Buoyant Blackpool can illuminate clash with Swansea

Blackpool have been playing lights out in recent weeks and another energetic display from the Seasiders can see off visitors Swansea this weekend. Blackpool may be a little too far off the playoff places to mount a serious promotion challenge right now, but no-one appears to have told Neil Critchley’s men.

They shut Stoke City down in a 1-0 win at the Bet365 Stadium last weekend that should have been sealed long before Josh Bowler’s 86th minute winner. That was their first away win in the league since October, but Blackpool’s recent home record is as impressive as any of the teams currently occupying the playoff places.

Critchley’s men have won four of their last five at Bloomfield Road and only succumbed 2-1 to Bournemouth in the other after two very late Cherries goals. They have had a week between fixtures to recharge their batteries to go again when Swansea, who were given a complete runaround by Fulham in midweek, travel to Lancashire.

Swansea tend to struggle on the road

Russell Martin’s side were victorious at West Brom late last month, one of only four away games they have won all season, thanks to a couple of late strikes, but they had failed to register in five of their previous six on the road.

They might be able to bag in this one because Blackpool are by no means an elite defensive team in this division, but we believe the hosts are potent enough to win even if they do.

Blackpool, who reportedly had the better of the 1-1 draw at Swansea.com Stadium in November, are the bet here and we are also taking them to win 2-1 in correct score betting. The Seasiders have hit 14 goals in their last seven at home while Swansea have conceded 11 in their last seven road trips.
