Shittu no stranger to final day Blackpool drama

Man mountain centre back Danny Shittu will know all about last day drama at Bloomfield Road after playing a major part on loan with a Blackpool side who snatched a play-off place on the final day of the 2000-2001 season.

The towering defender was snapped up from obscurity in Charlton`s reserves by Seasiders boss Steve McMahon and netted a priceless goal at Darlington in a 2-1 last game victory way back in May 2001.

Shittu, who will look to add to his 9 goals this season, notched up 19 appearances for Blackpool - including run outs in the 3rd Division Play-Off semi final victories over Hartlepool - but missed out on the celebrations of promotion at the Millenium Stadium as the Tangerines ran out 4-2 victors over Leyton Orient.

Only defenders Danny Coid and John Hills remain in the Blackpool squad from Shittu`s time so the Watford centre back shouldn`t be too struck with nostalgia!

Blackpool should be frightened of Danny. He is going to score tommorrow. He hasn't scored for a while. (1881 'till I die)
