Founded back in 1887, the club play their home matches at Bloomfield Road, which can hold up to 17,338 spectators. Blackpool FC are a professional English club based in Blackpool, Lancashire. In the 2009/2010 season Blackpool secured promotion to the Premier League, but they were not competitive at this level, suffering relegation to the Championship the following season. Considering that Blackpool is a seaside town, it is no surprise they are nicknamed the Seasiders.

As of now Pool is in possession of a playoff spot and will be keen to hold on to it. But considering easier fixtures for almost all of the squads above them on the table, the weekend tie becomes more important. Blackpool is trying to recover from their back-to-back losses against the Dons and Coventry, two tough teams from the competition, with them registering a win to nil on the road against Doncaster the last day.

Two defeats in a row means that Blackpool have slipped out of the top seven and their place in the play-offs come the end of the season is looking under threat as they have a difficult run in. The Tangerines have got much of their success on the back of a solid defence but with six goals conceded in the last four games there are signs that their defence is beginning to creek. They have also been fairly average at home and 60% of their visitors have managed to leave with at least a point.

Visiting Bloomfield Road is the most in form side in League Two. Accrington have claimed 20 points from their previous eight games and they now sit just four points from the top seven. Accrington have a modest away record this season but that is something which has changed of late and they are undefeated in their last six games on the road. Stanley still have plenty of sides to overtake if they are to achieve their aim but they are one of the most prolific sides around at the moment and the fact that they have scored 17 goals in those same eight games means that they will fear nobody.

The Accy, on the other hand, are on a three-game winless run in the League One, with the team conceding seven goals in total in previous three league fixtures. A lively contest is on the cards at Wham Stadium, but we believe that the visitors are closer to picking up all three points from the match than the hosts as they are eyeing promotion to the Championship. Armand Gnanduillet, who came from the bench to score the winner against Doncaster, is likely to be recalled to the starting line-up for the visitors.

With both of these sides chasing down a spot in the play-off places it looks like a match which has the potential to be a cracker when Blackpool host Accrington this bank holiday. Given the relative form of both of these sides it seems prudent to back Stanley to get at least a point, and backing them on the double chance option is available at 8/11 with bet365. For our correct score tip we think that Accrington will be able to go back to Lancashire with all three points when they secure a 2-1 victory, which is priced at 10/1 with the same site.
