Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Blackpool will be aiming to build on back-to-back wins over Portsmouth and Fleetwood when they host Oxford United at their Bloomfield Road on Matchday 17. The Seasiders have been impressive at the back of late, with the team eyeing their third consecutive clean sheet in the League One, and we are positive that they will rely on their solid defence in Saturday’s clash. Madine, who scored the winner against Fleetwood, should keep his place up front, alongside Yates.
The Yellows, on the other hand, did well to share the spoils with promotion-chasing sides Hull City and Ipswich Town, but they face an uphill task in the Bloomfield Road showdown. Blackpool aim to move a little closer to the playoffs berth, and we predict that they will pick up all three points from the match. In their last meeting at the venue the Seasiders defeated the Yellows 2-1.
