Seasiders Back In Action At Bloomfield Road

12 April 2019

Blackpool host Peterborough United in an eagerly-anticipated clash at Bloomfield Road tomorrow, as both sides look to keep play-off hope

The Seasiders, who recorded a draw at league leaders Luton Town last time out, sit one place behind the visitors in eighth, knowing that a victory would take them level on points with Darren Ferguson's side. 

However, Peterborough still hold a game in hand on many teams in the division, including sixth placed Doncaster Rovers. 

Team News: 

Blackpool continue to be in good shape, with Mark Howard, Jimmy Ryan and Max Clayton remaining the only absentees. Ollie Turton came through his return to action at Luton Town unscathed, while Nya Kirby will aim to retain his place in the side after netting his first senior goal at Kenilworth Road.

Peterborough can also boast plenty of options to choose from, with Joe Ward and Ben White expected to be available for selection again. Striker Matty Godden is pushing for a starting spot.

Maddison Ends Seasiders' Three-Game Unbeaten Run

13 April 2019

A first-half strike from Marcus Maddison proved enough to see Peterborough record a 1-0 victory over Blackpool at Bloomfield Road.

The winger struck just prior to half-time to end The Seasiders’ three-game unbeaten run and keep his own side in the push for the play-offs.

Blackpool, unchanged from the 2-2 draw at Luton Town, had the first opportunity to open the scoring inside seven minutes, with Armand Gnanduillet nodding agonisingly wide.

In reply, Peterborough United striker Ivan Toney found space to run and let fly from 22-yards out, however his effort failed to trouble Christoffer Mafoumbi.

It was the visitors who continued to dominate possession, with Blackpool proving pretty wasteful when the chance arose to attack. Liam Feeney did send a near post header over the bar in the 26th minute, though.

Toney, Peterborough’s top scorer, then made a run off his man and saw a first-time volley clip the top of the bar.

The Seasiders remained out of sorts and found themselves behind shortly before the interval. Marcus Maddison was slipped through on goal and he made no mistake with the finish.

Half-Time: Blackpool 0 Peterborough United 1

Things were still a little lacklustre from a Blackpool perspective after the break, with opportunities proving few and far between.

At the other end, Peterborough looked to find space on the counter attack and watched Ivan Toney fail to firmly test Chris Mafoumbi with half volley from just inside the box.

As the hour mark loomed, Blackpool opted to make a double substitution. Chris Long and Donervon Daniels were the players to come on, replacing Liam Feeney and Nathan Delfouneso.

The change in personnel also resulted in a change of formation, with The Seasiders switching to a 3-5-3 system, allowing Long to join Gnanduillet as an out-and-out striker.

Long made an instant impression with a burst down the line, cutting the ball back for Nya Kirby to shoot, however his effort was blocked by a defender.

Moments later, Long put in another great delivery from down the right, but Gnanduillet gambled on it too late, allowing the defender to get across him and clear.

Marcus Maddison almost had the chance to wrap the game up with his and Peterborough’s second of the afternoon, but he blazed over.  

Chris Long, who looked lively after his introduction, tried his luck from range for Blackpool but saw his 30-yard strike sail just over.

Having bounced off a few challenges, Matty Virtue caught a sight on goal from just outside the box, only to be denied by Aaron Chapman.

As four minutes of added time went up on the board, Chris Mafoumbi had to pull off a big save to deny the match-winner from adding to scoreline.
