The Big Preview: Morecambe (H)

Seasiders In Trophy Action

3 September 2019

Blackpool's Trophy campaign gets underway at Bloomfield Road tonight, with the Seasiders hosting Morecambe.

The fixture is the first of three in Group G and offers manager Simon Grayson the opportunity to rotate his squad and give some players valuable minutes on the pitch. 

League Two Morecambe arrive at Bloomfield Road without a victory in their last three games.  

Team News: 

Rocky Bushiri and Jordan Thompson both miss out on the game due to international commitments, while Nathan Delfouneso remains sidelined with a hamstring problem. Matty Virtue is expected to step up his return from injury following a brief appearance against Portsmouth on the weekend. 

The Referee: 

Marc Edwards will referee the game between the two teams, having been promoted to the list of EFL officials this season. He has taken charge of three League Two fixtures so far. 

The Rules: 

During the group stage, teams are awarded three points for a win and one for a draw. If a match ends in a draw, then a penalty shoot-out also takes place for a bonus point. 


Tickets for tonight's match, which kicks-off at 7.30pm, are on sale until kick-off, priced at: 

- £5 for Adults
