Talking to the Blackpool Gazette Oyston still believes that the team can remain a Premiership side and adds that it is very much in their hands.

“It is still in our hands, which is a fantastic achievement by the manager and the team. I think we’d all have settled for it being in our hands with three games to go.But the only time the league table matters is after the final whistle on the last day.

“I think we’ll give it our best shot and the team will do the very best they can, which is all we can expect from them.”

Regarding Holloway’s position the Blackpool chairman said.

“Whatever happens, we’ve had a fantastic season. I certainly hope Ian will be manager next season. And unless he’s told you different, he will definitely be the manager here next season.”

Blackpool are currently in 17th position on 35 points with three games to go.
