Match preview

Two sides in the thick of the battle against the drop to League One are set to lock horns at Bloomfield Road on Tuesday, November 8th.

The clash in question will see a Blackpool outfit desperate for a return to winning ways play host to a Middlesbrough side in the midst of a solid stretch of form.

First, let’s delve into the recent endeavours of the former.

Blackpool, after an encouraging stretch of three wins from five, and two from two late last month, have since struggled over the course of the last week.

This comes with a concerning defeat at the hands of West Bromwich Albion having been followed last time out by a 2nd loss on the trot.

On this occasion, it was Luton Town who proved too much for Michael Appleton’s men, as a solitary Luke Berry strike condemned the hosts at Bloomfield Road to the wrong side of a 1-0 scoreline.

Blackpool, as a result, have slipped down to 18th in the table, just two points clear of the bottom three.

Safe to say, then, that the Seasiders could do with steadying the ship on Tuesday night.

A return to the scoresheet on the part of top scorer Jerry Yates would certainly go some way towards aiding such efforts, with the attacker, after finding the net seven times across his prior five appearances, having now blanked in both of the last two gameweeks.

Upcoming opponents Middlesbrough, though, will prove no easy nut to crack.

This comes with Michael Carrick’s troops having enjoyed a solid if unspectacular stretch of form of late, to claw their way out of the relegation zone.

Boro, all told, have slipped to defeat in just one of their last five outings, picking up a pair of wins and a pair of draws along the way.

Fresh off a morale-boosting two-goal downing of Hull City in midweek, the Yorkshire-based outfit followed up with a hard-fought point courtesy of a 1-1 stalemate with Bristol City over the weekend.

Chuba Akpom proved the difference for Boro once more on the day, taking his tally for the campaign to a none-too-shabby seven goals in 12 appearances.

In the knowledge that a three-point haul would see them leapfrog their upcoming hosts in the Championship standings, Middlesbrough, as a result, should be viewed as slight favourites to emerge triumphant when all is said and done at Bloomfield Road on Tuesday night.

We at 101, though, view a sharing of the spoils as the most likely eventual outcome.
