Blackpool Set For Final Home Game of the Season

27 April 2018

Fixture | Blackpool vs Shrewsbury Town – Date | Saturday 28 April – Venue | Bloomfield Road

Blackpool will aim to make it five consecutive victories for the first time since 2007 when they host Shrewsbury Town tomorrow. 

The Seasiders head into their final home match of the campaign in fine form, having scored 13 goals and kept three clean sheets in their last four games. 

Last Time Out: 

Kyle Vassell, Nathan Delfouneso and Kelvin Mellor were all on target last weekend, as Blackpool recorded a 3-0 win at Gillingham.

Shrewsbury, meanwhile, came back from behind in midweek to beat Peterborough United 3-1. 

Team News: 

Christoffer Mafoumbi is expected to start between the sticks following Joe Lumley's return to QPR earlier this week. Kelvin Mellor and Jim McAlister will be pushing for further minutes, having made comebacks from injury at Gillingham. 

The visitors, confirmed to finish third and be in the play-offs, could utilise their full squad in preparation for their continued promotion push.

Blackpool Win - 21/20
Draw - 11/5
