Match Preview: Bristol Rovers (H)

Latest Teams News and Betting Odds Ahead of Fixture

12 January 2018

Fixture | Blackpool vs Bristol Rovers – Date | Saturday 13 January – Venue | Bloomfield Road

Blackpool's first home match of 2018 sees Bristol Rovers visit Bloomfield Road tomorrow afternoon. 

The two teams head into the match level on 32 points in the table, though Rovers do have a game in hand. 

Last Time Out: 

A dominant display at Oxford United went without reward for The Seasiders last weekend, as a late goal from Jon Obika secured the three points for The U's. 

Bristol Rovers, meanwhile, have had something of a break from the action, with their last fixture being a 2-1 victory against Portsmouth on New Year's Day. 

Team News: 

Goalkeeper Joe Lumley is pushing to make his home debut for the club, having performed well on his first outing at Shrewsbury in midweek. The likes of Clark Robertson, Jay Spearing and Sean Longstaff are all set to return to the starting line-up, though Curtis Tilt misses out due to suspension. Andy Taylor, Mark Cullen, Kyle Vassell and Dolly Menga remain sidelined. 

The visitors could give a debut to forward Bernard Mensah, who joined the club from Aldershot Town yesterday. Dan Leadbitter and Tom Broadbent are doubts with hamstring problems. Top scorer Billy Bodin recently completed a move to Preston.

Blackpool Win - 23/23
Draw - 5/2
