Blackpool v Posh | Match Preview

A look ahead to the trip to Blackpool.

16 February 2018

We look ahead to Sunday's Sky Bet League One game at Bloomfield Road against Blackpool.

Peterborough United are in action on Sunday this weekend as they travel to Bloomfield Road to face Blackpool (3pm) in Sky Bet League One action with the Seasiders looking to build on an eye-catching victory over the league leaders Wigan Athletic last time out.

Gary Bowyer’s men were 2-0 winners at the DW Stadium while Posh drew 2-2 with promotion-chasing Scunthorpe United in their last fixture with Marcus Maddison and Junior Morias on target in an entertaining encounter. The fixture at Bloomfield Road is taking place on the Sunday because Preston North End are at home on Saturday against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

TEAM NEWS

Posh are without the services of Alex Penny (dislocated shoulder) and Gwion Edwards due to a long-term ankle injury. There are no new injury worries for manager Grant McCann to contend with ahead of the trip north.

Blackpool have former Posh striker Kyle Vassell in their ranks and he could well lead the line against his former employees. Jay Spearing is pushing for a starting berth after he was named among the substitutes in the mid-week win at Wigan.

MCCANN QUOTES

“We are in a good position, I feel I have been saying that for a few weeks but that has also demonstrated that we are still in the mix. We are all working hard, the management team, the players and the staff. Our performances have been good, at Gillingham and against Scunthorpe United and we are looking forward to the game on Sunday.”

FROM THE OPPOSITION

Blackpool striker Armand Gnanduillet said: “Against Wigan we did exactly what other teams have been doing to us in the last few months. “I think we are starting to wake up now. It started against Walsall because we were behind twice but came back both times. “But this is a big step because we showed great character and we are ready to show it again against Peterborough on Sunday

Grant McCann was left frustrated as his side were forced to settle for a 1-1 draw at Bloomfield Road.

Peterborough United recorded their third successive draw in Sky Bet League One, but will point to a controversial Blackpool equaliser on an awful pitch at Bloomfield Road as Nathan Deflounso appeared to bundle home the equaliser with his arm in front of 301 Posh fans, who deserve enormous credit for their backing.

Michael Doughty was a whisker away from a spectacular opening goal inside the opening three minutes but his volley from 25-yards took a slight deflection and went wide of the target. Lumley was called upon to deny Doughty on nine minutes after the former QPR man found some space around 30-yards from goal.

Longstaff saw a low effort comfortably gathered by a watchful Bond on the quarter hour mark after the midfielder managed to evade a couple of tackles. Doughty saw a shot blocked and then Ryan fired well wide at the other end.

The deadlock was broken on 22 minutes and it was a 25th goal of the season for Jack MARRIOTT who powered home a header at the near post after a wonderful cross from Maddison on the half volley. Forrester fired well wide of the target on 28 minutes from long-range after Doughty did well to pick him out in a tight area.

On 39 minutes, Marriott was inches away from converting a low Maddison cross after a scrappy spell in the game here both teams struggled to deal with the awful surface. Four minutes of added time was indicated and inside the first minute of that, Solomon-Otabor headed over the bar at the back post.

Moments later and the visitors were level and it in controversial circumstances as DELFOUNSO appeared to bundle the ball over the line with his arm after good work from Solomon-Otabor, but incredibly the assistant and referee both missed it despite lengthy Posh protests. Maddison saw a shot saved by Lumley at the other end after cutting inside onto his left-foot.

Maddison curled over after forcing his way into the box five minutes after the re-start while Baldwin did well at the other end to block after Delfounso produced a sharp shot on the turn. Mellor was finally cautioned on 57 minutes for persistent fouling if nothing else, the latest foul on Forrester. Marriott was booked for dissent just after the hour mark after showing frustration at being penalised for a soft free-kick.

Gnanduillet headed wide from a driven cross on 68 minutes, just getting ahead of Bond to the cross into the box. Posh made a change on 75 minutes with Omar Bogle replacing Forrester. Ryan fired over from long-range on 80 minutes for the Seasiders. Bond did well to grab a loose ball after a bit of a scramble before George Cooper replaced Ward.
