Blackburn Rovers vs Blackpool Match Analysis & Prediction
21/02/2023 10:45 pm
Blackburn Rovers and Blackpool will be looking to extend their unbeaten runs when they meet at Ewood Park on Tuesday night in the Championship. Both sides have won their last home matches, so victory in this match would be crucial for their promotion and survival hopes this season.
After three-straight draws against Wigan Athletic, Watford, and West Bromwich Albion to begin February, Blackburn Rovers needed to earn a maximum points total from their next two matches versus Swansea City to revive their hopes of making the playoffs.
With only two second-tier wins since New Year’s Day, Jon Dahl Tomasson’s men are seventh in the league standings and level on points with sixth-placed Millwall. Many fans believe this campaign could be their best chance to finish in the playoffs since promotion from League One in 2018.
Despite having almost four times as many shots as Blackpool, Stoke City failed to score in a 1-0 loss to the Tangerines.
New boss Mick McCarthy earned his first win after four games without one, beating the Potters at Bloomfield Road. Ian Poveda scored from outside the box after seven minutes.
With relegation rivals Cardiff City and Huddersfield Town also earning wins on the weekend, Blackpool has joined a trio of clubs at the foot of the second-tier table with 31 points. It is now two points behind 21st-placed Rotherham United.
