Blackpool Preview – Can the Tangerines make it three wins in four?

Neil Critchley’s Blackpool booked their place in the 2021-22 Championship after winning promotion via the EFL League One play-offs last term. However, they had a tough start, failing to win any of their opening five (two draws, three defeats).

Blackpool returned from the international break in the best possible way, beating Championship favourites Fulham at Bloomfield Road, with Josh Bowler scoring the only goal of the game. The Seasiders were beaten at home in their next one, but Critchley’s troops bounced back with an excellent 2-1 win at Middlesbrough last time out.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 0914 GMT, Friday 24 September)

Blackpool are slowly but surely proving why they belong at this level, and Pool will move on to 11 points with victory in this one. The hosts are the slight favourites at 29/20.

Barnsley Preview – Will the Tykes secure first away win?

Taking over from the successful Valerien Ismael was always going to be an arduous task for Markus Schopp. The new boss has had a tough time at Oakwell so far, guiding Barnsley to just one win from their opening eight Championship matches.

Schopp’s men have not been easy to beat this season, though, with just Luton Town and Bournemouth getting the better of them in Championship action. The Tykes have drawn five times, which is the joint most in the division.

Blackpool vs Barnsley Betting Advice

This will be the first meeting between the two since they squared off in League One back in April 2019. Barnsley picked up a 2-1 win at Oakwell on their way to promotion to the Championship. The fixture at Bloomfield Road ended in a 1-0 victory for the Tykes thanks to a Cameron McGeehan goal. However, the Tangerines did win 3-1 at home in an EFL Cup affair that season.


Key Facts – Blackpool vs Barnsley Betting Tip

  • Barnsley have won the previous three league meetings
  • Blackpool have won two of their last three in the league
  • The Tykes have picked up just one win from their opening eight Championship games


Blackpool will still be buzzing from last weekend’s win at Middlesbrough, which was their first away success of the season. After beating Fulham at Bloomfield Road, the Seasiders will fancy their chances against anyone on their own patch in the Championship this term.

Barnsley have struggled for wins this season, and they really could do with a Championship victory sooner rather than later. However, we fancy Blackpool to nick a narrow win on home turf at the weekend. Back Pool to prevail at 29/20.

Shayne Lavery has already scored five goals for club and country this season. Back the Northern Ireland international to score anytime in this one at 13/5.
