Season synopsis

After drawing their opening league game, 2–2 at home to Hull City, Blackpool went on to lose their next four games, scoring only once in the process. After their victory over Lincoln City at Bloomfield Road on 4 October, Blackpool went on an eight-game winless streak.

After winning only nine games all season, the club finished fifth from the bottom of the table, with the lowest goals-scored tally (33) in the division.

Their FA Cup run ended at the first hurdle with a single-goal defeat at Gillingham on New Year's Day.
