Blackpool Preview – Will the Seasiders strike back after back-to-back defeats?

Michael Appleton returned to Blackpool in June, and the 46-year-old got off to winning start. Callum Connolly hit the only goal of the game to give Pool a 1-0 victory over Paul Ince’s Reading at Bloomfield Road on matchday one of the new Championship season.

Blackpool failed to build on their opening weekend win, though, as they fell to a 2-0 loss to Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium last Saturday. They then lost at home on penalties in the first round of the EFL Cup, with EFL League Two outfit Barrow winning 4-3 on spot kicks at Bloomfield Road.

Our betting prediction:
Blackpool to score first

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 0937 GMT, Friday 12 August)

Blackpool will be desperate to return to winning ways after the recent league and cup losses. This could go either way, but the Seasiders are the bookies’ favourites to get the win at 5/4.

Swansea City Preview – Can the Swans secure first win of season?

Russell Martin’s Swansea City have had a tough start to their 2022-23 season. In league game one, they drew 1-1 with newly promoted Rotherham United at the New York Stadium. City were then walloped 3-0 at home by Blackburn Rovers last weekend.

On Tuesday night, Swansea were involved in a four-goal thriller with EFL League One side Oxford United. City were two up after 25 minutes, but two second-half goals brought Oxford level. The third-tier team then won 5-3 on penalties to go through.

It has been a pretty bad week for the Welsh side. However, an away victory this weekend will certainly repair the damage. The Swans head to Lancashire as the 21/10 second favourites.


Blackpool vs Swansea City Betting Advice

Blackpool edged the last meeting between the duo back in March last season. Former Cardiff City player Gary Madine hit the only goal of the game to give Pool a 1-0 triumph at Bloomfield Road. The reverse matchup in South Wales ended in a 1-1 draw in November 2021.

Blackpool have a good recent record over Swansea, unbeaten in the last nine meetings. Since City won a League One matchup back in October 2005, the Tangerines have won five and drawn four of nine.
