Match Preview | Blackpool (A)

Luton Town travel to the seaside to take on Blackpool on Saturday afternoon.


On the back of two successive home draws against Sunderland and Reading respectively, Nathan Jones' side will be focused on getting back to winning ways and closing the gap to the play-off positions.

The opposition:

Blackpool currently find themselves in 16th position, four points below the Hatters at the start of play.

Despite a loss in midweek against West Brom, the Seasiders are unbeaten in three of their last five matches.

A large reason behind their recent wins has been Jerry Yates, who is the league's top goalscorer. He is leading the way in the Sky Bet Championship with nine goals so far, including the winner in their away win against Coventry City last weekend.

Last time we met:

Elijah Adebayo scored his 17th goal of the season in a 1-1 draw against the Seasiders last time out.

The reverse fixture at Bloomfield Road was played in December and goals from Sonny Bradley, Elijah Adebayo and Jordan Clark gave Luton a resounding victory in horrible conditions.

Skipper Bradley opened the scoring just before half-time before Adebayo nodded in off the post and Clark added a late third after being teed up by Admiral Muskwe's cut-back.

Ticket information:

We have sold 1,194 tickets for Saturday's away fixture at Blackpool. Further tickets are available to buy on the day with cash payments only. Tickets can purchased from the booth outside the away turnstiles at the same prices as previously advertised.
