Match Preview: Walsall (H)

Seasiders Host The Saddlers

8 February 2019

Blackpool make a welcome return to action by hosting Walsall at Bloomfield Road tomorrow.

The Seasiders, who saw last Saturday's fixture at Accrington postponed, will be aiming to re-establish the momentum that has seen them go unbeaten for four matches. 

The visitors, meanwhile, arrive looking to halt a run of two straight defeats.

Team News: 

Matty Virtue and Antony Evans are both in contention to make debuts for Blackpool, while Mark Howard and Joe Dodoo are available again following injury. Captain Jay Spearing is expected to be out for a month with a knee problem. 

Walsall will be without their skipper Adam Chambers, who continues to recover from a broken foot that has kept him sidelined. Dan Scarr is expected to retain his place in defence, having made his debut against Rochdale last weekend. 

The Manager's View: 

The Ref:
