A nice day at the seaside is often seen as a way of relieving stress and charging up the batteries, but when you also have to watch City in a football game..... well!
In midweek it looked like a home win was finally upon us, but never fear, Millen's men managed to bugger things up and from being 2-0 up, we ended up losing.
Blackpool managed a 2-2 draw at the Ricoh Stadium when they played Coventry on Tuesday night and their last two home games have produced a win over Ipswich and a good draw with Cardiff.
But no-matter whether we win, draw or loose at Bloomfield, after the game we can always have some fun with some blokes girlfriend on a hen party... Result!
'We can't afford there to be any mental hangover from Tuesday,' Keith Millen told Bristol City Player TV.
'I've been under pressure from when I first took over the job. We've had some good spells and bad runs too.
'Tuesday wasn't so much about the pressure but more the disappointment. I spent all day Wednesday recovering.
'I know I work as hard as I can. We're all disappointed we haven't been getting the results.
'I can assure everyone that behind the scenes we are working really hard to turn things around.'
Defender Ian Evatt could miss this game after picking up an ankle injury at Coventry in midweek. Neal Eardley has been nursing a dislocated finger and a foot injury, but will be the most obvious replacement should Evatt not make it.
Midfielder Elliott Grandin is out with a foot injury.
Manager Ian Holloway has a touchline ban.
Masterstroke bringing him into the club after he left Birmingham. Five goals in nine games has soon turned him into a fans favourite at Blackpool.
Bristol City manager Keith Millen could leave out goalkeeper David James and recall Dean Gerken.
Cole Skuse has been struggling with illness and is unlikely to play, while Jamie McAllister and Liam Fontaine remain sidelined with ankle injuries.
Two goals from the last two games for Brett, if he plays he will be looking to add to that tally.
Of 88 league clashes, Blackpool have won 29, Bristol City 35, with a share of the spoils in 24.
Bristol City hold a seven-match undefeated sequence against Blackpool (W4, D3).
Blackpool have not beaten the Robins since a 4-2 triumph at Ashton Gate in August 2006. Their most recent home victory was in November 2003, in the third tier.

I'm not at all hopeful after Tuesday. Hope I'm wrong but I see a 2-1 win for the home side.
