Match Preview: Shrewsbury Town (H)

Seasiders Host The S

18 January 2019

Blackpool will aim to use victory at Portsmouth last weekend as a springboard for a good run of results, as Shrewsbury Town prepare to visit Bloomfield Road on Saturday.

That 1-0 win at Fratton Park ended a wait of five league matches without one and lifted confidence for what's to come. 

Speaking of confidence, Shrewsbury will also be bouyed by fighting back to beat Stoke City in the Emirates FA Cup in midweek. 

The Shrews, who appointed Sam Ricketts as manager last month, are without a league win post-Christmas, however. 

Team News: 

Chris Long is pushing for a start after making an immediate impact off the bench against Portsmouth, while Ollie Turton and Curtis Tilt are set to make welcome returns to the squad. Nathan Delfouneso has also recovered from the knock that forced him off in last weekend's victory. 

The visitors will be without midfielder Dave Edwards, who picked up a groin injury on his second debut for the club. John Lenell-Lewis is also sidelined after recently suffering a cruciate knee ligament injury. 

The Manager's View: 

The Ref: 

Eddie Ilderton is the man with the whistle for the game, having officiated three matches already this season. 

His last Blackpool fixture came in February 2018, when The Seasiders drew 1-1 with Peterborough United. 

Minute's Silence: 

The club will be holding a minute's silence in memory of those former players and supporters who passed away in 2018. 

The names of those to be remembered will be listed in the match programme, on the website and feature in a video to go out on social media.

Stalemate At Bloomfield Road

19 January 2019

Blackpool and Shrewsbury Town played out a goal-less draw at Bloomfield Road this afternoon.

In a game of limited opportunities, the hosts almost snatched all three points late on when Chris Long struck the underside of the bar.

The Seasiders welcomed Curtis Tilt back from injury for the fixture, while Long was rewarded with a start after making an instant impact on debut.

It was Shrewsbury who started the better though. Josh Laurent had a good opportunity to give the visitors the lead in the 11th minute, only to drag his shot wide from eight-yards out.

After then watching Greg Docherty drill wide from a free-kick, Laurent was presented with another chance, though this time he was unable to convert from Luke Waterfall’s flick on.

Just minutes later, Laurent made it a hat-trick of first-half efforts when he flashed wide from a tight angle.

At the other end of the pitch, Blackpool were not finding their usual rhythm and had failed to test Steve Arnold in the opposition goal.

Half-Time: Blackpool 0 Shrewsbury Town 0

The Seasiders new that a much-improved performance would be required for the second-half, yet a wide Jordan Thompson strike from distance was the best the side could initially muster.

While the visitors continued to look a threat on the counter attack, it was Armand Gnanduillet who had Blackpool’s best effort after the hour mark. Pool’s top scorer got across his man at the near post but headed over.

An injury to Callum Guy soon resulted in a first change of the game, with Harry Pritchard taking the ex-Derby man’s place in midfield.

Chris Long almost backed up his Portsmouth match-winner late on when he slammed an effort against the crossbar, while Armand Gnanduillet glanced narrowly wide.

With the game petering out for a draw, manager Terry McPhillips opted to throw on Michael Nottingham and John O’Sullivan for Liam Feeney and Chris Long.

Despite the changes, the team couldn’t find a breakthrough and were left to settle for a point.

Full-Time: Blackpool 0 Shrewsbury Town 0
