Match Preview: Oxford United (A)

Seasiders Back On The Road

14 December 2018

Blackpool will aim to keep the pressure on Sky Bet League One's top six when facing Oxford United tomorrow.

Victory against Charlton Athletic last weekend once again highlighted The Seasiders' potential to break into the play-off positions, with just a point separating them from sixth-placed Barnsley. 

Oxford United, meanwhile, will look to continue their surge up the table after a slow start to the campaign. The U's have taken four points from a possible six recently. 

Team News: 

Skipper Jay Spearing looks set to return to the Blackpool squad after missing out due to an ankle injury against Charlton. A late check will be made on Curtis Tilt's availability though, with the defender forced off against The Addicks with a hip problem. Striker Mark Cullen is set to be sidelined for six weeks with a stress fracture. 

The hosts could welcome former Pool player Tony McMahon back for the fixture following time out with a cracked rib. Ricky Holmes is also available for selection.
