Craig Cathcart believes that Blackpool's team spirit may be the deciding factor in keeping them up this season.
The 22-year-old puts the strong bond at the Seasiders down to the unorthodox approach of manager Ian Holloway.
Since gaining promotion from the Championship, the maverick boss took his team on team building trips to the local landmarks including the beach.
The club had a strong start to the year only to lose momentum at a crucial time, yet despite a lack of recent results, the former Manchester United defender believes it is the spirit at the club that will see them across the finish line.
"There is a fantastic bond at the club," Cathcart told the Sun ahead of a trip to Fulham on Sunday.
"I'd suggest we're probably even tighter than our rivals because of what we've been through together.
"The feeling of togetherness gets stronger when you're running on the beach in the snow together.
"We haven't had any days at the casino or the pleasure beach for a while because of all the games. But it's also because the manager could see we'd got that spirit he was trying to build."
