Blackpool Preview – Tangerines to claim fourth win on the trot?

Blackpool have had an exceptional season in the third tier, winning 22 of their 45 matches. They really kicked on in the second half of the campaign, losing just four League One games in 2021.

Since surprise back-to-back 1-0 defeats to Rochdale and Shrewsbury Town, Blackpool have got back on track with three successive wins. After a crucial 1-0 victory over Sunderland at the Stadium of Light, victories against Northampton Town and Doncaster Rovers have followed.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1508 GMT, Friday 7 May)

Blackpool have been brilliant at Bloomfield Road this season, winning half of their 22 home league fixtures. Only Peterborough United and Hull City – who have both won automatic promotion – have picked up more home points in League One this term. Can Pool warm up for the play-offs with another home victory?

Bristol Rovers Preview – Another bad away day for the relegated Pirates?

Bristol Rovers have had a miserable season in League One, taking just 38 points from 45 games to suffer relegation to the fourth tier. Gas have won ten, drawn eight and lost a staggering 27.

Over the course of the season, Ben Garner, Paul Tisdale and Joey Barton have all tried but ultimately failed to turn their fortunes around. Failure to beat third-place Blackpool on the final day of the season will see Rovers finish rock bottom of the League One table.
