Luton – Focussing On The Opposition – Blackpool

With just three games to go, the Hatters have a marvellous chance of claiming a Championship play-off place.

By my reckoning, three more points should see the play-off dream realised and once achieved, who knows where it will lead us.

This Saturday, we welcome Blackpool to Kenilworth Road for a fixture that will, once again, see the quaint old ground rocking.

Ahead of the clash, we’ve looked at how Blackpool’s season has gone so far.

Blackpool have played 42 games, 1 less than Luton and have won 15 of those, drawing 11 and losing 16.

In those 42 games they’ve scored 51 goals and conceded 50, giving them a goal difference of +1.

They’ve amassed 56 points and sit in 16th place in the Championship table.

Their recent form shows a mixed bag of results with the results from the last 5 games reading – LLDLW – meaning they have accumulated 4 points out of the last 15 available.

However, their most recent fixture saw Blackpool hand out a 6-1 thrashing to Birmingham City, at Bloomfield Road.

Their top scorer is Shane Lavery who has 10 goals to his name and for those who partake in our ‘They Played for Both’ series, our previously published article in this series can be read by clicking the link – they-played-for-both-blackpool

On paper this is a game that Luton should win but with a squad full of injuries, I fear it could be harder than expected.

Plus, Blackpool are in a position where they need show no fear, not being involved in the play-offs or relegation battles they can express themselves and go for broke.

Nevertheless, I’m sticking my head above the parapet and going for a 2-0 Luton win, but how do you see this one ending?

    one thing you learn in the championship is, expect the unexpected. all the talk of injuries seem to bring people down, but the players that are fit to play, will be gagging to show there desire to win. keep enjoying this fabulous run where ever it takes us.COYH.
