On October 15, Blackpool locked horns with Accrington Stanley for a League Two match and even though Blackpool scored first, they just could not maintain their lead as the home team was able to seal the victory by scoring 2 goals in the last few minutes of the game.

This result was rather controversial as Accrington Stanley was given a late penalty kick which ensured the victory for the home team and this penalty that was allowed was a fairly dubious one as it was not clear on whether or not it should had been given in the first place.

Blackpool manager Gary Bowyer is hoping to have some of his injured strikers back in contention for the game against Wycombe this weekend.

Blackpool are having an injury crisis up front with as many as four strikers being unable to play due to various injuries.

Danny Philliskirk,Kyle Vassell, Jack Redshaw, and Jamille Matt are the current injury concerns plaguing the club. The treatment table also welcomed midfielder Colin Daniel after his injury in the 1-1 draw with Barnet a few days ago. However, managerBowyer says that the club has good news on this regard since the injury is not as big as initially feared.
Mark Cullen is the only fit forward at the disposal ofBowyer. He scored the goal in the game against Barnet but Blackpool were unable to come away with all three points due to a late equaliser fromJohn Akinde. After having managed an opening day victory against Exeter City, Blackpool have been unable to capitalise on the good form shown in pre-season. They suffered a 2-1 loss against Morecambe in the previous game before this draw. The club need to return to winning ways soon and the home match against Wycombe Wanderers could just help them in this regard.

Despite being the head coach of Bolton Academy, Jimmy Phillips is not going to be easily dishing out senior team debuts to the players.

Phillips presently has the additional charge of Bolton’s senior team too after Neil Lennon left the post.

And, many believe as he has helped many youngsters grow through the Academy, he would take this opportunity to give them a bit of exposure at the bigger level.

However, according to Phillips, he might look to try out a few, but, only those whom he would be pretty sure about that this is the right moment to promote them.
