Match Preview: Shrewsbury Town

Seasiders Back On The Road

17 August 2018

Blackpool's second away fixture of the season sees the team face Shrewsbury Town at Montgomery Waters Meadow tomorrow (Saturday).

Both sides go into the game in search of their first three points of the season, though The Seasiders are buoyed by a midweek victory against Barnsley in the Carabao Cup. 

Interim manager Terry McPhillips will once again oversee things for Blackpool, while the hosts have former Macclesfield Town manager John Askey in the dugout this season. 

Team News: 

Competition for places has heightened in the Blackpool squad since Tuesday, with the eight changes for the Barnsley match impressing in tangerine. Donervon Daniels and Curtis Tilt both came through their run-outs unscathed, while Mark Cullen will hope to retain his place in the starting line-up. 

James Bolton, Ollie Norwood and Aaron Amadi-Holloway have all been labelled doubts for Shrewsbury, though Luke Hendrie could be involved for the first time this season. 

The Ref: 

Ollie Yates will officiate the match between the two sides, having last taken charge of a Blackpool match in March. He has refereed two games so far this season and handed out seven yellow cards.

Blackpool supporters can pay on the day (cash only) from the D M Recruitment Stand.
