Blackpool has serious troubles before the match against Middlesbrough. They are out of form winning only once against relegation candidate Peterborough in the last 9 matches (1-3-5), and have only 16 players available, due to positive players on Covid 19 and injuries. Out of the squad are Ryan Wintle (17/0), Garbutt (14/0), Maxwell (13/0 first goalkeeper), Gabriel (13/0), James Reece (11/0), Connolly Callum (10/0), Carey (10/1), Owen Dale (7/1), Ward (4/0), and Stewart (3/0), while having another 4 positive players on coronavirus. From the moment when the board sacked coach Neil Warnock, Middlesbrough with the new coach Chris Wilder plays better (4-2-1), but also with more faith in their potential. Now they are in the playoff zone and will use the momentum in the home side to score an important victory.
