Accrington Stanley vs Blackpool
English League One
Date: Tuesday, 5 March 2019
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Wham Stadium (Accrington).
Neither Accrington Stanley nor Blackpool are pulling up any trees coming into their mid-week meeting on Tuesday night at Wham Stadium. The Seasiders significantly halted their push for the promotional play-offs after a run of four straight league games without a victory. They failed to produce in the final third in last three league outings and they’ll head into this off the back of a demolishing 4-0 defeat to Bristol Rovers.
Blackpool are now seven points shy of the top-six finish and the clash at Wham Stadium might be their last opportunity to catch up with fellow promotional contenders. They will fancy their chances of arresting the above described slump in form here against Accrington given the hosts have also not been enjoying the best of forms of their won. They took just one point from last two league games, a 1-1 draw to Southend United and a 0-1 defeat to Coventry City.
Accrington Stanley vs Blackpool: Head-to-head
Blackpool are undefeated in last four ties with the Accies.
They won two and drew two in the process.
The Seasiders clinched a 3-2 victory when two teams met each other in mid-November last year at Bloomfield Road.
Seven of last eight head to head outings saw goals at both ends.
Accrington Stanley vs Blackpool: Prediction
We would not be surprised to see the end of a high-scoring head to head tradition here. It is fair to say both teams struggled for creativity in the final third of late. The Accies failed to find the back of the net in three of last five home matches in all competitions.
Blackpool did not score in last three league games which is why they are as many as seven points below sixth-placed Doncaster Rovers after all. We will back the Under 2.5 goals FT pick as the main betting option at 1.75, while you can also go for the draw at the half time at 2.10.
Accrington Stanley vs Blackpool: Bet Tips
