Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Blackpool will be looking to make amends for a shocking 2-1 loss to relegation strugglers Tranmere when they take on promotion-chasing Sunderland on Saturday. The Seasiders failed to impress in the postponed fixture, and it is more than obvious that the lack of motivation is the team’s team main problem. Seeing that Blackpool have little to play for in the season finale, we do not believe that home win should be considered.
The Black Cats, on the other hand, produced a poor performance in a 2-0 loss at Bristol Rovers, with Kyle Lafferty being substituted at the half-time break. Even though Sunderland had no more than two shots on target in the 2-0 loss to Bristol Rovers, we predict that they are going to pick up all three points from Saturday’s football match. The Black Cats are eager to climb to the play-offs berth, and they should take advantage of the situation in the Blackpool dressing room.
This game is postponed.
Highlighted Player (Jay Spearing):
After impressing in Liverpool’s youth academy, Jay Spearing made 30 appearances in the league for the first team. However, the English midfielder was playing below expectations in the Premier League and, as a result, he was sent on loan to Leicester City in 2010.
Spearing played for Bolton Wanderers on loan as well and in 2013 he signed a permanent deal with the Trotters. He scored three goals, while providing six assists for his teammates in 37 appearances for Bolton in the 2016/2017 League One campaign and, no doubt, he helped the club secure promotion to the Championship.
Jay Spearing, who was born in Wallasey, England on November 25, 1988, has yet to make his England debut. His main position is defensive midfield, but he is capable of playing as both central and left midfielder as well. Jay Spearing has a deal with Bolton Wanderers which expires in the summer of 2021.
Highlighted Team (Sunderland):
Sunderland are a professional football club that have been playing their home games at the Stadium of Light since 1997. The capacity of the stadium is 49,000, but before expansion the original ground capacity was 42,000. Red and White shirts are Sunderland’s trademark and the club’s fiercest rivals are Newcastle United. The two local rivals have been contesting in the Tyne-Wear derby since 1898 and there have always been fireworks in what is one of the greatest derbies in English football. Sunderland were on the verge of dropping to the Championship in the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign, but experienced tactician Sam Allardyce eventually helped the team avoid relegation.
The Black Cats have won six First Division trophies (now the Premier League), with the team lifting two FA Cup titles. Sunderland won their first FA Cup trophy in 1937, with the team beating Preston North End 3-1 in the title game. The club was founded in 1879 as Sunderland and District Teachers A.F.C.
