Match Preview: Walsall

Seasiders Return To League Action

31 August 2018

Blackpool go in search of their second league victory of the season at Walsall tomorrow.

Unbeaten in five, The Seasiders will be aiming to build up further momentum against a Walsall side that currently sits fourth in the division. 

Team News: 

A few changes are once again expected following the team's midweek Cup clash at Doncaster Rovers. Ollie Turton is likely to return to the starting line-up, while Ryan McLaughlin is close to making his first appearance of the campaign. Jimmy Ryan and Donervon Daniels are back training, though unlikely to be involved just yet.

The Saddlers, who exited the Carabao Cup to Macclesfield Town on Tuesday night, will also shuffle their pack for the fixture, with Nicky Devlin, Josh Ginnelly, Zeli Ismail and ex-Pool man Isaiah Osbourne set to feature. 

The Ref: 

Lee Swabey will officiate his fifth game of the season on Saturday. He last refereed a Blackpool match in March 2016, which came at Millwall.
