Sunderland vs Blackpool (By: Naisus)
Hello all.. My second match for today comes from the England League 1 and it is the one between Sunderland and Blackpool. Two former Premier league teams, and two teams with the same ambition at the moment, to come back as soon as soon as possible to the Championship. Both of these squads have some good players ( for this leagues style of playing), and both of them are in solid form.Yes, not too many goals on their matches recently, but i believe that the pressure for points here should explode in the second half.
Sunderland are a famous club, a really old club (1879 founded) and their fan base is solid. They do not deserve to play in this rank, but some bad financial management and really bad decisions with the players they bought, resulted with this. Now, they have no choice. Their fans expect them to come back immediatelly in the Championship.. They are doing well at the moment,they are well in the playoffs positions, but with some matches less played than the first duo. If they manage to make good results on those matches, the first position will be in their hands.Their best scorer Maya ( a great young player ) left for Bordeux, but they have Grigg, Mcgeady,Leadbitter.. They have a good defence, but not a great one, cause some of the goals they concede are as a result of missunderstanding of the players, so no great chemistry there. Anyway, i expect them to score a couple of goals here at least to satisfy their fans and to continue the fight in order to prove that this league is beneath them.
Blackpool is in similar position, but no way near the greatness and importance of Sunderland. They are in good form and they should challenge Doncaster for that playoff spot,although Doncaster has a slightly better roster in my opinion. In this league, the fighting spirit comes first, and if the fans recognize that you have a lot of it, they can carry you on places on which your quality could never get you.. Delfouneso is for sure their best player, although i think it is cause the style suits him. They could score here with ease , hopefully in the second half..
All in all, a good match is to be expected. Sunderland scores always when they play at home, and even though sometimes they only score one, i believe it will be more than that this time. Blackpool will fight thats for sure, and although both of these teams have solid defences, as i said earlier, none of them is great in my opinion (football is not just statistics).. No matter how the first half comes, i believe in an open match in the second one, and over 1.5 goalsin total scored in the second part.. Good luck
