The Big Preview: Wycombe Wanderers (H)

Seasiders Return To Action With Game Against Chairboys

22 October 2019

A 10-day break from league action ends tonight when Blackpool host high-flying Wycombe Wanderers in Sky Bet League One.

The Seasiders have waited patiently to bounce back from recent results and will be determined to get on track again with a big three points. 

To do that, the team must overcome a Wycombe side that currently sits second in the division and recorded a 1-0 victory at home to Sunderland on the weekend. 

Team News: 

The treatment table is now starting to clear up for Blackpool, who hope to welcome Sullay Kaikai and Joe Nuttall back into the fold. Jordan Thompson and Rocky Bushiri are also available again following international commitments. Ryan Hardie will be assessed though, having been forced off in the Leasing.com Trophy fixture at Carlisle United. 

The visitors are set to welcome Nnambi Ofoborh and Curtis Thompson back from suspension, though may opt to name an unchanged side. 

The Manager's View: 

Previous Meeting: 

The two teams played out a 2-2 draw when last at Bloomfield Road, with the previous game at Adams Park ending in stalemate. 

In fact, there has been nothing to separate the sides in the last five meetings. 

The Referee: 

Ben Toner will officiate tonight's match at Bloomfield Road. This will be the first time he has refereed a game involving the Seasiders. 

Match Sponsors: 

Main match sponsors this evening are Beaverbrooks the Jewellers, while Blackpool Minibuses sponsor the match ball. 

A big thank-you to both businesses for their support.

Match Reports

Report: Blackpool 1 Wycombe Wanderers 1

Even-Stevens at Bloomfield Road as Ben Heneghan’s header cancels out Scott Kashket’s first half strike.

22 October 2019

A much improved second 45 minutes ensured Blackpool took a deserved point from high flying Wycombe Wanderers on Tuesday night.

Scott Kashket gave the visitors the lead in the first half with a cute finish beyond Jak Alnwick but Ben Heneghan’s header five minutes after the restart meant Blackpool remained in eighth place.

Blackpool started the match the brightest with James Husband trying his luck on five minutes. The left-back cut inside past Wycombe defender Jack Grimmer and looked to bend one in with his right foot. The effort was blocked and fell to Sullay Kaikai but the number ten just couldn’t sort his feet out and the eventual shot was blocked by the Wycombe defence.

Despite the lively start from Simon Grayson’s men, the visitors took the lead just three minutes later. A long ball forward was flicked on by Adebayo Akinfenwa and Scott Kashket was able to knock the loose ball past the onrushing Jak Alnwick to give Wycombe an early lead.

Two minutes later another ball forward was picked up by Wycombe’s David Wheeler on the right-hand side. Thankfully, his long-range effort was easily held by Alnwick.

The best Blackpool chance of the first half came ten minutes before the half time whistle. Sullay Kaikai had a long effort zip just wide of the far post.

Half-Time: Blackpool 0 Wycombe Wanderers 1

Blackpool came out of the traps in the second half and almost found an equaliser in the opening 60 seconds. A lovely ball on the right from Liam Feeney found Nathan Delfouneso unmarked from just six yards out. The pace of the ball seemed to take the number seven by surprise though, and his header looped over the goal out for a goal kick.

The eventual equaliser followed just five minutes later. A lovely floating free kick from Sullay Kaikai made its way to the far post, with Ben Heneghan rising the tallest to loop his header over Ryan Allsop and into the back of the net.

Heneghan found the back of the net again minutes later with a bullet header directly from a corner kick – but the referee blew for a push on a Wycombe defender and ruled out the goal.

Blackpool pushed for a winner to nick the three points and there were muted claims for a penalty with 15 minutes remaining. A tussle between Wycombe’s Giles Phillips and Armand Gnanduillet resulted in the Blackpool frontman tumbling to the ground, but the referee waived the claims away.

A solid point against an in-form Wycombe Wanderers side, with a trip to Burton Albion on Saturday up next for the Seasiders.
