Blackpool currently find themselves rooted to the bottom of the Championship table and an ominous 10 points from safety.
With just two wins in their last 10 games, Lee Clark’s Seasiders are staring relegation right in the face come the end of the season.
But when you look at the state of their pitch, is it really that hard to believe?

With huge holes, giant cut up sections and plenty of sand for good measure, it looks more like a farmer’s field than a football ground.
