Blackpool - Bolton Wanderers Preview: Seasiders hope to end winless streak to move out Premier League relegation zone

With just two games remaining, Ian Holloway's charges look to make amends and resurrect their home form to cement their place in the top flight



Blackpool (4-3-3):
Gilks, Crainey, Eardley, Evatt, Baptiste, Southern, Vaughan, Adam, Gary Taylor-Fletcher, DJ Campbell, Kornilenko.

Blackpool has no fresh concerns and manager Ian Holloway is expected to play a similar attacking line-up that earned a hard fought draw with Tottenham Hotspur last weekend.

Bolton Wanderers (4-4-2):
Jaaskelainen, Steinsson, Cahill, Knight, Robinson, Lee, Elmander, Muamba, Taylor, Davies, Sturridge.

Bolton is likely to name the same team which suffered defeat to Sunderland last week, and manager Owen Coyle has no selection worries ahead of the trip to Bloomfield Road.

  • Blackpool’s Nigel Eardley and Bolton’s Matthew Taylor have both been booked four times and are one yellow card away from an automatic ban.
  • The Tangerines' run of nine games without a win is the worst in the Premier League, and their last victory came against Tottenham in February.
  • The Seasiders have the worst home form in the Premier League, winning just four games at Bloomfield Road this season.
  • Bolton has the second worst away record and has won only two games, drawing five and losing 11 on its travels this season. only Wolves have been worse (W2-D3-L13).
  • Bolton has conceded 50 goals in the Premier League this season, more than any other club in the top half of the table.
  • Thee Trotters have failed to score on 10 occasions in the league this season, while Blackpool has failed to score eight times.
  • The two club captains, Charlie Adam (pictured right) and Kevin Davies, are both the most booked players for each team, and are also the second highest scorers for their respective clubs.
