The Big Preview: Macclesfield Town

Seasiders In Cup Action

13 August 2019

Blackpool will aim to maintain their winning start to the season when hosting Macclesfield Town in the Carabao Cup tonight, kick-off 7.45pm.

The Seasiders take a short break from Sky Bet League One action following back-to-back victories against Bristol Rovers and Southend United. 

Meanwhile, Macclesfield Town arrive at Bloomfield Road having recorded their first win of the season on Saturday, which came against Leyton Orient. 

Team News: 

Manager Simon Grayson has indicated that he won't be making wholesale changes to his side, though a couple of players will be given the opportunity to impress. One player who definitely misses out is left-back James Husband, who serves the first of a three match suspension. 

Previous Meeting: 

Both teams came up against each other in the group stage of the EFL Trophy last season, drawing 3-3 at Moss Rose. The hosts then claimed a bonus point by winning a penalty shoot-out. 

The Manager's Thoughts: 

The Referee: 

Martin Coy has been confirmed to referee his first game of the campaign tonight. 

The official mostly officiated in Sky Bet Leagues One and Two last season, with his last Blackpool fixture coming at Scunthorpe on Good Friday. 


Match tickets will be on sale at the ticket office right up until kick-off. 

Tickets for the fixture are priced at: 

  • £10 for Adults
  • £8 for Seniors
  • £5 for Under-16s
