Pre-Match Brief: Sheffield Wednesday

6 March 2015

Latest Information Ahead of Fixture

Blackpool will aim to build on an encouraging midweek performance when Sheffield Wednesday arrive at Bloomfield Road tomorrow.

Manager Lee Clark will continue to look towards the future in terms of his team selection.   

Team News

Miles Addison is expected to retain his place in the side following an impressive debut at St Andrew's, but Andrea Orlandi is still a week away from a return to action. Charles Dunne sits out the final game of a three-match suspension, while Gary Madine misses out due to the terms of his loan agreement. Henry Cameron (ankle), Mark Waddington (foot) and Niall Maher (groin) are also sidelined.

Sheffield Wednesday will be without Jose Semedo and Kamil Zayatte following injuries sustained against Blackburn. Chris Maguire and Stevie May will both push for starts.

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 11am.

All tickets for the Sheffield Wednesday end sold out some weeks ago, therefore no tickets will be available on the day for away supporters.  

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

Graham Scott will officiate the game between the two teams, having last refereed at Bloomfield Road in December 2012. He will be assisted by Anthony Backhouse and Michael Denton, with Peter Bankes on fourth official duties.

Travel

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. 

Programme

Dom Telford stars on the cover of the latest edition of the Blackpool FC programme, with the striker discussing his rise through the youth team inside.

Andrea Orlandi discusses his efforts to return from injury, while Mickey Burns looks back on his time as a Seasider. 

Copies, which are priced at £3, are available to purchase from the club shop or from 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. Two squad players will be on hand to sign autographs from 2pm.

Blackpool are priced at 7/2 with Sky Bet to pick up all three points against Sheffield Wednesday, with the visitors available at odds of 17/20.

Dom Telford can be backed at odds of 9/1 to open the scoring, with Jamie O'Hara at odds of 5/1 to score at anytime in the 90 minutes.
