Blackpool – Stoke Preview: Latest Form, Team News, and Predicted Lineups

You can check out all the latest injury reports and other information about teams here, including our predicted Blackpool vs Stoke lineups.

Blackpool

It's been a while since Blackpool won their last match in Championship as the team is currently on a winless streak of fourteen games in the league. So, it's hardly surprising to see Blackpool sitting in the last place in the standings. That being said, they still have a chance to survive this season if they can find a way to win some games soon.

Meanwhile, Tom Trybull, Charlie Goode, Marvin Ekpiteta, Liam Bridcutt, Lewis Fiorini, Keshi Anderson, and Kevin Stewart are all out with injuries, while Gary Madine is suspended right now.

Blackpool Predicted Lineup:

Maxwell – Lyons, Connolly, Thorniley, Husband – Patino, Dougall – Bowler, Carey, Poveda-Ocampo – Yates

Stoke

In the last six matches in the Championship, Stoke has two wins, one draw, and three losses, so they've clearly been pretty inconsistent in recent matches in the league. On the bright side, Stoke did win in their last game and thanks to that, they are now seven points ahead of the first team in the relegation zone.

When it comes to team news, Stoke will miss Josh Tymon, Connor Taylor, and Sam Clucas through injuries in the next game.

Stoke Predicted Lineup:

Sarkic – Wilmot, Jagielka, Fox – Hoever, Baker, Laurent, Sterling – Campbell, Brown, Celina

Championship Standings

Player to Watch: Tyrese Campbell

Since both teams are far from having a good season in Championship, not many players from these sides have stood up so far. Still, we decided to go with Tyrese Campbell as our player to watch in this game.

The young English forward certainly has the ability to decide a game with his talent, but he didn't do that great of a job so far for Stoke as he only scored five goals in 27 Championship games this season. Despite that, Blackpool needs to keep him in mind in this duel.
