Birmingham City and Blackpool meet in the second-leg of their Championship play-offs semi-final at St Andrews on Wednesday.
The Tangerines head into the decider with a 1-0 advantage after a Curtis Davies own-goal handed them the slenderest of victories when the two sides met at Bloomfield Road on Friday.
But Blues boss Chris Hughton is not ready to wave the white flag just yet, and is backing his men to overturn the deficit and book their place at Wembley.
“They are probably slight favourites because they have that one-goal lead, but the semi-final is not over yet at all,” said the former Newcastle United manager.
“My thoughts are very much on how we play and if we’re able to impose ourselves on them more than perhaps we did then we’ve got a chance.”
Birmingham are favourites to win the second leg after 90 minutes and as there is no away goals rule in the Football League play-offs, any Birmingham victory by a one-goal margin would be enough to take the tie into extra time.
Hughton’s men took the spoils during the regular Championship season, securing a last-gasp 2-2 draw at Bloomfield Road before recording a comfortable 3-0 victory on home turf.
Birmingham would undoubtedly be delighted to repeat the feat when they welcome the Seasiders to St Andrews for a second time this season.
Both teams have shown prolific form in front of goal this season, with only Southampton and West Ham finding the net more often during the regular campaign.
Leading the way for Birmingham is experienced former Premier League star Marlon King, although he has been ably supported in the ‘goals for’ column by team-mates Chris Burke and Nikola Zigic.
Zigic found the net the last time these two sides met at St Andrews and is worth considering at 6/1 to score the first goal or the same price to get the last, having been left on the bench in the first leg.
But while King has led the way for Birmingham, Blackpool have depended on another former Premier League star for goals.
Sunderland legend and former Blues marksman Kevin Phillips has netted 16 times this season.
The experienced star is certainly worth considering, and would surely love nothing more than to fire his side into the final at the expense of his old club.
