Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Bloomfield Road will host Saturday’s football game between Blackpool and Peterborough United. The Seasiders made a flying start to the season, but they do not seem to be on top of their game ahead of the visit of the Posh. Blackpool have been slipping down the standings week by week, and since they head into Saturday’s clash with the lack of confidence, home win should not be considered.
Peterborough United, on the other hand, are seen as one of the main favourites to secure promotion to the Championship, and given the team’s recent form, we believe that you can find value in betting on the away team. In their last away game in the League One, the Posh outplayed Gillingham 2-1, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the promotion-chasing team. In their last meeting at Bloomfield Road, Peterborough United recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Blackpool.
Highlighted Player (Sullay Kaikai):
Sullay Kaikai is an English footballer who plays for Blackpool as a winger. Kaikai is a product of Crystal Palace football academy and it has to be noted that he made three appearances in the league for the Eagles before starting his loan spell with Crawley Town.
The 182-cm tall footballer, who is capable of playing as both winger and attacking midfielder, then signed a loan deal with Cambridge United where he scored 5 goals in 25 appearances in the league. Sullay Kaikai played for the likes of Shrewsbury Town, Brentford and Charlton Athletic before moving to Netherlands.
Kaikai, though, made only six appearances for NAC Breda in the Eredivisie before returning to England. Sullay Kaikai signed a two-year deal with Blackpool in July, 2019 with an option of a further year. The Blackpool winger was born in Southwark, London on August 26, 1995.
Highlighted Team (Peterborough):
Founded in 1934, Peterborough United are a professional club that competes in the League One. The Posh play their home games at London Road Stadium, the venue with the capacity of 15,314. Peterborough’s home colour is blue, whilst the colour of their away kit is blue. The Posh have the third kit as well where yellow and black are the dominant colours.
Peterborough United’s biggest success came in the 1964/1965 when the club booked their place in the FA Cup quarter-finals. Chelsea, though, proved to be a big catch for the Posh, beating them 5-1 in London. It has to be noted that Peterborough United made it to the Football League Cup semis in the 1965/1966 season, with the team losing to WBA in the two-legged tie.
The likes of Cambridge United and Northampton Town are considered the club’s main rivals. The Posh have built a rivalry with Huddersfield Town, with fans seeing MK Dons as rivals as well.
