Match Preview: Shrewsbury Town

Seasiders Back On The Road

17 August 2018

Blackpool's second away fixture of the season sees the team face Shrewsbury Town at Montgomery Waters Meadow tomorrow (Saturday).

Both sides go into the game in search of their first three points of the season, though The Seasiders are buoyed by a midweek victory against Barnsley in the Carabao Cup. 

Interim manager Terry McPhillips will once again oversee things for Blackpool, while the hosts have former Macclesfield Town manager John Askey in the dugout this season. 

Team News: 

Competition for places has heightened in the Blackpool squad since Tuesday, with the eight changes for the Barnsley match impressing in tangerine. Donervon Daniels and Curtis Tilt both came through their run-outs unscathed, while Mark Cullen will hope to retain his place in the starting line-up. 

James Bolton, Ollie Norwood and Aaron Amadi-Holloway have all been labelled doubts for Shrewsbury, though Luke Hendrie could be involved for the first time this season. 

The Ref: 

Ollie Yates will officiate the match between the two sides, having last taken charge of a Blackpool match in March. He has refereed two games so far this season and handed out seven yellow cards.

Stalemate At Montgomery Waters Me

18 August 2018

Blackpool and Shrewsbury Town played out a goal-less draw at Montgomery Waters Meadow, with neither side able to break the deadlock.

It was the hosts who came closest to taking all three points, with Pool ‘keeper Mark Howard pulling off a vital save to deny Josh Laurent in the 89th minute.

Interim manager Terry McPhillips made six changes from the midweek Carabao Cup victory against Barnsley, with Ollie Turton, Paudie O’Connor, Ben Heneghan, Ollie Turton, Chris Taylor and Nathan Delfouneso all restored to the starting line-up.

The Seasiders made a strong start to the game, though did see midfielder Chris Taylor booked inside five minutes.

It was the hosts who grew into the match after that period however, with Alex Gilliead forcing Ollie Turton to clear away from danger after getting round Ben Heneghan.

Another opportunity presented itself soon after, yet Shrewsbury were unable to make it count. Three players swarmed around Curtis Tilt to win possession and broke forward in numbers but, luckily for The Seasiders, the final pass went astray.

Even though Ollie Turton had a half chance from the edge of the box, it was Shrewsbury who continued to look the livelier in the attacking third. Josh Laurent drilled an effort just wide of the post in the 33rd minute.

Blackpool’s only meaningful opportunities fell to Curtis Tilt, who headed straight at the ‘keeper on two occasions from corners.

Half-Time: Shrewsbury Town 0 Blackpool 0

Pool opted to make a change for the second-half, with Donervon Daniels replacing Chris Taylor. It resulted in a re-shuffle at the back, as Daniels lined up at right-back and Ollie Turton moved into midfield.

Set-plays were proving to be Blackpool’s best opportunity of finding the breakthrough, with Jay Spearing registering a shot on target with a free-kick that landed straight into the arms of the ‘keeper.

At the other end, Shrewsbury were continuing to look the more dangerous and saw a header from Lenell John-Lewis inside the six-yard box deflect over the bar.

Another Blackpool change came in the 67th minute, when Jordan Thompson was introduced for Paudie O’Connor. The ex-Rangers man quickly looked to gain control of the ball in the middle of the park.

Lenell John Lewis had the ball in the net in the 71st minute, however the linesman had already flagged for a handball.

Jordan Thompson had an effort saved as Blackpool continued to try and create an opening, while Nathan Delfouneso fired over the bar.

Shrewsbury had the best chance to win it with a minute of normal time remaining, however Mark Howard got down well to keep out Josh Laurent’s low, rasping drive.

Full-Time: Shrewsbury Town 0 Blackpool 0
