The League’s Top Scorers Visit Bloomfield Road This Weekend

1 November 2019

Blackpool welcome in-form Peterborough United to Bloomfield Road on Saturday, with the Seasiders looking to inflict Posh’s first defeat since mid-September.

The visitors come into matchday 16 in third place, just two points off top of the table Ipswich Town.

Blackpool currently sit in ninth position – three points outside the play-off places and six behind Saturday’s opponents.

Last Three Results:

  • 26 October – Peterborough United 2-2 Coventry City
  • 23 October – Peterborough United 4-0 Accrington Stanley
  • 19 October – Gillingham 1-2 Peterborough United

Star Man: Marcus Maddison

Maddison is one of a front three who have been scoring goals for fun so far this season. The trio of Maddison, Mo Eisa and Ivan Toney have scored an incredible 30 goals between them so far, with Maddison scoring eight in all competitions.

The 26-year-old also has six assists to his name, which makes him an undeniable threat in front of goal as well as in the wide areas.

Last Time Out: Blackpool 0-1 Peterborough United

Posh’s last visit to Bloomfield Road was just seven months ago, in a 1-0 defeat for the Seasiders.

Marcus Maddison’s goal just before half-time proved all the difference, as the defeat all but ended Blackpool’s hopes of reaching the play-offs that season.
