Match Previews

Preview: Blackpool v Fleetwood

21 April 2019

Fleetwood Town travel to Blackpool to take on their neighbours in the Fylde Coast derby in Sky Bet League One, and we have all you need to know ahead of the clash at Bloomfield Road.

Fixture: Blackpool v Fleetwood Town

Competition: Sky Bet League One

Date: Monday 22nd April 2019

Kick-Off: 15:00

Venue: Bloomfield Rd, Seasiders Way, Blackpool FY1 6JJ

Referee / Officials: Darren Bond (Referee), Billy Smallwood & James Wilson(Assistants), Andy Haines (Fourth Official)

FLEETWOOD TOWN

Last five results from all competitions: D L D W W

League position: 11th on 57 points

Club’s top goalscorer: Paddy Madden (18 goals in all competitions)

Joey Barton’s men got a point from their game on Friday against promotion hopefuls Peterborough and that saw them stay at 11th in the league. The draw meant they missed the chance to go above their rivals from the Flyde Coast.

The game would hand the Cod Army a chance to not just hand them the chance to go above Blackpool, but a win could catapult them above Terry McPhillips’ men.

The reverse fixture saw Fleetwood pick up a 3-2 win in a thrilling win at Highbury back in October last year. That was the club’s first win over the neighbours five meetings. Can they make it back to back wins?

Following the trip to Bloomfield Road, Barton’s men will host Bristol Rovers followed by a game against Sunderland.

BLACKPOOL

Last five results from all competitions: D L D D W

League position: 10th on 58 points

Club’s top goalscorer: Armand Gnanduillet (14 goals in all competitions)

The Seasiders faced Scunthorpe away from home on Good Friday and picked up a point in the goalless draw at Glanford Park.

McPhillips’ men do not boast of a home record that is too good. They have accumulated only 29 points in a total of 21 home games this season and are 14th in the away league table in the ongoing campaign.

Armand Gnandbuillet has been in form for the side this season, having come back at the club after a brief spell in South Africa. He has found the back of the net 14 times in all competitions for the men in orange so far, racking up four assists too.

Their previous home game saw them endure a 1-0 defeat to our last game’s opponent Peterborough.

ONE TO WATCH

While Gnanduillet has been firing in the goals on a consistent basis for Blackpool, Nathan Delfouneso has played a key role for the club this season.

He has a tally of six goals and three assists this season and has become a star at the club ever since he arrived in the January of 2017 from Swindon.

A product of the Aston Villa youth academy, the 28-year-old played in the Premier League for the Midlands side and spent loan spells at Leicester, Burnley and Coventry. During his stay at Villa, Delfouneso also had a couple of loan stints at Blackpool too.

This is the former England Under-21s’ fourth spell at Bloomfield Road, with the last one coming back in 2014, when he stayed at the club for a season before leaving for Blackburn on a free transfer.

WE’VE MET BEFORE

The reverse fixture at Highbury ended in a 3-2 win for the Cod Army, as early goals from Wes Burns and Ross Wallace had handed Fleetwood a two goal lead. Paddy Madden made it 3-1 in the second half, after Delfouneso pulled one back, and the Seasider’s late consolation goal. Gnanduillet’s late sending off only worsened the situation further for the Tangerines.

Match Reports

Report: Blackpool snatch win after late heartbreak for Cod Army

22 April 2019

Fleetwood Town were left frustrated on Easter Monday as Blackpool scored a 95th minute winner at Bloomfield Road to seal a 2-1 victory.

Joey Barton’s side thought they’d earned themselves a point, after Ched Evans’ header cancelled out Jay Spearing’s first half penalty.

However, Nathan Delfouneso scored the winner late in injury time after Armand Gnanduillet’s effort hit the post, leaving Fleetwood frustrated.

Nathan Sheron was sent off with around 15 minutes to play for a challenge on Matty Virtue.

Fleetwood started well, with Wes Burns – who has scored against Blackpool twice in two matches – saw the ball fall to his right hand side, maybe off-balance but the full-back saw his shot go narrowly wide.

The home side were looking to attack in the match too, and with Gnanduillet out-muscling James Hill, he managed to get the ball onto his left foot, let one curl into the far corner, but Alex Cairns was there to punch it away from danger. Hill looking composed on his first start for the club.

With twenty minutes on the clock, and the fans from both sides were in fine tune making a cracking atmosphere inside Bloomfield Road, it was Paddy Madden’s turn to find space inside the Seasiders’ penalty area.

Evans did well to knock the ball down to the Irishman, but it was Ben Heneghan who came across to block the shot.

Nya Kirby – on loan from Premier League side Crystal Palace – won his side a penalty on the half-hour mark, and it was up to captain Spearing to convert from the spot, giving the home side the lead in the Fylde Coast derby. A soft goal to concede.

Fleetwood responded with a goal from Evans after a lovely floating cross from Ash Hunter on the left hand side. The captain rose above Tilt and gave the keeper no chance of pulling that out of the goal. Just the goal Town deserved heading into the break.

As play entered the second-half, Barton made a slight change to the formation with Coyle coming out of midfield, Burns going into a more attacking wing position. It nearly paid off within minutes as Madden saw the ball come to him, and with a turn and shuffle, he got his shot off, but saw it denied by Mafoumbi – so close.

The game seemed to settle down in the middle stages of the second-half, with both teams struggling to really get hold of the ball. Madden continued to look lively on the wing, with Hill doing his work against the target man for Blackpool.

With twenty minutes left on the clock, Fleetwood were down to ten men. Sheron saw a straight red after a tackle on Virtue. The midfielder just mistimed his tackle, giving the referee no choice but to show the red.

Ashley Nadesan and Harrison Biggins made their way onto the pitch for Madden and Hunter following the dismissal.

The onus was on Blackpool to attack with Town down to ten men, but it was Fleetwood who looked the most likely to get the winner. Hill rose inside the Pool penalty area and nearly saw him bag the winner on the full EFL debut.

The winner did come late in injury time as Gnanduillet hit the post, leaving it to fall nicely for Delfouneso to tap it in from close range. Heartbreak for Fleetwood to leave with nothing.

Blackpool XI: Mafoumbi (GK), Heneghan, Spearing ©, Nottingham, Thompson (Delfouneso 63’), Tilt, Virtue (Pritchard 74’), Gnanduillet, Kirby (Evans 79’), Bola, Long.

Subs not used: Boney (GK), Anderton, Dodoo, Feeney.
