The club have now been handed a further allocation of 4,874 tickets.

Should they sell out then it will be the biggest away following of a remarkable season so far.

Around 5,000 fans made the trip to the Ricoh Arena in September.

The extra Blackpool tickets will go on sale to season card holders with 0 points tomorrow, before going on general sale the following day.

Initial tickets were priced at £22 for adults, £18 for over-60s and £10 for under-18s, while under-11s were allowed to go free with a full-paying adult or over-60.
