The Big Preview: Ipswich Town (A)

Seasiders Take On The Tractor Boys

22 November 2019

Blackpool will take a six-match unbeaten run on the road this weekend, as the Seasiders face second placed Ipswich Town.

Victory for Simon's Grayson's side, who have won four consecutive matches in all competitions, would cut the gap to the automatic promotion spots, however the hosts do have two games in hand on the teams around them. 

Portman Road hasn't been the most favourable of grounds for Blackpool down the years, so the team will be looking to change that record for the better and keep up that winning momentum. 

Team News: 

The Seasiders welcome Jordan Thompson, Rocky Bushiri and Christoffer Mafoumbi back from international commitments, though a couple of other players face late fitness checks. 

The Tractor Boys head into the match after an Emirates FA Cup replay at Lincoln City on Wednesday night and are set to recall strike pair James Norwood and Kayden Jackson. Luke Chambers is also expected to be restored to the line-up. 

The Manager's View: 

The Referee: 

Championship official Stephen Martin will oversee proceedings at Portman Road, having last refereed a Blackpool game in April 2015. 

Tickets: 

Match tickets must now be purchased from the stadium on the day - cash only on turnstiles 10 and 11. 

Tickets remain priced at: 

  • £27 for Adults
  • £20 for Seniors (65+)
  • £14 for Under-23s

Report: Ipswich Town 2 Blackpool 2

Blackpool Claim Good Point On The Road

23 November 2019

Blackpool held on to secure a great point on their travels following a frantic 2-2 draw at Portman Road.

Goals from Joe Nuttall, who was called up to replace the injured Armand Gnanduillet, and a penalty from Jay Spearing ensured the Seasiders claimed a share of the spoils in front of nearly 20,000 fans.

Three minutes had passed when the home side had a really good chance. Ben Heneghan’s misplaced pass to Ryan Edwards was intercepted by Danny Rowe, who weaved his way into the penalty area but his shot went just wide of Alnwick’s far past.

Minutes later, Sullay Kaikai had a wonderful free-kick fom 25 yards out palmed away by Will Norris in Ipswich’s goal.

With nine minutes on the clock, Ipswich took the lead through Gwion Edwards who latched onto a header across goal from eight yards out. Ipswich’s number seven was the first to pounce and smashed the ball into the roof of the net.

Blackpool soaked up a good amount of pressure in the minutes that followed and caught Ipswich on the counter-attack on 22 minutes. James Husband did well down the left hand side to lift in a cross at the back post to Joe Nuttall who’s header was initially blocked but the striker smashed home the rebound to level it at one apiece.

Half-Time: Ipswich Town 1 Blackpool 1

The tables turned just five minutes into the second half as Blackpool were awarded a penalty after Sullay Kaikai was brought down in the area. Jay Spearing stepped up and smashed the penalty into the side netting, with Will Norris going the right way but getting no where near it.

It was an end to end encounter, and just five minutes after Blackpool’s penalty, Ipswich were awarded one at the other end following a hand ball in the box. Luke Garbutt took the penalty, sending Alnwick the wrong way to level the score again at 2-2 with 35 minutes still to play.

With 68 minutes on the clock, Ipswich were piling on the pressure and thought they’d retaken the lead when a header at goal following a corner was cleared off the line by Jay Spearing. Despite loud claims that the ball had crossed the line, the referee waived them away and no goal was given.

The home side tried all they could to claim a winner but Blackpool's defence stood tall and strong to take a well deserved point back home to Bloomfield Road.

Full-Time: Ipswich Town 2 Blackpool 2

Team: Alnwick, Edwards, Heneghan, Delfouneso, Spearing, Kaikai (Thompson, 83’), Feeney, Virtue (Guy, 65’), Nuttall, Husband, Macdonald (Turton, 65’).

Subs: Hardie, Scannell, Tilt, Sims
