The Big Preview: Wolves U21s (H)

Seasiders In Trophy Action

5 November 2019

A place in the knockout stages of the Trophy is at stake tonight, as Blackpool host Wolves' Under-21s.

The Seasiders, currently on three points in Group G, know that a victory would see them progress and leapfrog tonight's visitors at the summit. 

A strong performance would also banish a disappointing defeat to Carlisle United last time out in the competition. 

As for Wolves, they have taken five points from two matches, beating Carlisle 4-2 and drawing 2-2 with Morecambe, prior to winning a bonus point in a penalty shoot-out.

Ex-Pool defender Rob Edwards was in charge for those fixtures, however he has now departed his position for a role at the Football Association. Mark Kennedy is now overseeing proceedings in the dugout. 

Team News: 

Blackpool could make a number of changes for the fixture, with the likes of Callum Guy and Joe Nuttall seeking valuable game-time. Curtis Tilt is now available again following suspension, while 'keeper Mark Howard is eligible to play after completing an emergency loan spell with Salford City. 

The Manager's View: 

"It’s another football match that we want to win. I want to get through and get into the next round, then we will turn our attention to Morecambe in the FA Cup on Saturday.

“Regardless of who plays in what competition, you have to play with the intensity we played with on Saturday. If you do that, you’ve got the signs of a successful football club."
