Alex Baptiste: It's going to be tough for us

The Seasiders head into Michael Appleton's second game in charge having won only one of their last seven matches, but the Robins have lost all games in the same period to fall to the foot of the Championship table without a victory in 10.

Blackpool were 3-1 victors at Ashton Gate last year as part of their play-off push, but Baptiste is not reading too much into that encounter.

The defender said: "It's going to be different obviously - it's a massive game for them because they're on a bit of a bad run.

"But I think they're a really decent side. It's going to be tough for us.

"We need to start climbing the table again so we need to get three points."

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
