Match Preview | Blackpool v Albion

Blackpool's Bloomfield Road

West Bromwich Albion will go in search of a second consecutive away victory at relegation-threatened Blackpool on Tuesday night (ko 7.45pm).

The Baggies came from behind to win 2-1 at Stoke on Saturday - a result which boosted their Play-Off hopes heading into the final five fixtures.

Blackpool gave themselves a survival lifeline by beating bottom side Wigan Athletic 1-0 at Bloomfield Road, meaning they're now four points off safety with four games left. 

Albion won the reverse clash 1-0 at The Hawthorns thanks to Okay Yokuslu's late strike on a night which saw Carlos Corberán claim his first triumph as Baggies boss.

Our opponents

Blackpool have had a difficult season in the Sky Bet Championship but are still in with a shout of saving their second-tier status. 

The Seasiders, who sit four points adrift of safety, have four games remaining, starting with the visit of the Baggies on Tuesday. 

They play two games at Bloomfield Road against the Albion and Millwall, while also facing Birmingham City and Norwich away from home. 

Blackpool's 1-0 triumph over Wigan at the weekend was just their second league win in ten matches and ended a sequence of four straight defeats. 

Stephen Dobbie, a man who had four loan spells with Blackpool during his playing career, was put in caretaker charge until the end of the season on Saturday, April 8, replacing Mick McCarthy.

Tuesday's hosts have only lost two of their last 10 home fixtures in all competitions (W4, D4) and they'll be desperate for another positive result by the seaside in midweek as they attempt to claw back more ground on the teams above them. 

It's been a challenging campaign for the Seasiders

From the Albion Archive 

Albion scored three times in six second-half minutes to record an important 3-1 victory at Blackpool in April 2008.

Ben Burgess had put the hosts ahead in the opening 45, but strikes from Kevin Phillips (2) and Ishmael Miller earned the Baggies a big three points on their way to securing the Championship title that year. 

One for the stattos

Albion have a strong recent record against the Seasiders with seven victories to their name in the 10 meetings this century. 

Blackpool's only triumph against the Baggies in 90 minutes during that time was a 2-1 success at Bloomfield Road in the Premier League 13 years ago. 

The overall head-to-head record sees Albion on 44 wins, Blackpool on 31, with 17 draws being played out too. 

Peter Odemwingie scored twice in Albion's dramatic 3-2 win against Tuesday's opponents in January 2011
