Wanderers fans have snapped up more than 2,000 tickets in rapid time for the upcoming trip to Blackpool.

Ian Evatt’s men head to Bloomfield Road on Saturday, February 24 in League One action and will be backed by another sold-out away end.

The Whites received an allocation of 2,135 tickets for the fixture against the Seasiders and the club confirmed around 10.30am that they were no longer available to purchase.

Wanderers thanked the fans for their “outstanding support” in a message via the club's official website.

Blackpool currently sit eighth in the League One table, six points off the play-off places, as they aim to bounce back from last season’s relegation from the Championship.

The Whites lost on penalties at Bloomfield Road in the Bristol Street Motors Trophy quarter-final last month despite a couple of impressive stops by Joel Coleman in the shoot-out.

However, Evatt’s men came out on top when the sides met at the Toughsheet Community Stadium in November. George Thomason got the decisive goal with a thumping strike midway through the second half.

Wanderers will be hoping for their first victory at Bloomfield Road since December 1977 under Ian Greaves.

It is also a special fixture for Evatt, who enjoyed a successful spell at Blackpool during his playing career.

The Bolton boss was a key part of the squad that won promotion to the Premier League under Ian Holloway, along with goalkeeping coach Matt Gilks.

Ahead of the previous trip to Bloomfield Road, Evatt told The Bolton News: “It will be a big night for me, and I love the place.

“I have some really fond memories there. It was a brilliant time for my playing career and I have nothing but admiration for that football club.

“But I think you guys know me well enough by now to know that there will be nobody who wants to win that game more than me.”
