Despite having ended the regular campaign with four successive victories, Blackpool were not expected to brush aside Oxford with minimal fuss over two legs.
While they conceded three goals during the reverse fixture at Bloomfield Road, Neil Critchley‘s side were never under any real threat having prevailed 3-0 away from home.
Blackpool have now posted just two defeats, both by 1-0 scorelines, since the middle of February, and Critchley will do everything possible to ensure that complacency does not become an issue at the weekend.
That appears unlikely with the North-West outfit looking to end a six-year spell away from the Championship, the club finishing no higher than 10th position in League One during that time.
Ellis Simms stole the show during the first game against Oxford, but Jerry Yates has also chipped in with three goals and three assists from his last four outings.
BLACKPOOL and Lincoln City meet in a Wembley showdown with the winner promoted to the riches of the English Championship in this League One play-off final.
The Bloomfield Road side have done remarkably well to finish their season on a surge which saw them recover from a shaky start to see them jump into third place in the league.
They saw off Oxford United reasonably comfortably in the semi-finals and in fact, the 3-3 home leg (they were already 3-0 up from the first leg) was their first game in six they didn’t win outright.
And the Lincoln story is something of a fairytale. A Conference side just four years ago, they last played in the second tier of English football 60 years ago.
Blackpool manager Neil Critchley has turned the club around and will be confident of returning to the Championship.
