Blackpool forward Gary Taylor-Fletcher is hopeful the club can upset the odds at Manchester United to stay in the Premier League on Sunday.
The 29-year-old has played an important part of a rollercoaster season for the Seasiders, who need at least a point at Old Trafford to give themselves a real chance of safety.
They can lose, but they will then be relying on Tottenham to beat Birmingham by a big scoreline to see them stay up on goal difference.
It is a difficult ask to win at the newly-crowned Premier League champions, but Taylor-Fletcher feels his side can achieve one last upset to preserve their status in the top flight.
The game comes exactly a year to the day since their stirring play-off final against Cardiff, where they achieved an unlikely promotion with a 3-2 win at Wembley.
"At the weekend, it will be exactly 12 months since Wembley and let's hope we can have the same outcome," he said.
"We're capable of going to United and getting something - and we'll give our all.
"To be on 39 points with our squad after what people were saying about us is unbelievable.
"If we can produce the same attacking threat, we will have half a chance."
Injured midfielder David Carney will fly in from his home country of Australia to attend the game, and is confident that his team can get the job done.
"We would be a big loss to the Premier League and I'm going to be back in England to cheer the lads on," said Carney.
"I'm hopeful we can get something against Manchester United and that other results will also go our way.
"A lot of people want us to stay in the Premier League - not just our own fans - and that's because we play football the right way."
