Blackpool Preview – Can the Tangerines strike back?

After winning promotion via the EFL League One play-offs last term, Blackpool have started life in the Championship with a win and a draw from their opening two games. The Seasiders left it late to draw 1-1 with Bristol City on the opening weekend.

Unfortunately, Blackpool failed to build on their good point in Bristol, falling to a home defeat to Cardiff City last time out. Mick McCarthy’s Bluebirds dominated the Tangerines, netting twice after half time to leave with a deserved 2-0 win. However, Pool did thump Neil Warnock’s Middlesbrough 3-0 at Bloomfield Road in the first round of the EFL Cup a week ago.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1420 GMT, Monday 16 August)

Bloomfield Road was a tough place to visit last season, and their form on home soil will be vital to their survival hopes this term. Can Neil Critchley’s men bounce back with a massive three points on Tuesday?

Coventry City Preview – Will the Sky Blues suffer a third straight defeat?

Coventry City kicked off their season with a memorable victory over Nottingham Forest. They were finally back in their home after years away, and late goals from Viktor Gyokeres and Kyle McFadzean turned the game on its head to give the Sky Blues a 2-1 win.

However, the week following the excellent win over the Reds has been a tough one. Last Wednesday, Mark Robins’ men were beaten at home by Northampton Town in the League Cup. They then fell to a narrow league defeat to Barnsley at Oakwell at the weekend.

Blackpool vs Coventry City Betting Advice

These two teams last met in the curtailed 2019-20 League One season. It was a thriller at St Andrew’s, with Callum O’Hare scoring the winner in injury time to give Coventry a 3-2 victory.

The last game at Bloomfield Road ended in a 2-0 win for Blackpool back in August 2018. The Tangerines also won 2-0 away from home that season.


Key Facts – Blackpool vs Coventry City Betting Tip

  • Both teams suffered Championship defeats at the weekend
  • Coventry edged a five-goal thriller when they last met
  • Blackpool lost just four home league matches last term


After defeats last weekend, both will want maximum points from this one. However, like we said, the pair are well matched on paper, and we fancy a share of the spoils at Bloomfield Road in midweek. The draw and under 2.5 goals is nicely priced at 11/4.

Blackpool have opened the scoring against Coventry in each of the last three meetings. The Tangerines are available at evens to score first in this one.
