Under 2.5 goals at Blackpool vs Peterborough 5/6 for Saturday’s Championship contest

Competition: Championship

Market: Under 2.5 goals

Odds: 5/6 @ 888sport

Looking to make it back-to-back Championship wins on Saturday afternoon, Peterborough will make the trip to Bloomfield Road when they face off against Blackpool.

Starting with the hosts, knowing that they missed out on a golden chance last weekend, Blackpool currently find themselves in the midst of what has become a hugely worrying run of form. Eventually getting hit with a 1-0 loss away at a Derby side who sit rock-bottom of the table, Neil Critchley’s side have come tumbling down the Championship table. Really failing to bounce back from their dreadful display at home against Luton earlier in the month, the Oranges have lost each of their last three second-tier contests on the spin. Likewise, mustering just a trio of points from their seven-match winless run, Saturday’s hosts have also shown some extended problems in the final third. It should be noted that Blackpool have failed to find their net in any of their last four straight outings.

As for the visitors, managing to land what was a much-needed turnaround victory last weekend, there is no doubt that Peterborough are desperate to build off of that result. Eventually coming past Millwall on home soil, the Posh still find themselves at the heart of a relegation battle. Although Darren Ferguson’s men might have made their Championship return earlier in the year, they are currently sat two points adrift of safety. While the Cambridgeshire-based outfit might have brought an end to their seven-match winless run last time out, they have shown some continued problems on the road. Losing each of their last four straight contests away from London Road, it should also be noted that Peterborough have drawn a blank in each of those four away day defeats.
