Fleetwood Town v Blackpool Match Preview & Best Odds

Kick-off: 7.45pm UK Time, Wednesday 1st November 2023

 

Blackpool will be aiming to haul themselves further up the League One table tonight while Fleetwood Town’s aim will be to drag themselves clear of the relegation zone.

Blackpool saw their four-game unbeaten run come to an end on Saturday afternoon when they lost 4-2 at home to promotion hopefuls Peterborough United, however this was just the Seasiders’ second league defeat of the season and as things stand, Neil Critchley’s men sit in eighth position in the League One table with a game-in-hand over sixth-placed Stevenage. Critchley didn’t make the anticipated instant impact on his return to Bloomfield Road but it’s fair to say that on the whole, the side are starting to look more settled.

Having been dismissed by Scottish Premiership side Hibernian, Lee Johnson took charge at Fleetwood Town but thus far he has failed to make an impact, the side winning just three of their nine matches since he took the reins. Having earned a last gasp 2-1 win at Reading on 24th October, Fleetwood Town conceded in the 88th minute at Barnsley to earn a single point from a 2-2 draw. They have suffered defeat in all-but-one of their last six games on home soil but they nevertheless sit just two points away from safety.

Indeed, Fleetwood are starting to show signs of being a team on the up right now and they will have nothing to fear when they entertain Blackpool tonight. Local pride is at stake here and while Blackpool have proven themselves to be the better side, we expect the two rivals sharing the spoils in what looks set to be a closely-fought encounter.
