Fixture | Accrington Stanley vs Blackpool – Date | 3 October 2017 – Venue | Wham Stadium
Blackpool's second Checkatrade Trophy fixture in Northern Group B takes place away to Accrington Stanley tonight, kick-off 7.30pm.
The match will be The Seasiders' last one for 11 days, with a break from league action this weekend due to the Blackburn Rovers game being rearranged.
Last Time Out:
Fin Sinclair-Smith marked his Blackpool debut with a goal in the club's previous Checkatrade Trophy fixture against Wigan Athletic.
The match ended 1-1 at Bloomfield Road, though the visitors picked up a bonus point after winning a penalty shoot-out.
Accrington, meanwhile, played out a five-goal thriller against Middlesbrough.
A goal from substitute from Liam Nolan in the 92nd minute secured a 3-2 victory for Stanley.
Manager Gary Bowyer is expected to utilise his full squad again for this latest Checkatrade Trophy match.
New rules this season permit qualifying players named in the starting line-up to have made 40 or more first-team appearances in their career.
That means the likes of Andy Taylor and Max Clayton will be given valuable game-time.
Accrington are also expected to make changes to their side, with Mekhi McLeod and Erico Sousa set to feature again.
Match Betting Odds:
Accrington Win - 7/5
Draw - 5/2
Blackpool Win - 9/5
