              Blackpool vs Cambridge United Preview, Tips & Stats

              Bloomfield Road hosts Blackpool and Cambridge United this Saturday in League One. Blackpool look to close in on play-off football whereas Cambridge aim to increase the gap between themselves and the relegation zone.

              Blackpool currently sit ninth in League One after 41 games. The Tangerines have 17 wins, ten draws and 14 losses, leaving them on 61 points, six points from the Play-offs.

              In their last five games, Blackpool have one win, two draws and two losses.

              The visit from Portsmouth saw Blackpool fail to register a single shot on target and with Jordan Rhodes sent off in the first half, Blackpool held on for a 0 - 0 draw. Blackpool bounced back against Northampton Town the next time out. Matthew Pennington scored the only goal of the game in the 55th minute to give Blackpool the 1 - 0 win.

              However, the trip to Wigan saw Blackpool on the wrong side of the 1 - 0 scoreline. Despite having two more shots on target than Wigan, The Latics scored with their only shot on target through Scott Smith for the 1 - 0 win. It was another 1 - 0 loss for Blackpool, this time against high-flying Derby County. Ebou Adams found the back of the net in the 40th minute as Blackpool only managed one shot on target.

              The last time out for Blackpool was against Wycombe. Blackpool had four more shots on target than Wycombe but were unable to convert a single one and had to settle for another 0 - 0 draw.

              Cambridge, on the other hand, currently sit 19th in League One. In 40 games, The Us have 12 wins, nine draws and 19 losses which leaves them on 45 points, seven points above the relegation zone.

              In their last five games in all competitions, Cambridge have two wins, one draw and two losses.

              Elias Kachunga opened the scoring early for Cambridge, converting the only shot of the game for Cambridge. However, with just ten minutes to go, Jon Guthrie found the back of the net to grab a 1 - 1 draw for Northampton Town. The trip to Lincoln was one to forget for Cambridge. Braces from Jack Moylan and Joe Taylor along with goals from Timothy Eyoma and Dylan Duffy gave Lincoln the 6 - 0 win.

              It was another big loss for Cambridge on the road, this time against Reading. Sam Smith opened the scoring early and Femi Azeez doubled the lead before halftime. Lewis Wing and Kelvin Ehibhatiomhan then added to the tally in the second half to give Reading the 4 - 0 win. Cambridge bounced back against Barnsley. An own goal from Mael de Gevigney and a goal from Gassan Ahadme secured a 2 - 0 win for Cambridge, despite having just 28% of the possession.

              The most recent outing for Cambridge was against Wigan. A brace from Ahadme gave Cambridge the 2 - 0 lead just before the hour mark and despite the goal from Wigan’s Martial Godo, a goal from Danny Andrew grabbed a 3 - 1 win for The Us.

              Blackpool and Cambridge have met 12 times in their histories, with the first meeting coming back in 1993. Nothing separates the two sides, with both Blackpool and Cambridge having four wins to their names, and the other four games also ending in a draw.
