SUPPORTERS DIRECT: Blackpool and Blackburn fans stand together in ownership protest
By Sam Morshead
Supporters of Blackpool and Blackburn used their teams’ meeting in the FA Cup on Saturday to stage a joint protest against their respective owners.
Venky’s and the Oyston family have been at loggerheads with their own fanbase for several years, with protests against each ownership relatively commonplace.
As an aside, Rovers won the game 2-0 in front of a sparse crowd.
