Match Preview: Oldham Athletic (A)

Seasiders Head To Boundary Park For Bank Holiday Monday Fixture

1 April 2018

Fixture | Oldham Athletic vs Blackpool – Date | Monday 2 April – Venue | Boundary Park

A quick opportunity presents itself for Blackpool to bounce back in Sky Bet League One when The Seasiders travel to Oldham Athletic tomorrow (Monday).

The match is one of seven remaining for Pool who, like the opposition, are aiming to secure divisional safety. 

Last Time Out: 

Two goals from Tommy Rowe helped Doncaster Rovers record a 2-1 victory at Bloomfield Road on Good Friday. The defeat was Blackpool's first at home in 2018 and rendered Colin Daniel's fourth goal of the season a consolation.

Oldham, managed by former Pool midfielder Richie Wellens, tasted defeat at Wigan Athletic, with goals from Will Grigg, James Vaughan and Nick Powell sealing a 3-0 win for the hosts. 

Team News: 

Blackpool look set to welcome back Kyle Vassell for the fixture at Boundary Park, with the nine-goal forward having missed out on Friday with a knock. Kelvin Mellor (ankle ligament damage) remains on the sidelines, though. 

Anthony Gerrard is pushing for a return to the Oldham side after a calf problem ruled him out of action against Wigan. Fellow defender Cameron Dummigan (groin) is out though. 

Betting Odds: 

Oldham Athletic Win - 13/10
Draw - 23/10
Blackpool Win - 21/10
