Match Preview: Coventry City (A)

Seasiders Face Sky Blues

25 January 2019

Blackpool will look to record their first ever victory at Coventry City's Ricoh Arena on Saturday.

The Seasiders are yet to come away from the venue with all three points, though have drawn three of five fixtures played at the home of the Sky Blues. 

Pool head to the West Midlands in good spirits, having taken four points from a possible six in recent weeks. 

Coventry sit level on points in the Sky Bet League One table and will be aiming to end a run of three games without victory. 

Team News: 

New signing Elias Sørensen is set to be part of the 18-man squad following his arrival from Newcastle United, while Ollie Turton makes a welcome return after being given an extra week to recover from injury. The game will probably come a little too soon for Mark Howard and Joe Dodoo, though. 

The Manager's View: 

The Ref:

Eddie Ilderton will oversee the fixture between the two sides, having initially been down to officiate last weekend's match at home to Shrewsbury Town. 

Hailing from the North East, he has refereed three games so far this season, showing 12 yellow cards.

Therefore, tickets will now cost: 

- £25 for Adults
- £18 for Seniors (60+)
- £18 for Young Adults (18-21)
