Match Preview: Doncaster Rovers (H)

Good Friday Football At Bloomfield Road

29 March 2018

Fixture | Blackpool vs Doncaster Rovers – Date | Good Friday (30 March) – Venue | Bloomfield Road

The Easter weekend kicks-off with Blackpool hosting Doncaster Rovers at Bloomfield Road tomorrow, kick-off 3pm. 

Previous encounters between the two sides have always been entertaining, with the clash at The Keepmoat Stadium earlier this season ending 3-3. 

Last Time Out:

Blackpool's third clean sheet in four away games came in a goal-less draw at MK Dons last weekend, as The Seasiders extended their unbeaten run to three matches. 

Doncaster's last game came in front of the Sky cameras, with a brace from John Marquis giving Rovers a 2-0 victory. 

Team News: 

Kelvin Mellor, Jim McAlister and Mark Cullen remain on the sidelines, though all three are making progress in their efforts to return to the squad. Midfielder Sean Longstaff will be hoping to start, having made an appearance off the bench against MK Dons. 

Andy Butler and Andy Boyle are back training with Doncaster, while Alfie Beestin is pushing for a return to the starting line-up. Long-term absentees Danny Andrew and Tom Anderson miss out. 

Betting Odds: 

Blackpool Win - 13/10
Draw - 21/10
Doncaster Rovers Win - 23/10
