For our Swansea vs. Blackpool prediction, we're going for a 1-1 draw.
Two sides in poor form will lock horns in the Championship this weekend as Blackpool makes the trip to Wales to face Swansea City.
Swansea City currently sit 15th in the Championship with ten wins, nine draws and eleven losses from thirty games this season.
The Swans have had a fairly forgettable season so far as they've fluctuated between the lower end of the bottom half of the table and the fringe of the play-offs, but at this stage they look all but set for a mediocre mid-table finish.
They enter this game in the midst of a poor run of form, too, having drawn one and lost three of their last five games in all competitions.
In the league their form is equally dismal having won one, drawn one and lost three of their last five matches in the Championship.
Most recently, Swansea were put to the sword in a 3-0 battering away at 2nd place Sheffield United in a sobering game that exposed the disparity in quality.
Swansea's home form is unfortunately no more encouraging with the Welsh side having won one and lost four of their last five matches on home soil in all competitions.
Swansea are ten points clear of the relegation zone and are in no significant danger of relegation at the moment, but they need to pick up their form as they're worryingly sliding down the league table as the weeks pass by. A home game against Blackpool is the easiest fixture in the league calendar so they have no excuse not to win here.
Blackpool are currently rooted to the foot of the Championship table having won six, drawn ten and lost fourteen of their thirty games this season.
The Tangerines started this season decently but have been on a constant downward trajectory for months now and look all but certain to return to League One once again.
They enter this game having failed to win any of their last thirteen league matches and have drawn three and lost two of their last five in the Championship.
Most recently, Blackpool drew 0-0 with Rotherham United which represented a second straight draw after drawing 2-2 with Huddersfield Town the game prior.
Mick McCarthy replaced the departing Michael Appleton on January 19th and after losing 3-0 to 2nd place Middlesbrough in his opening game he's taken two points from his next two. They obviously drastically need to start winning if they are to avoid relegation, but there are maybe one or two signs that they have life in them yet.
