Blackpool – Wigan preview: latest form, news, and potential lineups

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for this duel, including our predicted Blackpool vs Wigan lineups.

Blackpool

The Seasiders have forgotten what it feels like to score a goal. They are now 5 consecutive games without a goal. After three 0-0 draws in a row made tactical changes last weekend vs Lincoln that bacfired. Lost that game 0-3 and finished it with ten men. More misery on Tuesday when beaten 0-5 in the League Cup by Wolves. 

Blackpool’s issues in attack seem to be only growing. Their star striker and top goalscorer last season Lavery got hurt in the last match and he seems set for a spell on the sidelines now. Already missing the injured Holmes up front. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Grimshaw (GK), Pennington, Lyons, Husband, Hamilton, Dougall, Weir, Morgan, Norburn, Beesley & Rhodes 

Wigan

Wigan suffered their first league defeat of the season last weekend. An early red card for Hughes when Barnsley visited them played a huge part in why Wigan lost this game. 

The confidence remains high though as Wigan have started the season well and they play some very good football. 

Hughes misses the game suspended now. This is a bit of a problem as his natural replacement Kerr is out injured right now. Inexperienced Clare will have to start. Also, remain without the services of their key playmaker Aasgaard. He trains again after injury but won’t be ready for this weekend. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Tickle (GK), Clare, Morrison, Watts, Pearce, Smith, Adeeko, Humphrys, Lang, McManaman & Wyke

​Starting Lineups

​Player to Watch: Charlie Wyke

Wigan’s star striker Charlie Wyke will fancy his chances in the coming match to get on the scoresheet. Wyke scored in one of the matches vs Blackpool last season. He’s been leading Wigan’s attack very well this term too. Now against a defence that conceded 8 goals in their last 2 matches, Wyke will feel confident.
