Seasiders Aim To Round Off 2018 With Positive Result

28 December 2018

Blackpool's final game of 2018 takes place tomorrow, as The

Terry McPhillips' side will be aiming to shake off some disappointing results of late and revert back to winning ways in the division. 

The hosts, now managed by Wally Downes, have recorded consecutive victories against Wycombe Wanderers and Plymouth Argyle. 

Team News:

Jordan Thompson serves the first of a three-match suspension following his dismissal against Rochdale on Boxing Day. Ollie Turton and Curtis Tilt are edging closer to returns, though Mark Cullen, Joe Dodoo, Jimmy Ryan and Max Clayton remain sidelined. 

The Dons will make a late check on the fitness of striker James Hanson, who limped off against Plymouth in midweek. Deji Oshilaja and Joe Pigott continue to miss out due to injury, however Mitch Pinnock returns from a one-game ban. 

The Manager's View: 

"It's another real tough game now away at Wimbledon but if the players are as honest as they were against Rochdale and keep having a go, then it'll turn round and we'll start winning games again."  

The Referee: 

Dean Whitestone will referee the match between the sides, having officiated 22 games so far this season. 

He last refereed a Blackpool fixture in April 2017, which came away at Notts County.

Match Reports

Report: AFC Wimbledon 0 Blackpool 0

Stalemate At Kingsmeadow

29 December 2018

Blackpool were left to rue a lack of cutting edge in front of goal, as they played out a stalemate at AFC Wimbledon.

Armand Gnanduillet and substitute Harry Pritchard both had great opportunities to break the deadlock at Kingsmeadow, however those chances went astray on a frustrating afternoon.

The point did halt a three-match losing streak in Sky Bet League One though, taking the team on to 35 for the season.   

Manager Terry McPhillips made two changes to his side for the fixture, with John O’Sullivan and Chris Taylor both starting. Jordan Thompson missed out due to suspension.

The Seasiders went close to breaking the deadlock inside four minutes, when Armand Gnanduillet met a cross from Marc Bola, only to see his header pushed away by Tom King.

Chris Taylor was then expecting his strike to nestle into the bottom corner from 18-yards, though King made another vital save to keep AFC Wimbledon level.  

The chances continued for Blackpool, as Ben Heneghan came charging through a crowd of bodies to nod wide from a corner.

The hosts, clearly playing a game plan, looked to lump the ball long at every opportunity for Kwesi Appiah and Jake Jervis to chase. Their most dangerous opportunity came via Terell Thomas though, with the defender heading a corner delivery wide from close range.

Half-time: AFC Wimbledon 0 Blackpool 0

It was AFC Wimbledon who started the second-half strongly, retaining a lot of possession in Blackpool’s half. Keeper Mark Howard had to be aware at his near post to push away a low drilled cross from Andy Barcham.

Blackpool’s Marc Bola then became the first player of the afternoon to be shown a yellow card when he tugged back substitute Tyler Burey.

Armand Gnanduillet was left unmarked from a Jay Spearing free-kick just past the hour mark, however his header was comfortably saved.

The Seasiders opted to change things soon after, introducing Harry Pritchard off the bench for John O’Sullivan.

It was Pritchard who then had the best chance of the game. Nathan Delfouneso whipped a great ball across the six-yard box and the midfielder ended up firing over the bar.

At the other end, Mark Howard made himself big to prevent Terell Thomas from breaking the deadlock in The Dons’ favour.

Blackpool’s top scorer Armand Gnanduillet came agonisingly close to putting Pool ahead in the 81st minute, flicking the ball just wide at the near post.

With time now ticking away, Steven Davies was thrown on in place of Jay Spearing, who appeared to have picked up a knock.

Though no chances fell to Davies, Blackpool almost nicked a winner through an unlikely source – an own goal. In the end, it wasn’t to be though.

Full-Time: AFC Wimbledon 0 Blackpool 0
