Pre-Match Brief: Norwich City

26 September 2014

Look Ahead To The Big Match

Blackpool will host Norwich City at Bloomfield Road for the first time since March 2009 tomorrow.

The Seasiders will hope for a repeat result from that day - goals from Charlie Adam and Brett Ormerod helped the team to a 2-0 win - as the players look to pick up their first three points of the season.  

Team News

José Miguel Cubero could make his debut for Blackpool after recovering from a knock on his knee, while Jacob Mellis and Andrea Orlandi are also available again following injury. Peter Clarke is unlikely to have recovered sufficiently from illness in time for the fixture, leaving Donervon Daniels as the only recognised centre-half in the squad. Jeffrey Rentmeister is ruled out with an ankle problem sustained at Brighton.

Norwich have a fully-fit squad to choose from after Gary Hooper and Jonny Howson recently stepped up comebacks. Former Blackpool midfielder Wes Hoolahan is expected to start for the visitors.

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 9am.

1,500 fans of The Canaries have already purchased tickets, with the remaining allocation available to purchase from 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

Andre Marriner will officiate the game between Blackpool and Norwich City tomorrow. His last match in charge of The Seasiders was an FA Cup tie against Fulham in 2013. He will be assisted by Marc Perry and Edward Smart, with Peter Bankes on fourth official duties.


The fifth edition of this season's programme will feature interviews with Joe Lewis, Ishmael Miller, Adrian Forbes, Brian Rose and Rob Edwards.

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

Betting Odds

Blackpool can be backed at odds of 4/1 with Sky Bet to pick up all three points against Norwich, with the visitors available at 7/10.  

Ishmael Miller is priced at 9/1 to open the scoring and 3/1 to score at anytime for The Seasiders.
