Competition: League One

Market: Blackpool win

Odds: 7/10 @ 1xBet

Looking to clinch back-to-back League One victories in midweek, Blackpool will welcome Fleetwood to Bloomfield Road on Tuesday night.

Starting with the hosts, managing to make a crucial return to winning ways over the weekend, Blackpool will be desperate to use that gritty performance as a platform to build on. Eventually clinching a 1-0 victory at home against Cambridge, Neil Critchley’s men know that nothing short of three points will be enough to keep alive their fading play-off dreams. However, although the Seasiders might have failed to collect consecutive victories across any competitions since the middle of January, the one-time Liverpool coach will take plenty of solace from his side’s extended success on home soil. Including a stunning 4-1 romp against automatic promotion contenders Bolton on February 24th, Blackpool have remarkably not suffered a single League One defeat at Bloomfield Road since a 2-1 defeat against Northampton back in November. Likewise, it should also be noted, Critchley’s side have not conceded a goal in front of their own supporters in over 300 minuets of action.

As for the visitors, while some in Fleetwood’s camp might have been dreaming of the chance to book a top-half finish this season, the Fishermen have endured a major League One nightmare this season. Last seen over the weekend putting in another downbeat display as they slumped to a 4-0 drumming against Oxford, Charlie Adams’ men are limping their way to a fourth-tier return. Opening the midweek fixtures sat six points adrift of League One safety, the one-time Liverpool midfielder has seen his squad fail to win any of their previous five appearances. Likewise, it should also be highlighted, Fleetwood have registered just a single win from any of their last 11 outings – a rut that stems all the way back to February 6th. Facing what should be a stern challenge here, it should also be noted that Tuesday’s guests have collected just a single League One victory on their travels since the end of October.
