Blackpool hosts Peterborough in round 29 of English League One. The match will be played on Tuesday, March 23rd at Bloomfield Road (Blackpool).
Blackpool is remembered for winning the cup in 1953, under Stanley Matthews. Others may recall the 2010/2011 season, when Ian Holloway brought the team through the playoffs to the Premier League, where it showed bright football. But then the Tangerines dropped to the Championship and even to League 2. Yes, they managed to return from the fourth tier relatively quickly but got stuck in League One. For example, the team was only 13th in the previous season. As for the current championship, Blackpool scored only 53 points in 33 rounds, which only allows the team to close the top 10. However, Neil Critchley's charges are showing good shape. The team has not lost nine games in a row. Moreover, if we talk only about the championship, the Tangerines suffered only one defeat in the last 13 rounds (from Ipswich). In principle, the season at this level is long, and Blackpool still has an opportunity to win back the gap to the leaders, especially if it wins the games that were postponed in due time. But it is desirable to win more (four of the last six meetings brought draws).
Peterborough begins to revive after the recession. The Posh are closely associated with Darren Ferguson - the son of the legendary Sir Alex, a long-term manager of Manchester United. The Scotsman ended his unsuccessful career as a football player in this team. With him, the club, which often received players from Man United, made its way to the Championship but again dropped to League 1. In the previous season, the Posh took seventh place. And now they are seriously claiming to be promoted directly. However, the recessions that the club periodically goes through are its main problem. In November and December, there were four defeats in five rounds. Spring also began with only one point scored in three League 1 games. But then the White-Blues managed to beat Portsmouth with a minimal 1-0 score. And on the 20th of March, there was a fiery duel on the pitch of Rochdale. Peterborough was winning 2-0, but conceding in the 88th and 90th minutes, it was already losing. But the Posh managed to pull out a draw. The decisive goal from the penalty spot was scored by Johnson Clarke-Harris. The forward who has come from Bristol Rovers has already scored 22 goals (five from the penalty spot). Including thanks to his efforts, Ferguson's men take second place and lag behind Hull City by only two points. However, Peterborough played two matches less.
Blackpool has been looking decent for several weeks. But Peterborough also shows a good game and does not intend to slow down. It is worth taking a closer look at the option “Both teams to score – yes”.
