Match Preview: Burton Albion (A)

Trip To the Pirelli Stadium For Seasiders

15 March 2019

Unbeaten in three matches, Blackpool head to Burton Albion this weekend aiming to retain hopes of a play-off push

The Seasiders, who recorded a 3-0 victory against The Brewers back in November, have only ever visited the Pirelli Stadium once before, which came in January 2016. 

Burton, managed by Nigel Clough, lost out to Charlton Athletic in midweek and know that victory will close the gap between themselves and Blackpool to three points. 

Team News: 

Terry McPhillips' side are beset by a number of injury problems in defence for the fixture, with Donervon Daniels (thigh) and Curtis Tilt (hip) joining Ollie Turton (hamstring) on the sidelines. Fortunately, Marc Bola is fit to return, while Michael Nottingham is set to start after making an impact off the bench against Doncaster Rovers. 

The hosts, unchanged for their last three matches, coudl recall top scorer Liam Boyce to their starting line-up. 

The Manager's View:  

The Ref: 

Antony Backhouse has been confirmed to officiate the fixture between the two teams, having last refereed Blackpool at home to Barnsley in December. 

He was also the man in the middle when The Seasiders beat AFC Wimbledon and Doncaster Rovers in the Carabao Cup earlier this season. 


Supporters still intending to travel can purchase tickets to stand or sit directly from the stadium on arrival. 

Those planning to stand on the terrace can pay cash on the turnstiles, while tickets for those wanting to sit can be purchased from the ticket windows in the main stand. 

Please note: a £2 increase applies to previously advertised prices.
