Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Bloomfield Road (Blackpool).
Blackpool host Charlton in one of the most exciting games of the Matchday No 20 on Saturday afternoon at Bloomfield Road. The hosts could move lock on points with the Addicks and break into the top six in the league ladder with a win here.
Nevertheless, getting one will by no means be an easy task for them as Charlton are on a fabulous run of four consecutive league wins. The visitors revealed promotional aspirations with a phenomenal attacking form which saw them bag two or more goals in each of last for league affairs. They also looked well organized at the back allowing only two goals along the way.
Blackpool vs Charlton: Head-to-head
Blackpool lead the H2H tie by two wins ahead of their 39th encounter with the Addicks.
They took four pints from two head to head games with Charlton in the previous term of the competition (1-0 and 1-1).
The Seasiders won 10, drew 4 and lost 5 of 19 home matches against Charlton.
Blackpool vs Charlton: Prediction
Charlton lost last weekend’s home clash with Doncaster in the FA Cup 0-2 at home, but it was because Lee Bowyer rested his entire squad for the upcoming league challenges. The English manager thus confirmed how important a potential promotion to Championship football is for the Addicks who are expecting to welcome Karlan Ahearne-Grant and Lyle Taylor back in the squad. This duo combined 19 goals so far in the season and they will no doubts be the biggest threat to Blackpool’s goal on the occasion.
Blackpool were not successful in the last weekend’s FA Cup action either. Terence McPhillips rested his star man Nathan Delfouneso which is why the team failed to create in the final third against the National League outfit Solihull Moors (ended 0-0).
The Seasiders have previously lost 2-0 to Doncaster to end a three-win thread in League One. They are a tough nut to crack on the home patch where they won 5, drew 3 and lost only 2 of 10 games so far in the season. This is why we see the draw as the most likable of three outcomes here against the Addicks.
