Blackpool Back On The Road

Fixture| Swindon Town vs Blackpool
Date| 20 February 2016
Venue| The County Ground

Preview
Blackpool are on the road for the first time in nearly a month and they’ll be looking to take their solid home form with them to Swindon Town on Saturday.

Pool have now completed a run of four straight home games and will look to add to their two League One victories away from Bloomfield Road.

On offer is a second double of the season after Neil McDonald’s men beat Swindon back in October and they’re facing a side yet to keep a clean sheet at home this campaign. 

The Opposition
The Robins sit comfortably in mid-table, five points above The Seasiders, and were boosted by a handsome victory at Colchester United last weekend.

Luke Williams’ men hit the bottom club for four and ended a run of four matches without a victory in the process. 

This week Swindon brought in Jamie Sendles-White until the end of the season after his release from Hamilton and he could make his debut on Saturday.

Team News
McDonald will leave his goalkeeper decision until the last minute, with Colin Doyle’s fitness still in the balance, after he missed the recent Shrewsbury Town and Oldham Athletic fixtures.

Otherwise, it’s only Lloyd Jones and Henry Cameron who miss out for The Seasiders.

As for Swindon, Yaser Kasim (knee) and Fabien Robert (nerve) look likely to sit out, but Brando Ormonde-Ottewill could return from a hamstring injury. 

Pre-Match Talk
McDonald: “We’re against a team who are on the back of a good away win. They’re a very good football team and keep possession of the ball. Sometimes they play in the wrong areas so hopefully we can catch them out.” 

New signing Sendles-White said: “It’s a great feeling to finally be signed. It has been a stressful couple of weeks trying to get sorted since leaving Hamilton. But now I am here I can just get my head down and work hard and try and impress.”
