Two teams in good form meet at Bloomfield Road in Monday night’s feast of action, when a high-flying Blackpool entertain Gillingham in what looks an exciting clash between two League One promotion hopefuls. The Tangerines have been a strong force in League One recently, going unbeaten in their last 12 league games and winning seven. Some of those victories have been against a few of the top teams in the English third tier in the form of Peterborough United, Portsmouth, and Charlton Athletic and their win on Good Friday over Swindon took them to sixth, a point clear in a play-off place.
Gillingham are in a good vein of form themselves, unbeaten in their last five league games in which they’ve won three. It leaves the Gills two points adrift of their opponents on Monday, with the chance to leapfrog them with a win. Whilst Steve Evans’ side have done well in recent weeks, Blackpool look too hot to handle at the minute and if the likes of Sullay Kaikai and Jerry Yates are on fire again, Neil Critchley’s men are in with a huge chance of claiming three points.
The odds are 7/2 for Blackpool to win and both teams to get on the scoresheet.
