Our prediction for this Championship match:
Luton Town will look to build on back-to-back wins over Nottingham Forest and Cardiff City when they take on Blackpool in the Championship round 44. The Hatters aim to move one step closer to sealing their spot in the playoffs, and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against the Seasiders. The bad news for the hosts is that the season is over for influential defender James Bree, who suffered a serious injury in the last league fixture.
Blackpool, on the other hand, are stuck in the middle of the table with little to play for in the last four games of the season. The Seasiders rolled over Birmingham City 6-1 on Monday, but given their anything but good away record in the Championship, we are tempted to put our money on the playoffs-chasing hosts. The likes of Grimshaw, Sterling, Garbutt, Carey, and Ward have been struggling with injuries of late, speaking of the away team.

Highlighted Team (Blackpool):
Blackpool FC are a professional English club based in Blackpool, Lancashire. Considering that Blackpool is a seaside town, it is no surprise they are nicknamed the Seasiders. Founded back in 1887, the club play their home matches at Bloomfield Road, which can hold up to 17,338 spectators. In the 2009/2010 season Blackpool secured promotion to the Premier League, but they were not competitive at this level, suffering relegation to the Championship the following season.
The club’s biggest success, though, came in 1953 when they defeated Bolton Wanderers 4-3 in the FA Cup final. Blackpool are well known for their orange shirts, but the dominant colour of their away kit is white. Preston are considered the club’s biggest rivals, with the two teams facing each other in the West Lancashire derby.
Charlie Adam, who played for Liverpool and has 26 caps for Scotland national team, is regarded as one of the club’s most notable players.
