A group of supporters are planning to protest during the game at Bloomfield Road, but Ferguson hopes they will restrict it to before and after the encounter.
The Seasiders are without a win in 15 games and Ferguson himself has yet to taste victory while holding the reins.
The 36-year-old told the Blackpool Gazette: "I can't tell the fans what to do, but at the end of the day we have 90 minutes here and we need to win a game.
"The games I've been in charge against Nottingham Forest and Doncaster, the fans have been unbelievable.
"I'd expect the same on Saturday."
Blackpool are desperate for a win and Ferguson is confident the supporters will back the team.
He said: "We are all pulling in the same direction and we all want the same thing, which is three points.
"I'd expect the fans to get behind us."
