Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Saturday’s football game at Bloomfield Road pits together Blackpool and Stevenage, the two playoffs-chasing sides. The Seasiders head into the match following a 2-2 draw with Charlton where they dropped a two-goal advantage. Karamoko Dembele is pushing for a start after scoring as a substitute in the last league match, while there are no fresh injury worries in the home side.
The Boro, on the other hand, aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Wigan, but beating Blackpool on the road is easier said than done. Taking everything into account, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on draw. As for the visiting team, experienced midfielder Alex MacDonald misses out through suspension following his sending-off in the last league match. Luther Wildin is a major doubt after suffering an injury in the defeat to Stevenage.
Highlighted Player (Jake Taylor):
Jake Taylor is a product of the Reading football academy who plays for Exeter City in the League Two. Taylor spent his youth career at Reading, and he continued wearing the blue and white shirt at senior level.
After scoring two goals in 31 appearances with the Royals in the league, the English footballer spent several seasons on loan at the likes of Aldershot Town, Exeter City, Cheltenham Town, Crawley Town, Leyton Orient, and Motherwell. In 2016 Jake Taylor returned to Exeter City, signing a permanent deal with the St James Park outfit.
Despite being born in Ascot, England, on December 1, 1991, Taylor represents Wales on the international stage. He has ten caps with the Wales U21 team, and he made his debut with the Dragons at the senior level in a 2-1 win over Cyprus on October 13, 2014. His primary position is central midfielder.
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.
