The Big Preview: Rochdale (A)

Seasiders Head To Spotland

23 August 2019

A strong away following is set to back Blackpool at Rochdale tomorrow, as the Seasiders aim to maintain an unbeaten start to the league season.

Pool head to Spotland sitting top of the Sky Bet League One table, having picked up 10 points from a possible 12 in the division. 

Rochdale will prove formidable opposition though, with their first defeat of the campaign coming at home to Sunderland in midweek. 

Team News: 

James Husband returns from a three-match suspension for Blackpool, though late decisions will be made on Nathan Delfouneso, Matty Virtue and Joe Nuttall. 

The hosts welcome ex-Pool skipper Jimmy Ryan back in their squad following a three-game ban. 

Previous Meeting: 

It was Rochdale who won the previous encounter at Spotland with a 2-1 victory on Boxing Day 2018. The Seasiders played an hour of the game with 10 men following the dismissal of Jordan Thompson. 

The Manager's Thoughts: 

The Referee: 

Carl Boyeson will officiate the match between the two teams. He refereed two Blackpool games last season - a 1-1 draw at Sunderland and 2-2 draw at Peterborough United. 


Supporters without tickets for the match must now pay on the day, with the Blackpool ticket office selling out its initial allocation of 1,500. 

An additional 1,900 tickets will be available to purchase at Spotland, however a £3 price increase applies. 

Tickets will therefore cost: 

  • £25 for Adults
  • £19 for Seniors, 21 & Under and Wheelchair Users
  • £8 for 16 & Under
