Blackpool Preview – Can the League One Tangerines cause an upset?

Neil Critchley’s Blackpool have had a mixed season in League One up until now. Having played 20 games, the Tangerines are in 13th spot, winning eight, drawing three and losing nine to take 27 points from a possible 60.

The Pool have been in poor form of late, winning just one of their previous six in all competitions. They have lost their last two in League One, with Shrewsbury Town and Bristol Rovers both getting the better of them.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

(odds taken 0927 GMT, Friday 8 January)

On their way to the third round of the FA Cup, Blackpool have picked up two impressive away wins. After a 3-0 win at Eastbourne, the Tangerines won 4-0 at Harrogate. Saturday’s fixture against the Premier League side will be a tough test, but Blackpool will fancy their chances on home turf.

West Bromwich Albion Preview – Big Sam’s boys to secure a much-needed win?

Since winning promotion as EFL Championship runners-up, West Bromwich Albion have endured a miserable season in the Premier League. The Baggies board sacked Slaven Bilic after a poor start, replacing him with the experienced Sam Allardyce.

Albion have made a woeful start under their new manager, losing to Aston Villa (3-0), Leeds United (5-0) and Arsenal (4-0). However, they did pick up a point against Liverpool at Anfield. West Brom also drew with Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium in Bilic’s last match in charge in mid-December.
