Match Preview: Bristol Rovers

Seasiders Back In Action At Bloomfield Road

2 November 2018

Blackpool's fixture of Remembrance takes place tomorrow, when Bristol Rovers travel to Bloomfield Road.

The two teams, with the captains carrying poppy wreaths, will be led out onto the pitch by military veterans, with a minute's silence and the Last Post to be played prior to kick-off. 

During the period of silence, the club will also remember the five people who tragically lost their lives in the helicopter crash outside Leicester City's stadium last Saturday. 

Form Guide: 

Blackpool head into the game having put in a strong display at Arsenal in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday, though The Seasiders will be determined to get back to winning ways in the league. An 11-match unbeaten run in Sky Bet League One was brought to an end last time out. 

Bristol Rovers, without a goal in five matches away from home, lost out narrowly to Barnsley last weekend. Prior to that the visitors recorded a 2-0 victory at home to AFC Wimbledon and drew with Oxford United. 

Team News: 

Curtis Tilt returns from suspension for the game, however Paudie O'Connor now joins Armand Gnanduillet in serving a three-match ban. A late decision will be made on the availability of Donervon Daniels. 

Bristol Rovers have no fresh injury concerns for the fixture. Ed Upson and Kyle Bennett are both pushing for recalls to the side. 

The Ref: 

Trevor Kettle will referee his first Blackpool fixture since March, when The Seasiders secured a late victory against Charlton Athletic. 

The official, who has overseen 15 matches so far this season, will be assisted by Chris Isherwood and Joe Simpson. 

Fourth official will be Duncan Street.
