More than 100 Poolies of all ages are expected to join in the fancy dress tradition which has proved one of the highlights for fans in recent seasons.

They have caught the world's attention in previous years by dressing as white bearded smurfs, penguins, and oompa loompas.

If you are joining in the fun and going to the game we would love to see your pictures. We will publish a selection in Monday's Mail and online over the weekend.
