Preston V Blackpool

After almost 8 years since the last meeting between the sides the East Lancashire derby is back and it’s only a couple of days away. Early teams news is that ex-pool star Brett Ormerod will miss the match, Blackpool have no new injury worries, and hopefully Bartosz Slusarski will be fit, there is yet to be any team news on Keith Southern who missed the Scunthorpe match.

It’s hard to describe what a Preston V Blackpool match means, pride and the ability to stand up load an proud for the week. I’m fortunate to only know one Preston fan, but for those who work or go to uni / collage behing enemy line the win will that little bit sweeter. I’m sure the players will be up for it, it’s sure going to be tasty.

Macken :Give me you shirt marvin !

The old bill presence at the game is set to be high but with the 12:00 start should reduce the ammount of pints sunk before the match but there is sure to be the odd scuffle! The drums have been banned for both sides due to heath and safety of the drummers standing up. All that will do is make the Blackpool fans sing more. Can’t wait…….
