Blackpool Preview – Tangerines to go through to round two?

Michael Appleton has made a decent start to life back in Blackpool, with the Tangerines starting their Championship campaign with three points from two games. However, after a disappointing loss at Stoke City last time out, Pool will be looking to get back to winning ways here.

Blackpool’s 2022-23 campaign started with a hard-fought victory over Reading. It was a tight fixture at Bloomfield Road, with Callum Connolly’s ninth-minute goal giving the Seasiders a 1-0 win. Unfortunately for Appleton’s side, they followed that up with a 2-0 loss at Stoke last time out.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 1313 GMT, Monday 8 August)

With this one taking place at Bloomfield Road, the Tangerines will be looking for all three points. The home side are the odds-on favourites, with the bookies offering just 2/5 for a home win.

Barrow Preview – Can the Bluebirds cause an upset at Bloomfield Road?

Barrow survived relegation by the skin on their teeth last season, with the Bluebirds finishing in 22nd position in League Two. Barrow will be hoping to keep themselves well clear of the bottom two this time around.

They have made a stunning start to their 2022-23 League Two campaign, winning two out of two under Pete Wild. After an excellent 3-2 victory at Stockport County on the opening weekend, Barrow beat Bradford City by the same scoreline at Holker Street last weekend.

Blackpool vs Barrow Betting Advice

These two clubs have met just three times before. In the 2020-21 season, the pair locked horns in a Football League Trophy encounter at Bloomfield Road. After a goalless draw, Pool won the tie on penalties.

The meeting before that came way back in the 1924-25 season. They squared off in the FA Cup that year, with Blackpool winning 2-0 at Barrow in a replay after the sides drew 0-0 in game one.


Key Facts – Blackpool vs Barrow Betting Tip

  • Blackpool were beaten at Stoke last weekend
  • Barrow have started their season with two wins from two
  • The Bluebirds have never beaten the Seasiders


Barrow have made an outstanding start to their season, taking six points and scoring six goals in League Two. However, Blackpool’s Championship experience should get them over the line in this home EFL Cup tie. Put some money on the hosts to win and both teams to score at 21/10.

Gary Madine helped himself to nine goals last season, and the 31-year-old is priced at 9/2 to score the opening goal on Tuesday.
