Winners of the playoffs last term, Blackpool had started their first season back in the Championship poorly, taking a worrying two points from their opening six fixtures.
Forced to wait until mid-September for their first win of the campaign, it had looked as if Blackpool themselves would be confined to an immediate return to League One early on.
However, under the stewardship of Neil Critchley, the Seasiders were able to turn their fortunes around, winning seven of their next 10 Championship encounters.
Climbing up the table, Blackpool began November inside the top six spaces, but a current winless streak of seven matches has seen the tide come in and wash away any hopes of an unlikely playoff push.
Currently slumped down in 17th position, Blackpool will likely have to settle for mid-table mediocrity this season, with the gap to the top six now stretching to an ever-growing eight points.
One side who would have taken a mid-table finish at the beginning of the campaign are Peterborough, who have won only five of their 22 games so far.
As many expected, their return to the second tier has proven troublesome, with Darren Ferguson’s side currently occupying the final relegation position.
League One champions from the 2020-21 campaign, it looks like Posh will be competing it out in the third tier once again next year, as the competition above them looks to pull away.

Their performances in this fixture suggest that will probably be the case too, as Peterborough are winless in their last three meetings with Blackpool.
It is two-and-a-half years since Peterborough last triumphed over Blackpool, with Saturday’s Championship clash the most opportune moment to put that right
