Holloway hopes to avoid exodus
Blackpool boss Ian Holloway feels he will be able to keep his squad together for another promotion push in next season's Championship.
The Seasiders missed out on an immediate return to the Premier League on Saturday as they were beaten 2-1 by West Ham at Wembley in the Championship play-off final.
Holloway's team were triumphant in the final two years ago and lit up the Premier League for the one season they were there, but their relegation led to the squad being disassembled as other clubs picked off their prized assets.
Key figures such as Charlie Adam, DJ Campbell and David Vaughan left Bloomfield Road but Holloway is confident he can avoid a fire sale this time round.
"I don't think the squad will break up this time. That was the case last year, after a lot of them proved they could play at Premier League level," said Holloway. "I never wanted to let the likes of Charlie Adam or David Vaughan go, but such is life.
"We will move on this time, hopefully with the same squad, and attract more players if we can. It would have been easier for us if we got that money again, but all of that is for another day."
