Preview: Huddersfield Town (H)

Blackpool will be looking to make it back-to-back league wins for the first time this season in Tuesday night's match with Huddersfield Town.

The Terriers visit Bloomfield Road for a 7:45pm kick-off on Tuesday, with the Seasiders in buoyant mood following Saturday's impressive win over Fulham.

That win took Neil Critchley's side out of the relegation zone and up to 19th place heading into matchday seven of the Sky Bet Championship season, with the side looking to build on recent impressive performances.

Huddersfield, meanwhile, have started the season in impressive form, winning three of their opening six league matches, including a 4-0 thrashing of Reading at the end of August. 

Carlos Corberan's side suffered a narrow defeat at Stoke City at the weekend, and will be looking to get back to winning ways themselves on Tuesday evening.

The Manager: Carlos Corberan
38-year-old Carlos Corberan has been in charge at the John Smith’s Stadium since being installed as Head Coach in July 2020. Plucked from Leeds United where he worked as assistant to Marcelo Bielsa, Corberan guided the Terriers to safety in his first season, finishing in 20th place last time out. 

As well as his coaching experience at Leeds United with both the youth team and first-team, the Spaniard has also managed in Cyprus at Ermis and Doxa. He was also part of the Valencia B team as a player, but failed to make a senior appearance for the side.

The Key Man: Josh Koroma
Signed from Leyton Orient in 2019, 22-year-old Josh Koroma has become a key component of Huddersfield’s side. The forward has played all eight of the Terriers matches so far this season, scoring a decisive goal in their 2-1 victory at Sheffield United back in August. The 22-year-old has also spent time on loan at Rotherham United.

Who Comes Out On Top?
Out of 87 meetings between Blackpool and Huddersfield, the Seasiders come out on top with 34 victories compared to Huddersfield's 30. There have been 23 draws between the two sides, the first in February 1911 in a 2-2 stalemate.

We've Met Before:
Ollie Turton could make a return to Bloomfield Road on Tuesday, three months after his transfer to Huddersfield Town. The right-back made 165 appearances for Blackpool across a four year period.

The Club would like to thanks Ameon Building Services Engineering and Jordan's Glass for their support as Match and Ball Sponsors.

The Referee: Thomas Brammall
The man in the middle for the match is Thomas Brammall, who's last match in charge of the Seasiders was in March 2021 in a 1-1 home draw with AFC Wimbledon.
