The Big Preview: MK Dons (H)

Seasiders Back In Action At Bloomfield

13 September 2019

Blackpool will aim to bounce back with the right result when hosting MK Dons tomorrow.

The Seasiders, left smarting by a 3-2 defeat to Coventry City last weekend, are unbeaten at Bloomfield Roade soil and will want to push up the table again by extending that record.

The visitors arrive in search of their first away win of the season in the league, having lost out at Wycombe Wanderers and Accrington Stanley. Three points at home to AFC Wimbledon last time out made it nine points from a possible 18 since promotion.  

Team News: 

Nathan Delfouneso is the only player missing for Blackpool, with the forward having sustained a fresh hamstring injury at Coventry. Jordan Thompson and Rocky Bushiri return from international duty. 

MK Dons are expected to be without defender Baily Cargill for the next month with an ankle injury, however Callum Brittain could be involved after returning to training. 

Previous Meeting: 

The two sides played out a goal-less draw when they last met, which came at Stadium:MK in March 2018. The meeting at Bloomfield Road prior to that ended in a 1-0 victory for Blackpool, with the winning goal coming courtesy of Sean Longstaff. 

The Manager's Thoughts:

Seasiders Fall To Comprehensive Defeat At Bloomfield Road

14 September 2019

Blackpool fell to their first home defeat of the season, as MK Dons recorded a 3-0 victory at Bloomfield Road.

On an afternoon to forget for the Seasiders, goals from Russell Martin, Jordan Houghton and David Kasumu wrapped up the three points for the visitors and made it consecutive losses for the team in tangerine.  

Manager Simon Grayson made two changes for the fixture, with Ben Heneghan making his first league start since returning to the club and Jordan Thompson restored to the line-up following his international commitments.

The Seasiders didn’t get off to the best of starts though, conceding a goal inside the first five minutes. A cross into the box wasn’t dealt with and that allowed the unmarked Russell Martin to put the visitors in front.

Armand Gnanduillet did his best to try and reply on the 15-minute mark, sending a glancing header just wide of the far post.

That proved to be the only chance of note that the team could muster in the first half hour, with numerous crosses and passes going astray, or just missing their intended targets.

At the other end, Kieran Agard managed to turn and get a shot off inside the Blackpool box, however his effort flew wide.

Jordan Thompson heard cries of ‘shoot’ from the North Stand when he received the ball on the edge of the area, yet his attempt failed to trouble Lee Nicholls in the MK Dons goal.

Half-Time: Blackpool 0 MK Dons 1

Things continued in a similar fashion immediately after the interval, as Blackpool struggled to create anything to trouble the opposition.

In an attempt to change that, Jordan Thompson had another effort from distance, this time seeing Lee Nicholls parry it away from the top corner.

Some good link-up play between Joe Nuttall and Armand Gnanduillet then saw the latter go close with an 18-yard strike.

Just when things were improving, MK Dons increased their lead. Curtis Tilt was caught in possession and Jordan Houghton pounced to find the bottom corner.

That goal prompted a double change from The Seasiders. Ryan Hardie and Sean Scannell were the players to come on, replacing Joe Nuttall and Curtis Tilt.

Two minutes later, Scannell almost made a crucial impact, however his low, drilled strike hit the side netting.

Defender Ben Heneghan then came the closest Blackpool had been to scoring in the game when he headed the ball against the bar.

A sucker punch soon followed when David Kasumu put MK Dons three goals up, latching on to a cut back from George Williams.

Ryan Hardie had a chance to reduce that deficit when he nipped in at the near post, only to head wide, while Sam Nombe struck the outside of the post on an MK Dons counter attack.

Nombe was then denied by Alnwick just prior to the final whistle.

Full-Time: Blackpool 0 MK Dons 3

Team: Alnwick, Feeney, Edwards, Heneghan, Tilt (Scannell 68), Husband, Spearing, Thompson, Kaikai, Nuttall (Hardie 68), Gnanduillet
