Fulham vs Blackpool in the Championship on Jan 29. 2022 + Odds & Prediction

Fulham vs Blackpool in the Championship on Jan 29. 2022 + Odds & Prediction

Claiming what was an action-packed 3-2 win away at Stoke last weekend, Fulham will be desperate to build off of their recent purple patch when they return to Craven Cottage on Saturday afternoon.

Storming their way to the top of the Championship table and enjoying a five-match winning run across all competitions, Blackpool should be bracing themselves for a tough test in west London.

While Saturday's guests might have found a Championship boost since opening 2022, Blackpool have continued to show some worrying issues away from Bloomfield Road.

Kindly note that all information in this preview, including whether or not the event will take place, is subject to change due to Covid-19.

Over 2.5 goals

Continuing to gain a reputation for their remarkable outcomes since opening the New Year, neutrals from across the Championship will be hoping that Fulham vs Blackpool produces another lively affair this weekend.

With Marco Silva's men seeing each of their last four Championship outings finish with at least five goals at either end of the pitch, Saturday's opponents have also seen fireworks when they have met in west London.

It should be noted, with three of the last four meetings between Fulham and Blackpool at Craven Cottage finishing with over 2.5 goals, a similar outcome here can be found priced at 8/11.

Fulham form, squad news, opinion

While Fulham might have endured a five-match winless run when signing off 2021, it appears that Marco Silva's squad have really put those issues behind them since opening the New Year.

Last seen claiming a thrilling 3-2 win away at Stoke seven days ago, the one-time Everton boss has seen his side win each of their last five matchups across all competitions.

Holding a commanding five-point buffer at the top of the table, the Cottagers have also gained a fearsome reputation for their remarkable displays in the final third.

With attacking starlet and Liverpool target Fabio Carvalho now bagging four goals in his last three Championship appearances, Fulham have scored a stunning 22 strikes in their last four second-tier outings.

Now tipped as a landslide pick to book an immediate Premier League return this season, Silva's side have also continued to power on without one of their midfield stars.

Still away at this year's Africa Cup of Nations with the Ivory Coast, Fulham will once again be without Jean Micheal Seri when they return to Craven Cottage on Saturday afternoon.

Blackpool form, squad news, opinion

Making their Championship return via the play-offs last summer, fans around Bloomfield Road should be largely impressed by what has been a successful campaign so far for Blackpool.

However, while Neil Critchley's men might have endured a torrid run of form between November and December, Saturday's guests do appear to have put those issues behind them.

While a heavily-altered Blackpool might have seen their FA Cup adventure come to a shock end against League Two outfit Hartlepool on January 8th, they have secured back-to-back Championship victories.

Last seen claiming a 1-0 win away at Millwall, Critchley will now be desperate for his side to find a much-needed boost away from Bloomfield Road.

Losing each of their last four away fixtures across all competitions, Saturday's guests could once again be without a host of first-team stars in west London.

The likes of long-term absentees James Husband (hamstring), Sonny Carey (metatarsal), Grant Ward (Achilles), Matty Virtue (knee) and Chris Maxwell (thigh) should all miss out at Craven Cottage this weekend.

History

While Fulham vs Blackpool might have been a showdown once contested in the Premier League just over a decade ago, Saturday's opponents have only faced off a handful of times since their first meeting back in 1998.

Landing a shock 1-0 win when they welcomed the leading promotion contenders to Bloomfield Road back on September 11th, it is Blackpool who hold a shock eye-catching record over recent times.

In fact, including FA Cup success back in 2014 as they booked their spot in the last 16, Blackpool have lost just one of their previous five meetings against Fulham across all competitions.

About the Venue

While Fulham might have briefly seen their attendances at Craven Cottage get reduced as they set up their bumper new Riverside Stand, the west London stadium is still regarded to be one of England's most historic.

With Fulham's first game at Craven Cottage way back in 1896, there is no doubt that Marco Silva will be hoping that he is backed by another vocal support when Blackpool arrives in the capital on Saturday afternoon.

In terms of COVID-19 protocol in England, Vaccine Passports will be a requirement of entry and these regulations are set to be in place until the end of January at least.

Conclusion

Appearing to have put their brief December blip behind them, there is no doubt that Fulham will only be looking to extend their buffer at the top of the Championship table when they return to Craven Cottage here.

Winning each of their last four Championship contests and bagging a stunning 22 strikes on that purple patch, a Blackpool side who have shown some extended issues on the road should be in for another stern test in west London.

Despite securing back-to-back Championship wins against Millwall and Hull, Neil Critchley's men have lost each of their last four away matchups across all competitions, including a shock FA Cup defeat at the hands of League Two side Hartlepool.
