Blackpool form and stats

Blackpool lost their last game at Plymouth Argyle (placed 7th) after a 0-1 scoreline. Preceding that game was the home draw versus Barrow (after extra-time, 5-3 on penalties) that ended 0-0.

The hosts are modest favourites in this match, with the bookmakers estimating the chance of a home win at about 50% +- five percent. It's interesting to look at how Blackpool have performed under similar circumstances, so here are some numbers: When modest favourites like this (we found nine games) they have won two times, drawn two and lost five.

Last season, Blackpool's league statistics were 11 wins, 12 draws and 12 losses, resulting in a 13th position in the League One. Over these 35 matches they scored 44 goals and conceded 43. Playing at home last season Blackpool managed 9-2-6 (win-draw-lost) with 27 goals and 23 conceded.
