Blackpool Preview – Can the Tangerines end home campaign with three points?

This time last year, Blackpool were getting ready for the League One play-offs. After booking their spot in this season’s Championship after winning the play-offs, staying in the second tier was Pool’s priority. They passed that test with flying colours.

Blackpool find themselves in 15th spot with 60 points to their name. After an iffy start, the Tangerines grew into the season and kept themselves well away from any relegation danger. Overall, the Seasiders have picked up 16 wins, drawn 12 times and have suffered 16 losses on their Championship return.

Our betting prediction:
Blackpool to win & both teams to score

(odds taken 0909 GMT, Friday 29 April)

Blackpool go into this one having won two and drawn one of their last three. In their last home game, Neil Critchley’s troops thumped Birmingham City 6-1. Can they claim another home win on Saturday?

Derby County Preview – Will the relegated Rams fall to a third successive loss?

Derby County’s long tenure in the Championship is over. Their inevitable relegation was confirmed when they lost 1-0 to Queens Park Rangers at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium on 18th April. Their misery was compounded after a 3-1 home reverse to Bristol City last Saturday.

Derby remained competitive all season amid off-field issues. However, the damage was done after their 21-point deduction. Without the docked points, the Rams would have finished well clear of the drop zone.

Derby will no doubt go again in League One next term, but the problems away from the pitch need to be sorted sooner rather than later. Can they end a miserable campaign on a positive note?


Blackpool vs Derby County Betting Advice

Derby ran out narrow winners when the duo locked horns at Pride Park in December. It could have gone either way, but Luke Plange’s goal six minutes after half time won the points for County.

That was the first meeting between the pair since Derby thumped Blackpool 4-0 at Pride Park in a Championship affair back in April 2015. The Rams have won the last five meetings, while the Seasiders have picked up just one victory in the last nine (eight losses).


Key Facts – Blackpool vs Derby County Betting Tip

  • Blackpool beat Birmingham 6-1 in their last home match
  • Derby will be plying their trade in League One next season
  • The Rams have won eight of the last nine meetings


Blackpool are making a strong finish to a solid first season back in the Championship. After two wins and a draw from their last three, we fancy Pool to get maximum points from this one. We like the look of 5/2 for the hosts to win -1.

Gary Madine has been in decent form in 2022, with six of his nine goals coming since the turn of the year. Madine is available at 2/1 to score anytime in this one.
