Blackpool – Huddersfield Prediction and Preview
- Mick McCarthy admits “every game is a learning experience” for his Blackpool side as they desperately try to pull themselves out of the Championship’s relegation zone. The Tangerines were on the end of a harrowing 3-0 loss to Middlesbrough on Saturday, meaning their new manager has lost both of his games in charge so far.
- That has extended the Seasiders’ winless league run to 11 matches (D4, L7), a period that has seen them concede 17 goals and score just five in return. The visit of Huddersfield therefore has the feel of a ‘six-pointer’ about it, given the Yorkshire outfit are also in the bottom three, sitting just one point above Blackpool in the table.
- Indeed, Huddersfield’s position is so perilous that manager Mark Fotheringham has described every game as like “a cup final” as they attempt to avoid being relegated back to League One for the first time in 11 seasons. All is not well behind the scenes either, with fans at the Kirklees Stadium unveiling banners protesting against the club’s board during Saturday’s 1-1 draw with QPR.
- That was the fifth consecutive game without a win in all competitions for the Terriers (D2, L3), despite scoring the first goal in three of those outings. They also arrive at Blackpool with the division’s worst away record, picking up just two wins from 13 league outings (D3, L8). Fotheringham will therefore be hoping that a return to Bloomfield Road, where Huddersfield have won five times from ten league visits since 1994 (D3, L2), can spark some life into his side.
- Key battle: Josh Bowler, back at Blackpool on loan from Olympiakos, has lost each of his three previous clashes with the Terriers, with his side conceding three goals on each occasion. Hoping to extend that drought will be Huddersfield defender Tom Lees, who has helped his side keep five clean sheets in his last eight H2H clashes with the Tangerines, picking up six wins in the process (D1, L1).
- Hot stat: Huddersfield’s total of 11 second-half goals is the lowest in the Championship.
