Market: Blackpool draw no bet
Odds: 6/5 @ 888sport
Looking to cause what would be an upset on home soil in midweek, Blackpool will welcome Stoke to Bloomfield Road on Wednesday night.
Starting with the hosts, putting in another rugged display on their travels over the weekend, Blackpool have only continued to shock many across the Championship. Despite only making their second-tier return earlier in the year, the Oranges were last seen on Saturday landing a 1-0 win away at Sheffield United. Storming their way up the table and opening the midweek fixtures sat in the play-off spots, Neil Critchley’s side are in the midst of a stellar purple patch. Smelling a golden chance to lay down another marker on Wednesday night, the former Liverpool coach finds his side enjoying a three-match winning run. With that run highlighted by a 3-2 victory away at Reading last month, Blackpool have collected 12 points from their last five Championship outings. Likewise, it should also be noted that the midweek hosts have lost just a single contest since the middle of September.
As for the visitors, throwing away a three-goal lead in woeful fashion over the weekend, Stoke find themselves in the midst of a real blip. Eventually having to settle for a hugely worrying point against the Championship strugglers on Saturday, Michael O’Neill’s side have come tumbling out of the play-off spots. Knocked out of the EFL Cup thanks to a 2-1 defeat against Premier League outfit Brentford, the one-time Northern Ireland boss has seen his side fail to win any of their last five matchups across all formats. Suffering four straight defeats last month, the Potters have also gained a reputation for issues at the back. Shipping a trio of goals against Cardiff last time out, Stoke could face another stern test when they travel to Bloomfield Road in midweek.
