Match Preview | Blackpool (H)

21 April 2022

The Hatters face off with Blackpool in front of the Sky Sports cameras at Kenilworth Road on Saturday afternoon.

On the back of two successive wins against Nottingham Forest and Cardiff City over the Easter Period, the Hatters will look to make it three out of three and strengthen their play-off credentials.

 

The opposition:

Blackpool will arrive at Kenilworth Road full of confidence after scoring six against Birmingham City in their last match. 

The Seasiders ran riot and ended a run of five matches without a win in style, taking them within two points of rivals Preston North End with a game in hand.

Shayne Lavery is their top scorer with 10 goals, whilst Jerry Yates, Josh Bowler and Gary Madine have all contributed eight goals each. 

 

Last time we met:

The Hatters were good value for a 3-0 win in terrible conditions back in December, thanks to goals from Sonny Bradley, Elijah Adebayo and Jordan Clark. 

"The conditions made things difficult, Jones said post-match. "It has been apocalyptic up here, with the wind and the rain, so we knew it was going to be a tough game and it is a tough place to come."

Match Report | Luton Town 1-1 Blackpool

23 April 2022

Luton Town had to settle for a point after a 1-1 draw at home to Blackpool at Kenilworth Road on Saturday.

The Hatters made the perfect start to the game, after Elijah Adebayo’s deflected effort gave Town the lead after only two minutes.

But Blackpool would go home with a point after Gary Madine levelled from the penalty spot.

Nathan Jones made four changes from Easter Monday’s win away at Cardiff City. Harry Isted made his first start for the Hatters, replacing the injured James Shea. Sonny Bradley returned to the Town defence following suspension, with Peter Kioso also coming into the starting line-up.

Up front, Harry Cornick replaced Fred Onyedinma. On the bench was Development side goalkeeper Jameson Horlick, who made the senior matchday squad for the first time.

Luton went in front within two minutes, through Adebayo. The 24-year-old got beyond the Blackpool defender and found the bottom corner with his effort.

Town could’ve added a second goal after Kal Naismith found Cornick with a superb ball over the top. Chris Maxwell in the Blackpool goal made a good save to deny Cornick’s volley, however.

The Hatters continued to threaten in the first half, and could’ve added a second goal when Cornick rose highest from Robert Snodgrass’ cross, but saw his header go just wide of the post.

Just under ten minutes after the restart, Blackpool would have a leveller. CJ Hamilton found his way into the Town box and was fouled by Dan Potts. Madine stepped up and beat Isted from the penalty spot.

The first Town switch came just after the hour mark, with Bradley unable to continue, with Admiral Muskwe the player coming on.

And within moments of coming on, Muskwe almost restored Town’s lead. With his first touches of the ball, the striker forced Maxwell into a smart stop.

Jones made his second substitution with 15 minutes left, as Henri Lansbury came on for Potts.

Town’s third and final change of the game saw Cameron Jerome replace Cornick with just under ten minutes left.

Jerome came close to finding a second for the Hatters, but couldn’t guide his header goalwards from Snodgrass’ cross.

Town thought they had found a late winner after Adebayo teed up Muskwe to tap in, but the lineman had already flagged.

 

Goals:

Town: Adebayo (2’)

Blackpool: Madine (55’)
