Sears and Bishop Start at Blackpool
Saturday, 29th Feb 2020 14:12

Freddie Sears and Teddy Bishop both start for Town as manager Paul Lambert makes four changes for the game at Blackpool.

Sears and Bishop, making their first league starts of the season, are either side of Will Keane in a front three as the Blues move to a 4-3-3 system.

Cole Skuse and Emyr Huws join Flynn Downes in midfield ahead of a back four of - from the right - Luke Woolfenden, skipper Luke Chambers, Josh Earl and Luke Garbutt.

Gwion Edwards, Jon Nolan and Alan Judge drop to the bench having started last week’s 1-0 home defeat to Oxford, while Kayden Jackson serves the first game of his three-match ban.

Young striker Tyreece Simpson is on the bench for the first time in a league game, while Armando Dobra is also in the 18.

Blackpool name the same team for the third successive game with ex-Blues loanee Liam Feeney starting and ex-Town midfielder Grant Ward on the bench.

Blackpool: Maxwell, Turton, Moore, Husband, Macdonald, Feeney, Virtue, Ronan, Dewsbury-Hall, Delfouneso, Madine. Subs: Sims, Howe, Bola, Edwards, Spearing, Nuttall, Ward.

Town: Holy, Woolfenden, Chambers (c), Earl, Garbutt, Skuse, Downes, Huws, Sears, Bishop, Keane. Subs: Norris, Wilson, Edwards, Nolan, Judge, Dobra, Simpson. Referee: Christopher Sarginson (Staffordshire).

What's the situation with Dozzell? Injured or dropped?

braveblue added 14:21 - Feb 29
Skuse to inject some pace and flair!!!!
Best we can hope for is a 1-0 victory.

both returning from injury, both talented , lets hope they come through the game without setbacks,and hopefully they will grab their opportunity and stake their claim for regular place now. .COYB [Slip up today and muck will hit the fan .]

This looks like a decent team. Let's see what Bishop and Sears can do, but obviously we mustn't expect them to be game changers alone after long spells out. COYB!

Bayley , back your query — it’s now high time we and he were made fully aware of the what , how , where and why he’s got to behave , improve , man up or/ and physically develop to become the character and footballer his earlier talent and potential indicated ; all this , however , much depends upon whether the challenges/ problems lie outside the normal working/ football environment and so if great care and caution is necessary in public arenas .

If that is a real 3 up top I am chuffed
If Bish and Sears are forced wide I will be ANGRY......Tick Freddy in the middle with Sears alongside Keane.....I hope Freddy can cut inside.

Best we can hope for is a win! Forget the fact that are struggling or predict a score......we have only won 4 in 22.....hardly a gimmee!!! Bit of respect for the opposition is due. Town got to go and earn the victory......and i really hope we do

Come on Ipswich

Who really cares the season is over.....the teams above us are far better and we are never going to beat them in the play off.
If Town do win it's just a false dawn as we will get put to the award against Portsmouth and Coventry

Decent line up with one glaring sideways exception.

blueboy1981 added 15:39 - Feb 29
Who really cares now anyway ?? - not good enough, season over again. Could be a few more embarrassing stats before the end.

Still 55mins to get back in too the game

roystevensonsrocket added 16:04 - Feb 29
We are not going up and I think we might not win another this season . I think at least we are going to be safe . but what the hell do we do next season with no money and an inept manager who has a 5 year contract

herobobby added 16:06 - Feb 29
If this result stays the same then we are all going to be calling for lamberts head, and I think he should go,he clearly can’t get a tune out of what he has at his disposal
The players are just not good enough and certainly aren’t showing any pride to wear the town shirt
The club is badly run by an owner who says he is a town fan,but just doesn’t have it’s best interests at heart

I could never work out why people were saying we've got the strongest squad in league 1 when we were one of the poorest teams to be relegated from the championship for a very long time. Maybe it was down to big club arrogance on our part. I expect they'll be promises of big money investment in the summer and links with players we've got no hope of getting to try and win us over. Well i certainly won't be one of the ten thousand muggs next season.
