Match Preview: Accrington Stanley (H)

Seasiders Welcome Lancashire Neighbours

24 August 2018

Blackpool will aim to make it back-to-back victories when they host fellow Lancashire side Accrington Stanley tomorrow (Saturday).

The Seasiders got their league campaign firmly up and running with a 2-0 win against Coventry City in midweek, while the visitors made it seven points from a possible 12 with a 3-2 victory at Oxford United. 

Team News: 

Interim manager Terry McPhillips must once again to decide whether to rotate his squad, having made seven changes to the team in midweek. New signing Liam Feeney could come into contention for a place in the 18, while Jimmy Ryan and Ryan McLaughlin have started training this week. 

Michael Ihiekwe has joined Accrington on loan from Rotherham United and could be in line for a debut.

The Ref: 

Regular Premier League official Lee Mason will take charge of the fixture, having last refereed a Blackpool game in 2013.
