Swindon's first ever meetings with Blackpool came as both sides were chasing promotion to the old First Division in 1969/70. After Blackpool won the first ever meeting, beating the Town 3-2 at Bloomfield Road despite two Don Rogers penalties, the return fixture at the County Ground came at a crunch point - the third last game of the season. In front of a crowd of over 28,000, Arthur Horsfield gave Swindon the lead, but the Seasiders equalised through Possee with just minutes to go. The result left Blackpool three points ahead of the Town, in second place - and they went on to secure their promotion, Swindon finishing in a then club record of fifth place. The Town gained some sort of revenge in 1996, when again the two sides were embroiled in a promotion battle, again in the Second Division, but this time in the third tier. This time, a 15th minute Kevin Horlock strike gave Swindon the lead at Bloomfield Road, and although Blackpool pegged them back to 1-1, the result was enough to confirm Swindon's promotion, and although it left the Seasiders five points clear of third placed Oxford and only two games left, they were overtaken by the Town's rivals by the end of the season. The two sides have been very evenly matched over recent years - in the twenty years between 1987 and 2007, eleven of the thirteen matches with the Seasiders have resulted in draws - the other two results being 1-0 victories for each side in the 2001/02 season
