Match Preview: Fleetwood Town (H)

Squad In Good Shape Ahead of Local Affair

13 April 2018

Fixture | Blackpool vs Fleetwood Town – Date | Saturday 14 April – Venue | Bloomfield Road

Blackpool will aim to cap off a strong week in Sky Bet League One when hosting Fleetwood Town tomorrow, kick-off 3pm. 

The Seasiders' third consecutive home fixture offers an opportunity to make it nine points from nine and potentially move back in to the top half of the table. 

The visitors, some nine miles down the road, are also in good form, with manager John Sheridan having an immediate impact since his appointment in February. 

Last Time Out: 

Blackpool made it back-to-back home victories with a 3-0 win against Northampton Town on Tuesday night. Goals from Armand Gnanduillet, Sean Longstaff and Jimmy Ryan took The Seasiders' goal tally to eight in two games, with the defence also keeping two cleen sheets in that time. 

A last-gasp goal from Conor McAleny ensured that Fleetwood Town bounced back with a 1-0 win at Oxford United. It was the Cod Army's fifth victory in six matches.  

Team News: 

Kelvin Mellor could return to the Blackpool squad after missing the last eight matches with ankle ligament damage. Kyle Vassell is also aiming to be back in action, having sat out the midweek victory against Northampton Town. 

The visitors are also in good shape for the fixture, with John Sheridan having the majority of his squad available for selection. 

Betting Odds: 

Blackpool Win - 19/20
Draw - 23/10
Fleetwood Town Win - 3/1
