Blackpool to confirm playoff spot

It might be unlikely but Blackpool could still miss out on the playoffs if results go against them in the final game or two of the season and they fail to take another point. We expect them to cement their top six spot before the final day though with Doncaster due to visit Bloomfield Road on Tuesday. Blackpool have only lost one of their last 10 games at home whilst Doncaster have lost six of their previous 10 road games. Given what is at stake for Blackpool both immediately in this game and longer term in respect of building form, they'll be 100% focussed on getting a result; Donny might not be.

A clean sheet for Blackpool

One of the overarching themes of Blackpool's strong form in the second half of the season is the fact they rarely give too much away. They boast the best defensive record in the league – joint with Champions Hull. Of their last 10 games only three have involved both teams notching goals. Doncaster are somewhat more of a coin toss based on form with half of their last 10 seeing teams score. With Blackpool's fierce back line, it wouldn't be a huge shock to see them bag another clean sheet.

A low scoring match

Doncaster's recent results might show an average that exceeds 2.5 goals but our prediction is based on Blackpool being the key as to how high scoring this affair is. Five of their last six games have been under the 2.5 cut off including their last three home ties. Blackpool have a longer term game average well south of the all important level too; their home games average out at 2.1 goals per match – only four teams in the division have a lower home average.

Blackpool to build momentum ahead of playoffs

Blackpool are so close to confirming their playoff spot that failure to do so now would need a devastating turn of events. These things can happen in football though, which is why Blackpool will see their match against Doncaster as the perfect opportunity to knock any nerves on the head before the final day arrives.
