Pre-Match Brief: Rotherham

27 December 2014

Latest Information Ahead of Fixture

Blackpool host Rotherham United in their final fixture of 2014 tomorrow, with The Seasiders looking to bounce back from defeat at Sheffield Wednesday.

Having now faced every side in the division this season, Lee Clark's team meet Steve Evans' side for the second time inside a month.

Team News

Ishmael Miller will miss out due to suspension following his dismissal at Hillsborough, while Steven Davies (neck) and Darren O'Dea (hamstring) are major doubts. Donervon Daniels is out with a hamstring problem. Kevin Foley and Tom Kennedy could both be in line for recalls.

Kirk Broadfoot is expected to miss out on a return to Bloomfield Road with Rotherham as he continues his recovery from a shoulder problem.

Ticket News 

Tickets remain on sale to both sets of supporters for the match, with pre-booked tickets available for collection from the ticket booth, located just outside the ticket office, from 11am.

Rotherham fans still intending to travel can purchase tickets for the away end at the away ticket booth from 1.30pm. 

Matchday tickets are priced as follows:

£25 for Adults
£20 for Seniors
£17 for 16-U19
£15 for Under-16s

Please note: a £5 discount applies to the price of a members ticket and tickets in the East Stand are £1 cheaper than advertised.

Match Officials

Scott Duncan will officiate the game between the two teams. His last match in charge of The Seasiders came in September, when the team lost out narrowly to Watford at Bloomfield Road. He will be assisted by Anthony Backhouse and Ryan Johnson, with David Webb on fourth official duties.


Supporters travelling to the game from outside of Blackpool will be required to follow diversions from the end of the M55 to the ground due to the continued closure of Yeadon Way. 

Blackpool hasn't been affected by the snow in surrounding areas, however routes outside of the town will still need to be planned carefully.


The latest edition of this season's programme features interviews with Tom Kennedy, Ishmael Miller, Marc Joseph and Adam Collin. 

Copies, which are priced at £3, are available to purchase from the club shop or various sellers around the ground prior to kick-off.

Family Room

The family room, located within The Seasiders' Bar, will once again be open from 12pm tomorrow until kick-off. Admission is free for families with match tickets, however under-16s must be accompanied by an adult. 

Betting Odds

Blackpool can be backed at odds of 21/10 with Sky Bet to beat Rotherham tomorrow, with the visitors available at 5/4.

Nathan Delfouneso is priced at 7/1 to open the scoring, with Chris Eagles 7/2 to score at anytime for The Seasiders.
