Match Preview: Doncaster Rovers

Carabao Cup Second Round Tie

28 August 2018

Blackpool head to Doncaster Rovers tonight aiming to reach the third round of the Carabao Cup for the first time since 2009.

The Seasiders, who knocked Barnsley out in the previous round, take on a Doncaster side that recorded a 2-1 victory at Scunthorpe to reach this stage of the competition.

Team News: 

Interim manager Terry McPhillips is expected to rotate his squad once again for the competition, with Armand Gnanduillet, Harry Pritchard and Chris Taylor pushing for returns to the starting line-up. 

The hosts will definitely have a change in goal for the tie due to Marko Marosi serving a one-game ban. Ian Lawlor is expected to deputise. Recent loan signing Jermaine Anderson could also make his first start for the club. 

The Ref: 

Anthony Backhouse, who officiated Middlesbrough's tie against Notts County in the first round, will referee tonight's match. 

His last Blackpool fixture came back in April, when The Seasiders beat Bradford City 5-0 at Bloomfield Road. 

Ticket News: 

Tickets are to be purchased on arrival at the stadium and are priced as follows: 

- £10 for Adults
- £5 for Seniors, 18-21-year-olds and 22-24-year-olds
- £1 for 17 and Under
