Match Preview: Coventry City

Seasiders Host Sky Blues

21 August 2018

Blackpool welcome two newly-promoted sides to Bloomfield Road this week, starting with Coventry City this evening.

The Sky Blues arrive in town having secured their first three points of the season on Saturday, while The Seasiders picked up their second consecutive point on the road. 

Team News: 

Interim manager Terry McPhillips could rotate his squad for the match, with strikers Mark Cullen and Joe Dodoo pushing for starts. The game still comes too soon for Ryan McLaughlin and Jimmy Ryan, though.

Coventry's Tom Bayliss is expected to shake off a thigh problem in time to face Blackpool, though Jodi Jones misses out after making an injury return for the under-23s yesterday. 

The Ref: 

Robert Lewis will referee his fourth fixture of the season this evening, having taken charge of two Sky Bet League Two matches and a game in the Carabao Cup so far. 

You have to go back to December 2015 for the last Blackpool fixture he officiated, which came against Peterborough United in a game Pool won 2-0.
