Competition: FA Cup

Market: Blackpool win

Odds: 3/5 @ Pribet

Looking to extend on their FA Cup adventure in midweek, Blackpool will welcome Forest Green to Bloomfield Road on Tuesday night

Starting with the hosts, suffering a collapse away at Cambridge over the weekend as they eventually slumped to a 2-1 loss, Blackpool will certainly be seeking an immediate response here. Still with their sights set on pinching a League One play-off ticket in the New Year, Neil Critchley’s side will also be excited to make a return to home soil on Tuesday night. Last seen at Bloomfield Road storming their way to a 3-0 romp against Carlisle, the one-time Liverpool coach has seen his squad gain a reputation for their continued success in front of their own supporters. Along with winning their previous two showdowns in Lancashire by an aggregate score of 5-1, it should also be highlighted that Blackpool have won seven of their last nine home fixtures across all competitions. With that hometown flurry stemming all the way back to October 3rd, Critchley’s men will be confident of extending on their FA Cup adventure in midweek.

As for the visitors, losing their League One status last season after a nightmare third-tier campaign, Forest Green find themselves at the heart of an extended struggle. Last seen over the weekend putting in another downbeat display as they slumped to a routine 2-0 loss at the hands of MK Dons, the Rovers are in the midst of another relegation scrap. Facing a real battle to keep hold of their Football League status in the New Year, David Horseman has a major job on his hands in Gloucestershire. In fact, along with crashing out of the EFL Trophy on December 5th thanks to a 1-0 defeat at home against Oxford, Forest Green have now recorded just a single win from any of their previous eight appearances across all competitions. Facing what looks set to be another stern examination when they travel to Bloomfield Road on Tuesday night, we are backing a home victory here.
