Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Burton Albion will be looking to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over AFC Wimbledon when they welcome Blackpool at their Pirelli Stadium on Matchday 16. The Brewers quickly bounced back from a 4-1 loss to Fleetwood Town, but they need to keep on improving their game if they are to regain their spot in top six. The Seasiders, on the other hand, are only one point behind the play-offs berth in the League One standings and they are likely to go for a win in Saturday’s football match.
However, seeing that Blackpool’s recent form is anything but brilliant away win should not be considered. The two teams seem to be evenly matched at the moment and we predict that they are going to share the spoils in the Pirelli Stadium clash. In their last meeting in the League One Burton outclassed Blackpool 3-0, but we are tempted to put our money on draw this time out.

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.
