Match Preview: Blackburn Rovers (A)

Lancashire Derby At Ewood Park

9 March 2018

Fixture | Blackburn Rovers vs Blackpool – Date | Saturday 10 March – Venue | Ewood Park

There's a Lancashire derby on the horizon tomorrow, as Blackpool face league leaders Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park. 

The Seasiders make the journey on the M65 unbeaten in their last five outings, while the hosts are unbeaten in six. 

Last Time Out: 

Blackpool have had to wait a fortnight for a fixture to come round, with last weekend's match against Northampton Town postponed due to a frozen pitch. 

Prior to that, the team recorded an impressive 2-0 victory at Portsmouth to make it back-to-back wins away from home. 

Blackburn, meanwhile, were pegged back in a top of the table clash against Wigan Athletic at Ewood Park. Strikes from Adam Armstrong and Elliott Bennett were cancelled out by Michael Jacobs and Max Power in the 2-2 draw.

Team News: 

Sean Longstaff and Callum Cooke could both come back into contention for Blackpool, having recently missed out due to hip and heel injuries, respectively. The match comes too soon for Mark Cullen, however. 

Rovers are more or less at full strength for the fixture, though the fitness of Ryan Nyambe will be assessed.
