The Tangerines have had a very indifferent start to the 2022/23 campaign, winning two, losing two and drawing one. Last time out saw Michael Appleton’s side come back from 3-1 to draw 3-3 against Burnley at Turf Moor, with the game boiling over and producing a red card for either side in the final ten minutes.
Blackpool have strengthened during the window so far with several loan signings coming in from Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester City as well as Brentford left-back Dominic Thompson on a permanent basis. They enter this clash as 6/5 favourites and will be hoping to extend their unbeaten run to three games, especially at home.
This weekend’s opponents Bristol City seemed to have turned around their poor start to the season, winning their last two games against Luton and Cardiff by the same 2-0 scoreline last week, which has propelled them up the table. Nigel Pearson will be very please with the way The Robbins have responded after early defeats to Hull and Sunderland.
However, Bristol have still not spent a penny in the market so far, with the four signings they have made coming in on free transfers. You would think they will have to splash a bit of cash if they are to improve on last season’s 17th place finish. They travel to Bloomfield Road as second favourites with odds of 11/5.
