Blackpool Preview – Can Seasiders finish the job?

Having taken an important 3-0 lead after the 1st leg away from home at the Kassam Stadium against play-off rivals, Oxford United, Blackpool return to the more familiar surroundings of Bloomfield Road for this 2nd leg with the hosts seemingly in the driving seat and one foot already in the League One play-off final.

Last week’s 1st leg win over Oxford became Blackpool’s fifth straight win on the trot in the third tier having previously accounted for Sunderland, Northampton Town, Doncaster Rovers and Bristol Rovers, while form at home has also been impressive.

The Seasiders have lost just one of their last 19 matches at Bloomfield Road, winning 11 and drawing seven and interestingly, their last meeting at home against Oxford United also ended in a 0-0 draw back in mid-December.

Oxford United Preview – Can U’s overhaul deficit?

Following last week’s disappointing and heavy 3-0 loss at home in the 1st leg against Blackpool, Oxford United have no option but to go on the attack from the kick-off on Friday night as the visitors seek to overhaul this 3-goal deficit in order to stay in the tie.

Having won six of their last eight matches overall in League One though, Oxford United will still feel they are in with a chance (albeit slim) of making life difficult for Blackpool, especially if The U’s score the opening goal on Friday night.

Oxford will need to improve upon recent results away from home as the visitors have lost four of their last six matches on the road but they’ve lost just one of their last three visits to Bloomfield Road.
