Pre-Match Brief: Wolves

12 September 2014

Look Ahead To Saturday's Game

Blackpool return to Championship action tomorrow by hosting Wolves at Bloomfield Road for the first time since December 2012.

The Seasiders head into the game looking to pick up their first points of the season, while the visitors look to continue a run of form that has seen them win four of their opening five league games.

Team News

Blackpool midfielder Jacob Mellis is still a couple of weeks away from a return after suffering knee ligament damage last month, while José Miguel Cubero remains on international duty with Costa Rica. The latter is expected to be available to debut for the club on his return after submitting his visa application to the UK embassy in New York this week.

Wolves manager Kenny Jackett is expected to have a fully fit squad to choose from, although Bakary Sako and former Blackpool loan striker Nouha Dicko will be assessed on the back of international commitments with Mali.

Ticket News 

Tickets remain on sale to Blackpool fans with a previous purchase history for the fixture, with pre-booked tickets available for collection from the ticket booth, located just outside the ticket office, from 9am.

No tickets will be available to purchase for Wolves fans on the day, as the full away allocation sold out some weeks ago.

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

Mick Russell will take charge of his first Blackpool game since the 1-1 draw with Brighton in April. He will be assisted by Mark Dwyer and Paul Graham, with Paul Marsden confirmed as the fourth official.


The third edition of this season's programme will be on sale around the ground and from the club shop prior to kick-off, priced at £3.

Tomasz Cywka, John Lundstram, John Curtis, Danny Batth and Matt Murray all feature, as do the usual notes from the manager and Tony McMahon.

Betting Odds

Blackpool are priced at 7/2 with Sky Bet to secure victory, with Wolves available at 4/5. Striker Ishmael Miller can be backed at 11/4 to score at anytime for The Seasiders.
