Team news, tickets, travel and more...

Blackpool v Wycombe Wanderers
Tuesday 22nd October 2019 (kick off 7.45pm)
Bloomfield Road
Referee: Ben Toner

Wycombe Wanderers continue its love affair with the M6 motorway, embarking north on the long expanse of road for the first of three such occasions in the next month, looking to continue their unbeaten league record away from home in midweek fixtures which currently spans almost two years.

Gareth Ainsworth's men make the most of the team-bonding opportunities provided by long overnight stays and have tended to fare well on the pitch too, collecting 14 points from eight unbeaten matches since they went down 1-0 at Accrington in November 2017.

The Chairboys boss indicated that a return of three draws from successive fixtures this week against Sunderland, Blackpool and Rotherham might have be considered an admirable achievement, but his side racked up three points at the first time of asking against the Black Cats at the weekend, and will now hope to build on momentum against Simon Grayson's Tangerines, who've had a 10-day break from league action.

They've won only two of their last 10 league matches after making a flying start with three straight wins, but possess a strong squad with eye-catching attacking options which could provide one of the sterner challenges of Wycombe's season so far. The last five meetings between the sides have all ended in draws.

POST CODE: FY1 6JJ

Using the car? These are the recommended road directions
Take the normal route to the northbound M6 (M49 and M42). Stay on the motorway until Junction 32 and there take the M55 signposted Blackpool, Fleetwood, Preston North. The M55 joins Yeadon Way after approximately 12 miles, which takes traffic directly to Seasiders Way and Bloomfield Road Stadium. The ground is roughly located about halfway between the Pleasure Beach and the Tower and is about a 1/4 of a mile inland from the south shore.

Mileage from High Wycombe = 219 (approx. journey time 3½ hours) *
* (I advise checking on the day for motorway roadworks and if necessary, allow extra time).

Recommended area for car parking
Parking on-site is limited, however there are plenty of pay and display council car parks within the vicinity of the stadium. Parking on those car parks costs £3.50 for up to 3 hours and £6 for up to 6 hours. Note that the pay and display car parks near to the ground still charge after 6pm.

Using the train?
Due to this once again being an evening fixture, this mode of transport can only be used if you are staying overnight. There is an hourly service from London Euston, and you will need to change at Preston – the journey time is a little under 3 hours. The trains go into Blackpool North that is some 2 miles away from the stadium.

Facilities for away fans
The ground capacity is 17,338 (all seated). I have heard that visiting fans are now accommodated once again on one side of the 'temporary' East Stand on one side of the pitch, where up to 2,500 supporters can be accommodated. Although the stand is covered there are several supporting pillars running along the front of the stand that could hinder your view. The facilities for visiting supporters, food & drink outlets, toilets etc. are housed in the more permanent Armfield Stand, at the south end. Fans access these by walking along the front of the East Stand and through the access tunnel into the back of the Armfield Stand. Entrance to the away section is from Bloomfield Road. The 60-page Matchday Programme costing £3 is available in and around Bloomfield Road.

Time on your hands?
A popular hostelry with away fans is the “Old Bridge House” on Lytham Road. This is just a short walk away - go down Bloomfield Road towards the seafront, turn right into Lytham Road and the pub is on the right. A little further along Lytham Road on the corner with the seafront is the “Manchester Bar” which welcomes away fans. Also on Lytham Road, but this time going in the direction of the Pleasure Beach, is the “Albert Pub” that normally has a good mix of home and away fans.

Match Reports

Report: Blackpool 1-1 Wycombe

Scott Kashket scores in draw at Bloomfield Road.

22 October 2019

Blackpool and Wycombe played out a 1-1 draw in a sixth successive stalemate between the two sides at Bloomfield Road on Tuesday night.

Scott Kashket netted early on for the visitors but they were pegged back shortly after half-time when Ben Heneghan found the net with a precise header, and neither team was able to find a winner as Wanderers settled for a sixth game unbeaten in League 1.

Gareth Ainsworth made three changes from the side that started in Saturday’s fantastic 1-0 victory over Sunderland, bringing Giles Phillips, Curtis Thompson and Scott Kashket into the line-up as Darius Charles, Matt Bloomfield and Rolando Aarons made way.

The hosts began well, looking to remedy a frustrating run of just two league wins in 10, and it needed two brave blocks from the Wycombe backline to deny James Husband and Liam Feeney after the former broke into the box and cut back onto his right foot.

But Scott Kashket only needs one chance to score a goal, and the breakthrough arrived with Wycombe’s first opening on eight minutes. Ryan Allsop’s long free-kick was flicked on by Adebayo Akinfenwa and Kashket nipped in between the keeper and defender to deftly touch it home.

With their tails up, the visitors hunted for a second, and David Wheeler drilled low and hard from the edge of the box at the end of a quickfire counter-attack, before Husband came back for Blackpool, speeding past Jack Grimmer but seeing his shot deflect off Anthony Stewart and land kindly for Allsop.

Joe Jacobson curled a free-kick over the bar on 21 minutes, as Wycombe remained in control at both ends of the pitch, with the Tangerines fans beginning to voice their dissent. The home side survived a scramble from an inviting Jacobson corner, before Blackpool went close when Sullay Kaikai drove forward and unleashed a powerful low drive which fizzed just wide.

Nick Freeman then roamed towards goal, evading a challenge before shooting wide in the last real action of the half, as Wanderers headed down the tunnel with a one-goal lead.

However Blackpool should have been level a minute into the second period, when a corner was half-cleared and Liam Feeney’s cross was headed over from close range by Nathan Delfouneso.

The home side had their tails up, seeing Armand Gnanduillet’s shot blocked at source inside the box, and the equaliser came six minutes into the second half when a deep free-kick found centre-back Ben Heneghan unmarked and his well-placed header looped over Allsop and into the net – his second goal against the Blues in as many games.

Heneghan then had a bullet header disallowed for a push on Giles Phillips as Blackpool began to prove their worth from set pieces, but Wycombe steadied themselves and sustained a spell of pressure at the other end, with Heneghan going into the book for a trip on Freeman.

Husband followed him soon after for a foul on Grimmer, before Rolando Aarons entered the scene, taking the place of Kashket in attack.

Blackpool made their first change when Joe Nuttall replaced Delfouneso up top, and with set pieces increasingly looking like the most likely route to goal for either side, Anthony Stewart saw two low shots blocked in quick succession after Jacobson’s free-kick dropped at his feet.

Callum Guy and Sean Scannell took the places of Jordan Thompson and Liam Feeney in the Seasiders’ midfield, and Nnamdi Ofoborh came on for Curtis Thompson, before Akinfenwa had a sniff of a winner when Allsop’s long kick fell in his path, but a ricochet took it behind for a corner.

Joe Jacobson went into the book for illegally halting a Blackpool counter-attack, and Matt Bloomfield came on for Nick Freeman in the first of four added minutes, but there was no further drama, with Wycombe settling for a hard-earned point on the road.
