History of the Swansea City v Blackpool fixture

Swansea City prepare to entertain Blackpool at Liberty Stadium on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Swans are clearly on top, having won 11 and lost only 4 of the 20 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Liberty Stadium was less than a year ago, in May 2009, with Blackpool inflicting a narrow 0-1 defeat upon the Swans in a Championship match.
