Blackpool Preview – Can Pool extend unbeaten run to five?

Blackpool have had a fine first season back in the Championship after winning the EFL League One play-offs last term. The Seasiders have won 14, lost 13 and drawn ten of their 37 league fixtures.

Blackpool have kept their slim play-off hopes alive after collecting ten points from the last 12 on offer. Before holding Sheffield United to a goalless draw last time out, the Tangerines had beaten Reading, Stoke City and Swansea City.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 0857 GMT, Friday 1 April)

Neil Critchley’s men are currently in 13th position in the second-tier table, nine points away from the final play-off spot. A top-six finish looks unlikely, but the Seasiders will not give up hope. Can they keep their excellent run going with three points at home on Saturday?

Nottingham Forest Preview – Will Forest’s superb run continue?

Nottingham Forest are one of the form teams of the Championship right now. Steve Cooper has done a remarkable job at the City Ground since taking over, turning the Reds from relegation fodder to genuine promotion candidates. Forest start the weekend just three points behind sixth in ninth.

Since the turn of the year, only Cardiff City have managed to beat Nottingham Forest in Championship action. Since that narrow loss in South Wales in late January, Cooper’s men are unbeaten in seven league fixtures, winning four and drawing three.
