Photo gallery of Preston North End's visits to Blackpool down the years

Preston North End and Blackpool renewing their derby rivalry is just a few days away.

The teams will meet at Bloomfield Road on Saturday afternoon, the first meeting since August 2013.

And not for almost 12 years have North End ventured to the other end of the M55 to visit the seaside.

Both teams have Championship games on Wednesday night but here as a warm-up for the weekend are some photos from trips made by the Lilywhites to Blackpool since 1985.
