Match preview

Two sides fresh off altogether contrasting midweek results are set to lock horns in a Championship clash at Bloomfield Road on Saturday, February 18th.

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

Beginning with the former, Blackpool, of course, currently sit dead bottom of the table in England’s 2nd tier.

The seasiders have long found results altogether difficult to come by, with their last league victory, remarkably, having come all the way back in October.

Even the appointment of the experienced Mick McCarthy in the dugout has not proven enough to turn things around, with a pair of draws last week having since been followed by a 15th defeat of the season on Wednesday, on this occasion at the hands of Swansea City.

Midfielder Charlie Patino’s needless dismissal, meanwhile, means that the Arsenal loanee will be unavailable for selection on Saturday.

Safe to say, then, that upcoming opponents Stoke will be licking their lips at the prospect of adding ever further to Blackpool’s woes later today.

The Potters, for their part, will head into the clash with confidence high in the camp, fresh off a morale-boosting result in midweek.

After seeing their push away from the relegation zone slowed by way of just one point from an available six, Alex Neil’s men bounced back, in altogether impressive fashion.

A meeting with struggling Huddersfield Town at The Bet365 Stadium ultimately culminated in Stoke emerging on the right side of a 3-0 result, courtesy of goals from all of Phil Jagielka, Jacob Brown and Lewis Baker.

The Potters, in turn, put some much-needed breathing room between themselves and the bottom three, now sitting a full seven points clear of 22nd-placed Wigan Athletic.

And we at 101 envision Neil and co. doing their part to open this gap ever further come the full-time whistle at Bloomfield Road on Saturday evening.
