Match Preview: Blackpool

14 February 2020

Check out all the pre-match content ahead of this weekend's tie with Blackpool...

The Gas go into the weekend after picking up a point on their travels away at Tranmere in the week. They will be hoping to take advantage of the current turbulence in the Blackpool camp after they sacked Simon Grayson on Wednesday.

Manager's Preview: The Gaffer sat down with the press on Friday morning to preview this weekend's game...


Pre-Match: Ben Garner on Blackpool

Opposition: It's been a difficult 2020 so far for Blackpool, who have struggled to rack up points since the turn of the year, with a 2-1 win over Southend United being their only result so far. A 95th-minute winner from Brandon Hanlan on Tuesday night denied Blackpool a point against Gillingham, a game which would prove to be Simon Grayson's last game in charge of the Tangerines, as he was sacked on Wednesday morning. Blackpool come into this game with interim manager David Dunn at the helm, looking to begin a resurgence towards the back end of the season.

Press Talk: David Dunn gave his first interview as Interim Manager of Blackpool on Thursday, looking ahead to his sides trip down south to face Rovers, saying "I've watched 2 or 3 games on them now, getting a good idea on how they play and what their strengths and weaknesses are and that's something I'll speak about to the players and try and do our best to get three points."
