Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Blackpool will be looking to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Rotherham United when they welcome Wycombe Wanderers at their Bloomfield Road on Matchday 15. The Seasiders obviously suffered a dip in form and everything suggests that they are going to continue slipping down the League One standings. Blackpool are low on confidence ahead of the midweek fixture and we do not believe that home win should be considered.
The Blues, on the other hand, continue to impress in the 2019/2020 season, with the team retaining second position in the standings thanks to a hard-fought 1-0 win over Sunderland. Wycombe aim to take advantage of the fact that Blackpool do not seem to be on top of their game ahead of Tuesday’s clash at Bloomfield Road. It has to be noted that the two teams shared the spoils in each of their previous five meetings in all competitions.
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 (Wycombe):
Founded back in 1887, Wycombe Wanderers are one of the oldest clubs in the League One. The Chairboys are well known for their sky blue and dark blue shirts, but the colour of their away kit is orange combined with gun-metal gray.
Wycombe Wanderers host their rivals at Adams Park, a small stadium in Sands Industrial Estate which can hold up to 10,137 people. Milton Keynes Dons are seen as the club’s main rivals, with the two teams facing each other in the Buckinghamshire derby. Wycombe Wanderers made it to the FA Cup semis in the 2000/2001, with the team repeating the success in the League Cup six seasons later.
It has to be noted that the Chairboys have two FA Trophy titles (1991, 1993). Legendary midfielder Gareth Ainsworth is considered one of the club’s most famous players. Ainsworth scored 16 goals in 112 league appearances for Wycombe Rovers.
