            Blackpool vs. Burton Albion Prediction, Tips & Stats

            League One new boys Blackpool begin life back in England's third tier with a game against Burton Albion at Bloomfield Road this weekend in their season opener.

            Blackpool were relegated from the Championship last season and they're coming into this campaign as one of the favourites for an immediate promotion back to England's second tier, generally regarded as one of the three outright favourites alongside Derby and Bolton.

            Neil Critchley has been reappointed as manager of The Tangerines following the dismissal of interim manager Stephen Dobbie at the end of last season and there's a lot of optimism around Critchley's return given he achieved promotion in his previous stint with the club back in 2020/21.

            After keeping the club in the Championship the following season Critchley departed to become assistant to Steven Gerrard at Aston Villa.

            Critchley was dealt a blow in the transfer market after losing forward Jerry Yates, who scored fourteen league goals last season, to Swansea City but The Seasiders have signed seven players so far including Oliver Norburn from Peterborough United, Kyle Joseph from Swansea City and Richard O'Donnell from Rochdale.

            Its been a pretty solid summer for a relegated side, then, and fans of The Tangerines will be optimistic regarding their chances coming into this campaign given they're led by the man who took them to the Championship just a few seasons ago.

            Burton Albion finished 15th in League One last season in what turned out to be quite a successful campaign.

            Burton started the season miserably and looked nailed on for relegation, but manager Dino Maamria took the reigns a few weeks into the campaign and drastically turned the side around, ultimately leading to a hard fought survival in League One.

            Maamria will continue in his post this season and he's overseen a busy transfer window this summer with ten new bodies coming his way including midfielder Kegs Chauke from Southampton, Jasper Moon from Barnsley and striker Cole Stockton on a free transfer from Morecambe, a proven goalscorer in this league that Burton will hope can help take them to the next level.

            They lost a few too, with the likes of Conor Shaughnessy departing for Portsmouth and Jonny Smith leaving for Wigan Athletic but all in all it's been a positive summer window for Maamria and co.

            Burton should be much stronger than they were last season but they still feel far off being strong enough to contest for the play-offs.

            A comfortable mid-table finish should be their floor, though, and they'll no doubt be interesting to follow throughout this campaign.

            For our Blackpool vs. Burton prediction, we're going for a 2-1 win for the home side.

            Blackpool Team News

            Summer additions Matthew Pennington, Albie Morgan and Oliver Norburn are all likely to be granted a place in the starting XI but striker Kyle Joseph may have to wait to make his first competitive start for The Tangerines.

            Instead, Shayne Lavery and Jake Beesley look set to spearhead the attack as Neil Critchley's men look to get off to a win.

            Burton Team News

            Burton's starting XI is likely to look alien in comparison to last season with many of their summer signings expect to be named on the starting team sheet.

            Jasper Moon and Jake Caprice seem likely to start in defence while Rekeem Harper and Steve Seddon should both feature in midfield.

            Up top Mason Bennett and Cole Stockton will be leading the line in what looks a very strong pairing.
