Blackpool vs Millwall match preview

Two sides fresh off altogether contrasting weekend results are set to lock horns in a Championship clash at Bloomfield Road this Friday, April 28th.

The matchup in question will see Blackpool act as hosts, in a meeting with Millwall.

Beginning with the former, Blackpool are currently in the midst of a last-gasp bid to stave off relegation to League One.

The Seasiders sit 2nd from the bottom of the table as things stand, three points from safety.

And yet, they will likely head into proceedings on Friday evening with confidence high in the camp.

This comes with caretaker boss Stephen Dobbie having overseen a crucial return to winning ways over the course of the last couple of weeks.

Either side of a hard-fought defeat at the hands of promotion-chasing West Bromwich Albion, Blackpool clinched three-point hauls at the expense of both Wigan Athletic and, last time out, Birmingham City.

Significantly, both victories also came by way of clean sheets, sparking hope of a potential great escape at Bloomfield Road.

Upcoming opponents Millwall, on the other hand, have fallen out of form at the most inopportune of times of late.

Amid ongoing efforts to clinch a promotion playoff berth, the Lions, alarmingly, have been condemned to defeat in three of their last four.

Not only that, but all three losses have come at the hands of sides sitting in the bottom half of the table, in Hull City, Birmingham City and, over the weekend, Wigan Athletic.

This came as George Saville’s first-half equaliser proved itself to be little more than a consolation, en route to a 2-1 hosts triumph at the DW Stadium.

Such woes, all told, have culminated in Millwall tumbling out of the top-six, to 7th in the table.

Adrift of the playoff pace by little more than goal difference, though, it goes without saying that tonight’s showdown in England’s northwest marks an absolutely crucial one for hosts and visitors alike.

And though the latter will no doubt be viewed as favourites by many owing to their vastly superior position in the Championship standings, we at 101 would not be at all surprised if Blackpool manage to spring another surprise, in putting Millwall to the sword come the full-time whistle at Bloomfield Road.
