The Blackpool boss Ian Holloway insists his side's chances of a win over Manchester United in the final round of the English football Premiership this weekend, doesn't depend on the champions fielding a weakened team.

Sir Alex Ferguson is expected to rest a number of players ahead of the Champions League final. However he says they won't be taking Blackpool lightly.

Blackpool are one of five clubs - along with Blackburn, Wolves, Birmingham and Wigan - who could join West Ham in the Championship next season.

Holloway believes Sir Alex would be offended by suggestions that he would not want to win his side's final home game of the season.

In the key relegation matches this weekend, Blackpool play manchester United, Wigan play Stoke, Birminghan play Tottenham and Wolves play Blackburn.
