Blackpool slipped further in trouble when they went down 3-1 to Reading last weekend with a 90th minute Sonny Carey goal scant consolation. The defeat was their second in a row and means they sit second bottom and four points from safety going into the weekend.

Their main hope for survival is their current home form which has seen them go five unbeaten here including a standout 4-1 defeat of Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup here. In the league they are four without defeat here although three of these have finished all-square.

Burnley saw off Fleetwood in midweek to book their place in the last eight and their reward was an away game with Man City which will be an emotional return for manager Vincent Kompany. In the league, the Clarets are 12 points clear of second and a remarkable 19 ahead of third at this stage.

Their form is sensational with no defeat in 15 in all competitions and their last league defeat coming back in November. On the road, in the second-tier it is five victories and one draw from their last six games played as they look unstoppable.

Blackpool vs Burnley Match Stats

Given the gulf in class between these sides taking an away victory is a no-brainer the question is just how to get with the visitors. The last six Burnley away matches in the Championship have gone under 3.5 goals and the Clarets have won five of these. With Blackpool sure to battle gamely under 3.5 goals and an away victory appeals here.

Ashley Barnes and Nathan Tella are the two who lead the line for Burnley and backing both players to score at anytime looks worth a little interest. Ashley Barnes has two in four and Nathan Tella three in five and will fancy their chances here against a leaky Blackpool backline. The Tangerines have managed to keep just two clean sheets in their last 12.
