Match Preview: AFC Wimbledon (H)

Seasiders Set To Face The Dons

19 October 2018

The first of back-to-back home games sees Blackpool host AFC Wimbledon at Bloomfield Road tomorrow, kick-off 3pm.

It will be a welcome return to action for The Seasiders, who missed out on a fixture last weekend due to a postponement. 

Pool are nine matches unbeaten in the league, though the need to win more games has been stressed in the build-up to this game. AFC Wimbledon, meanwhile, will be aiming to get back on track, having lost their last three by one-goal margins.  

Team News: 

Harry Pritchard and Chris Taylor are available for selection, while Steven Davies has now been signed up on a short-term contract. Jimmy Ryan (knee) and Max Clayton (hamstring) remain the longer-term absentees.

The Dons could welcome Scott Wagstaff back from injury, though Anthony Wordsworth misses out. Late checks will be made on Andy Barcham and Joe Piggott.  

The Manager's View: 

The Ref: 

Anthony Backhouse will be the man in the middle, having refereed Blackpool's Carabao Cup fixture at Doncaster Rovers in August.

Tilt and Bola On Target In Victory

20 October 2018

Goals from Curtis Tilt and Marc Bola saw Blackpool stretch their unbeaten run to 10 games in Sky Bet League One with a 2-0 victory against AFC Wimbledon.

Tilt opened the scoring early on to score his third goal of the season, before Marc Bola opened his account for the club late on to wrap up the three points.

Manager Terry McPhillips made two changes from Blackpool’s last league outing, restoring Donervon Daniels and Harry Pritchard to the side in place of Ben Heneghan and Liam Feeney.

It took Blackpool seven minutes to open the scoring, with Curtis Tilt claiming a touch on a Jay Spearing corner. Just a minute earlier, Harry Pritchard had struck the bar with a header.

Wimbledon aimed to respond when Jake Jervis sent a menacing drive just wide of the post, while Harry Pritchard blasted another effort over for The Seasiders.

Opportunities were proving to be at a premium in the first-half, however Kwesi Appiah forced Mark Howard into a fine save as the interval approached.

Half-Time: Blackpool 1 AFC Wimbledon 0

The visitors created two good chances immediately after the restart, with Jake Jervis heading over at the near post and Kwesi Appiah nodding the ball straight at Howard.

Jordan Thompson tried to slip Nathan Delfouneso through at the other end, however his pass proved to be a little too short for the forward.

A last-ditch challenge from Marc Bola then denied Jervis from finding the target, having been on the verge of a one-on-one.

It was proving to be a spell of pressure that Blackpool had to see out, as Appiah once again headed straight at Howard and Scott Wagstaff lashed wide from inside the area.

Liam Feeney was introduced off the bench for The Seasiders as a replacement for Harry Pritchard, in an effort to put The Dons on the back foot again.

The visiting pressure continued though, with Neal Ardley’s side pumping ball after ball into the box for the likes of Hanson and substitute Joe Pigott to challenge for.

Jay Spearing looked to ease that bombardment when he let fly from 30-yards out, only to see his drive rise just over the top of the bar.

The second goal did come a minute later however, as Marc Bola won the ball near the half-way line and surged forward before finding the bottom corner. It was a crucial time for the former Arsenal man to score his first for the club.

Armand Gnanduillet had a late chance to make it three for Blackpool yet was dispossessed as he lined up to fire home Liam Feeney’s cut-back.
