The Big Preview: Lincoln City (H)

Friday Night Under The Lights

27 September 2019

Blackpool host Lincoln City under the lights tonight, as the two teams meet for the first time in 18 years.

The Seasiders head into the game having taken four points from consecutive away fixtures, though the focus will be on getting back to winning ways at Bloomfield Road. 

The visitors, meanwhile, have a new manager in the dugout, with former Pool boss Michael Appleton taking charge of the Imps. He will be aiming to make an instant impact, having watched a 6-0 defeat to Oxford from the stands last weekend. 

Team News: 

Top scorer Armand Gnanduillet could be set to return for Blackpool after returning to training this week, though one or two other players face late checks. Nathan Delfouneso (hamstring) continues to miss out. 

Lincoln will make a late decision on the availability of Michael Bostwick, who has missed the last two matches due to injury. On-loan midfielder Jake Hesketh is another who could potentially be involved. 

The Manager's View: 

Previous Meeting: 

Goals from John Murphy and Danny Shittu helped Blackpool record a 2-0 victory in the last meeting at Bloomfield Road, which came in February 2001. 

The Referee: 

Ollie Yates will oversee proceedings tonight. He has refereed seven matches so far this season and was last at Bloomfield Road on the final day of last season.
