Evatt out to make life tough for Hammers
Blackpool defender Ian Evatt has hit out at what he perceives to be an air of overconfidence from West Ham ahead the play-off final.
Ian Holloway's Seasiders head into the contest on a nine-match unbeaten run, but in the knowledge they shipped eight goals across two defeats to the Hammers in the league this term. A final points total 11 shy of Sam Allardyce's men has also been used as a reason to discount Blackpool's hopes in some quarters, but Evatt insists West Ham should take his team-mates lightly at their peril. "If you listen to them, they're already up aren't they?" he said. "It's going to be a 90-minute game and it's going to be difficult for them as it is for us. "If I was them I wouldn't be counting my chickens just yet because what I have learned over the past five or six season is these players never give up. "It's a fantastic Blackpool team and one that it's a privilege to play in."
