Match Preview: Fleetwood Town (A)

Latest Team News and Betting Odds Ahead of Fylde Coast Clash

24 November 2017

Fixture | Fleetwood Town vs Blackpool – Date | 25 November 2017 – Venue | Highbury Stadium

Blackpool make their shortest trip of the season tomorrow, as they face Fylde Coast neighbours Fleetwood Town at Highbury. 

Meeting for the first time since April 2016, the two sides head into the game level on 26 points in the Sky Bet League One table. 

More than 950 supporters will be in attendance cheering The Seasiders on. 

Last Time Out: 

A last-minute goal from Tom Eaves denied Blackpool all three points against Gillingham in midweek. The former Yeovil Town man headed in at the back post to cancel out a first-half opener from Kyle Vassell. 

Fleetwood, meanwhile, fell to late strikes away at Walsall, with The Saddlers scoring in the 89th and 90th minute to secure a 4-2 victory. 

Team News: 

Blackpool have no fresh injury concerns ahead of the fixture, with Jim McAlister, Clark Robertson and Mark Cullen the only players unavailable. Captain Jimmy Ryan will be pushing for a start against his former club having recently returned from to the squad.  

Uwe Rosler's side will be without ex-Blackpool man Bobby Grant due to injury, as well as Conor McAleny. Lewie Coyle does return from suspension, however.

Fleetwood Win - 7/5
