Match Preview: Luton Town

Seasiders Host The Hatters

21 September 2018

Blackpool return to Bloomfield Road with a Sky Bet League One fixture against Luton Town tomorrow.

Just two points separate the two sides in the league table, with Blackpool currently on an nine-match unbeaten run in all competitions and Luton having won four of their last six games. 

The Hatters, promoted to this division in April, recorded a 1-0 victory against Bristol Rovers last time out, while Blackpool did likewise at Plymouth Argyle. 

Team News: 

Marc Bola is eligible to play, though Donervon Daniels must now serve a three-match suspension following his dismissal at Home Park last weekend. Ben Heneghan or Paudie O'Connor will likely start at the back. Jimmy Ryan (knee) is set for a prolonged spell on the sidelines after it was revealed that he now requires an operation. 

The visitors will be without Eunan O'Kane, who has now returned to parent club Leeds United after fracturing his tibia and fibula. Luke Berry also misses out with a knee problem. 

The Manager's View:

Sixth League Clean Sheet of the Season In Stalemate

22 September 2018

Blackpool kept a sixth league clean sheet and extended their unbeaten run in all competitions to 10 matches with a goal-less draw at home to Luton Town.

In a game of few clear-cut chances, Mark Howard was the busier of the two goalkeepers and produced two fine stops to deny former loanee Elliot Lee.

The Seasiders’ best chance fell to Jordan Thompson in the second-half, however he volleyed over the bar from eight-yards out.

Manager Terry McPhillips made two enforced changes to his line-up for the game, with Donervon Daniels suspended and Harry Pritchard injured. Ben Heneghan and John O’Sullivan were the players to occupy those positions.

The visitors were offered the first potential sight on goal when a free-kick was awarded inside two minutes, however Jorge Grant fired his effort straight at the wall.

At the other end, a great cover tackle on Liam Feeney denied him space to shoot inside the area, while a great overlapping run and cross from Ollie Turton was unable to be converted by Mark Cullen.

Two vital saves from Mark Howard kept the scoreline at 0-0 as the half-hour mark approached, first to stop what would have been an own goal from Ben Heneghan and then to push away a strike from Elliot Lee.

James Shea, the Luton ‘keeper, prevented Lian Feeney from scoring his first goal for the club when he tipped over his dipping strike from range.  

Half-Time: Blackpool 0 Luton Town 0

Blackpool introduced Callum Guy for the second-half as they looked to get a stronger grip on the game. John O’Sullivan was the player withdrawn.

Guy appeared to bring more energy to the middle of the park, which resulted in Blackpool carving out a few more opportunities.

Marc Bola’s fizzing cross just evaded Mark Cullen, while Jordan Thompson nodded wide following a great delivery from Nathan Delfouneso.

The latter was replaced as the 70th minute mark approached. Michael Nottingham was the man to take his place in the side.

A quick counter-attack gave Mark Cullen an opportunity inside the box, however his shot took a deflection before going behind for a corner.

Mark Howard kept out another strike from Elliot Lee to preserve Blackpool’s clean sheet, while Jordan Thompson volleyed over for The Seasiders.

The Northern Ireland international had another chance soon after, yet this time he struck the ball straight into the arms of the ‘keeper.

Mark Howard, arguably Blackpool’s Man of the Match, produced another fine stop to ensure the team a share of the spoils in the 88th minute. It was former loan player Elliot Lee who was denied once again.

Full-Time: Blackpool 0 Luton Town 0
