Bet: Town 4/5 favourites to claim local bragging rights

21 April 2016

Former Pool player Bobby Grant is 5/1 to score first

Fleetwood Town have been made 4/5 favourites to claim local bragging rights when they face Blackpool on Saturday afternoon.

The Cod Army will be out for revenge against their local rivals having lost narrowly at Bloomfield Road earlier in the season.

Tuesday night’s setback in the capital at Millwall ended an impressive run of five league games without defeat for Steven Pressley side.

Meanwhile, Pool were well beaten at Rochdale last Saturday afternoon, as they fell to a 3-0 defeat in Greater Manchester.

Former Blackpool attacker Bobby Grant is 5/1 with the title sponsors of the Football League to open the scoring at Highbury.

Wes Burns, who has five goals to his name in a Fleetwood shirt since arriving on loan from Bristol City, can be backed at 17/2 to net a brace.

Mark Cullen and Danny Philliskirk will be the man to watch for the visitors, and are available at 13/2 to score first for their side.
