The Big Preview: Coventry City (A)

Two Unbeaten Records Go Head-To-Head

6 September 2019

It's third versus fourth in Sky Bet League One tomorrow, as Blackpool face Coventry City at St Andrew's.

Both sides head into the game unbeaten so far this season and level on 12 points in the table, though the Seasiders will be looking to end a run of three consecutive draws. 

Team News: 

Nathan Delfouneso looks set to provide a timely boost by returning from the hamstring injury that has kept him sidelined for the last three matches, while a number of other players are pushing for league starts after performing well in the Trophy on Tuesday night. Jordan Thompson and Rocky Bushiri miss out due to international commitments. 

Coventry's deadline day signings Tennai Watson and Liam Walsh could make their first appearances for Mark Robins' side, however Jamie Allen and Callum O'Hare are expected to miss out. 

Previous Meeting: 

Nathan Delfouneso and Armand Gnanduillet were both on target in a 2-0 victory when the two teams last met, which was in January at the Ricoh Arena. That result ensured that the Seasiders completed the league double against the hosts. 

The Manager's Thoughts: 

The Referee:

Paul Marsden will have the whistle for the match, having refereed five games already this season. 

This will be the first ever Blackpool game he has officiated, though. 


More than 500 advance tickets for the match were snapped up by Blackpool fans, though supporters can still pay on the day. 

Tickets remain priced at: 

  • £20 for Adults
  • £15 for Seniors (60+)
  • £15 for Young Adults (18-21), NUS and Armed Forces
  • £10 for Under-18s

Payment is cash only on the away turnstiles.
