Match Preview: Rochdale (H)

All The Latest Information Ahead of Tonight's Fixture

26 September 2017

Fixture | Blackpool vs Rochdale – Date | 26 September 2017 – Venue | Bloomfield Road

Blackpool return to action at Bloomfield Road this evening by hosting Rochdale for the first time in two years, kick-off 7.45pm.

The Seasiders remain unbeaten on home soil so far this season, having won four league games from four. 

Last Time Out: 

A 3-1 defeat at Bristol Rovers brought Blackpool's seven-match unbeaten run to an end on Saturday. The result was a disappointing one for the side, with manager Gary Bowyer quickly challenging his players to react in the right manner.

Rochdale, meanwhile, won their second league game of the season with a 3-0 victory against Gillingham. Dale are yet to win on the road in the league, though have done so in the Carabao Cup and Checkatrade Trophy.

Team News:

Gary Bowyer has already hinted at freshening things up for tonight's match, given the quick turnaround. The likes of Sessi D'Almeida and Nathan Delfouneso could come into contention for a start, however Mark Cullen (hamstring), Armand Gnanduillet (thigh) and Jim McAlister (fractured tibia) remain out.

Keith Hill may also shuffle his pack for the match, with Matt Done a candidate to return to the starting line-up. Keith Keane requires surgery on an injury problem and won't be available for a while.

Match Betting Odds:

Blackpool Win 13/10
Draw 5/2
Rochdale Win 19/10
