The Hatters are on their travels once more as they face Blackpool in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday afternoon.

Without a win in their last four matches, Nathan Jones' side will be keen to get back to winning ways at Bloomfield Road ahead of a busy festive period.

 

The opposition:

Promoted via the play-offs last season, Blackpool have started well in their first term back in the Sky Bet Championship since 2015.

Despite being winless in their last five matches, the Seasiders are comfortable in 11th place and six points away from the play-off places.

 

Last time we met:

Substitute Jason Cummings rescued a point for the 10-man Hatters as they salvaged a 2-2 draw at Kenilworth Road.

Highlights from that fixture back in April 2019 can be found on our YouTube channel via the link below...
