing football and currently sit 10th in the table having lost just one of their last seven matches.
“It will be a difficult task but we have to be up for it as much as we were up for the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea,” said Gareth.
“We’ll prepare right and hopefully we’ll get the right result up there.
“We can’t underestimate Blackpool and won’t do that. A lot of teams have this season and come off on the losing side. We know it will be tough, especially at Blackpool.
“We always attack and watching a few of their games, they like to attack as well, so I’m sure it will be a great match.
"If we’re on our game, I’m confident we’ve got enough to beat them.”
