Blackpool still aims for survival

Blackpool lock horns with Blackburn Rovers in a crucial match where their chances in the Championship is at stake. These two teams cannot afford a draw, or worse, a loss in this match, as it will not be much of a help for them. A three points could help Blackpool survive the relegation zone, as they are currently below the drop zone. As for the Rovers, if they managed to win in this match, they can be promoted in the league table. This meeting will be on February 22, 2023, at 3:45 AM (GMT+8), with the Rovers as hosts.

These two teams are already familiar with each other, so familiarity is no longer an issue between them. From their last 63 meetings, the hosts are at the upper hand, winning 24 matches. However, the visitors are not that much less than them, as they only have two wins less than their hosts. Moreover, the hosts head in this game unbeaten in their last seven games across all competitions. The complete opposite happens for the visitors though as they are winless in their last eight successive away games.

The team is in a more desperate situation is Blackpool, as they badly need wins, to continue their campaign. In the league table, they are currently at the 23rd, the second to the last in the league table with 31 points. They are just two points away from claiming the 21st spot, which is outside the relegation zone. If they managed to pull off an upset here, they can climb to the 21st of the league table. Ahead of this crucial match, they were able to win last time out against Stoke City in a 1-0 win. Prior to that win, they are actually on a six-game winless run, pushing them lower in the league table. With that, they are aiming for a victory in this match, to help them prolong their campaign in the league.

The Rovers continues their pursuit for a spot in the playoff, trying to secure an additional three points through this match. Their hard-earned 1-0 victory against Swansea City on their previous game is a huge boost of confidence for this team. Additionally, they also have a good momentum, as they are unbeaten in their last seven matches across all contests. This run helped them to reach the fifth round of the FA Cup. Currently, they are at the seventh spot of the league table with 49 points from their 32 games. Their high confidence will be their key to secure a spot in the playoffs.

However, the Rovers might be facing a major problem for this game. They have two major doubts, with Brereton Diaz, and Bradley Dack are both forced off injuries. Scott Wharton on the other hand remains on the sideline for this match.
