Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Peterborough United and Blackpool face each other at Weston Homes Stadium in what is expected to be a very exciting game. The Posh failed to impress in a 2-0 loss at Crewe, but they have been impressive at home ground this season, with the team registering four wins and one draw. Peterborough are eager to retain top position in the standings, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s football match.
In their last home game in the League One the Posh hammered Shrewsbury Town 5-1. The Seasiders, on the other hand, are on a four-game winning run in all competitions. Blackpool rested first-team regulars in the EFL Trophy win over Leeds United U21, but he is likely to field the best possible side against Peterborough. A lively contest is on the cards at Weston Homes Stadium, and we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score.

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.
