Blues to Travel to Blackpool Next Saturday
Sunday, 4th Oct 2020 14:00

Town will travel to face Blackpool at Bloomfield Road next Saturday (KO 3pm) with the fixture against the Tangerines having been brought forward from Saturday 14th November.

Both the Blues and the Seasiders have had next weekend’s scheduled games postponed due to international calls for the opposition - Charlton and Sunderland respectively - so the decision was made to move the November match, which was due to take place during the next international week.

Blackpool are currently third bottom of League One having won one and lost three so far this season. Yesterday the Lancastrians were beaten 3-2 at home by new leaders Lincoln City.

Could have done with this weekend off. Lots of injuries players not quite ready the extra rest would have been useful

Great to hear.

we have postponed games in past for internationals, dont want injuries ect, now we actually DO have players out we are going to play a game rearranged at short notice ! there will be some mumbling if this goes pear shaped .

BryanPlug added 14:32 - Oct 4
Good. They need to play as many games as possible in case there’s another lockdown.

MickMillsTash added 14:44 - Oct 4
Its a dangerous game for us- based on last seasons away game we're going to need some more muscle in the midfield.

Mark added 14:47 - Oct 4
I am pleased about this, I would prefer to keep the games coming rather than play catch up later. I know we have some injuries but we also have a big squad with cover in all positions. We need to keep playing and keep winning.

getawig Have a rest your having a laugh they have hardly played since last March thats half the trouble with getting the injuries squad rotation international breaks .........

This is good news!

Far better to keep playing and the momentum going.

The injury situation is a complete nightmare, but we have such a large and strong squad, I think we'll cope.

dirtydingusmagee - your comment sounds almost threatening. Mumblings will only come from those whose opinions are not valued anyway - get a life and smell the roses! Go down the pub, go for a walk, clean the car, listen to music, whatever - just be more positive about things. Oh and can anyone tell me if there has ever been a team in recent history who could have called a game of because of international calls but failed to do so.

Before the next bandwagon rolls through town, this was pre-agreed before the MK Dons game, at which type Jackson, Judge and Woolfy were coming back from injury, Norwood was fit alongside Downes and Ward

Superb! A football weekend is never quite the same without your own team playing.

Need to play a helluva lot better though and select the right players (not Kenlock)

positivity added 16:22 - Oct 4
hope downes, jackson and ward will be fit in time; could be a risky one, can see the logic though

Great move, well done Town

runningout added 17:31 - Oct 4
Good move. Injuries or not we should get on with it.

PortmanTerrorist added 20:23 - Oct 4
We had about the most expensive bench in league 1 history yesterday so am glad we are not hiding behind injuries as, with our club's history, who is to say the injury situation won't be worse in November!

Let's play and COYB

think its a chance for us to proove we can match what lincoln did yesterday & put
paid to all the doubters on here.surely we have stronger enough squad to overcome the
usual injury situation.
