Hammers 1/9 and Blackpool 1/3 for the drop

| 08.05.2011

West Ham are all but relegated from the Premier League, according to Ladbrokes.

The bookies have shortened the Hammers to just 1/12 for the drop after they failed to beat Blackburn Rovers in their latest “must win” game.

Blackpool are 1/4 to return to the Championship following their 1-1 draw with Spurs.

Wolves’ win over West Brom has seen them lengthened out to 11/8 while Wigan are 1/3 to for the drop.

David Williams of Ladbrokes said: “West Ham’s failure to win has all but sounded the death knell for their Premier League aspirations. Blackpool are clinging on to their top flight status.”
