          Blackpool vs. Burnley Prediction, Tips & Stats

          For our Blackpool vs. Burnley prediction, we're going for a 2-0 win for the away side.

          Two sides at opposite ends of the Championship table meet this weekend as Blackpool host Burnley in a Lancashire derby.

          Blackpool currently sit 23rd in the Championship with seven wins, ten draws and seventeen losses from thirty-four games this season.

          The Tangerines have struggled in the Championship this season as they find themselves looking increasingly likely to be relegated to League One having languished in the relegation zone for a number of months now.

          They enter this game amidst a poor run of form having won one, drawn one and lost three of their last five matches in the league.

          Most recently, The Seasiders fell to a comprehensive 3-1 defeat at Reading in a result that will have been deflating for squad morale.

          Their home record, in fairness, has been pretty decent lately having won two and drawn three of their last five matches on home soil in all competitions.

          Blackpool sit just four points from safety but are looking overwhelmingly likely to be relegated to League One as they're finding wins extremely difficult to come by. They're in with a fighting chance but they need to improve drastically; unfortunately a home game against Burnley is unlikely the place to see their form turn for the better.

          Burnley currently sit top of the Championship with twenty-two wins, ten draws and two losses from thirty-four games this season.

          The Clarets have been sensational in the Championship this season and are almost certain to secure promotion back to the Premier League this season given they have a nineteen point gap over Middlesbrough in 3rd. The only question that remains is whether it will be as Champions and if it'll be via a league record points total.

          They enter this game in typically strong form having won three and drawn one of their last four matches in all competitions, the most recent of which was a 1-0 win over Fleetwood Town in the FA Cup 5th round.

          Their away record has been strong of late too, with The Clarets winning three and drawing two of their last five matches on the road in all competitions.

          These two sides played out a thrilling 3-3 draw when they met in the Championship back in August, but given Blackpool's decline since then a repeat result here is unlikely.

          Burnley are looking to take another step towards Premier League football and as they face a side who look destined for relegation three points shouldn't be too much of an issue here.
