OPPOSITION MANAGER

David Dunn - The former Blackburn Rovers midfielder was installed as caretaker boss on February 12 after the dismissal of Simon Grayson. He had a brief taste of management with Oldham Athletic between September 2015 and January 2016 and has been in charge at Bloomfield Road for two games, a defeat at Bristol Rovers and a draw at AFC Wimbledon.

HEADLINE NEWS

Goalkeeper Chris Maxwell was delighted to finally keep a clean sheet at AFC Wimbledon, hoping the result has “stopped the rot” at Blackpool (Official Website)

David Dunn says his players “gave their all” in a 0-0 draw at AFC Wimbledon – the club’s first clean sheet in three months (Official Website)

Blackpool will play a game of patience when it comes to appointing a new manager with chief executive Ben Mansford claiming: “We want the right choice for the long term” (Blackpool Gazette)

WHO MAKES THEM TICK?

At the back: James Husband – No nonsense left-sided defender who is on loan for the season from Norwich City. Played in a back three at the weekend.

In the middle: Liam Feeney – Former Wanderers winger who has been virtually ever-present for the Tangerines and has 12 assists to his name.

Up front: Gary Madine – Bolton fans need no introduction to Madine, who top-scored in the club’s promotion season in 2016/17. Top target man.

THEY SAID IT

“As you know, football changes very quickly. But if I’m here, I’ll try and set the team up to win a game and do my best. As I’ve already stated, I don’t want the job.

“I enjoy coaching and I enjoy being on the grass, but a lot of the other stuff off the pitch and dealing with that, I’m a football person and at this moment in time I feel like I just want to concentrate on that.

“Who knows if I’d stay on? If a new manager comes in and wants to bring in his own backroom staff, then at least I can hold my head up and the club knows I’ve done all I can to help them” – David Dunn says he will stay at Blackpool as long as he is needed.

HEAD-TO-HEAD HISTORY

Played – 105

Wanderers wins – 41

Draws – 31

Blackpool wins - 33

BOOKIES’ ODDS

Bolton win – 19/4, draw – 3/1, Blackpool win – 3/5

REFEREE

Paul Marsden - Lancashire referee who has given out 87 yellow cards and one red in his 26 games this season. His last encounter with Wanderers came on September 17 last year as Keith Hill’s side drew 0-0 at home against Oxford United.

FIXTURE TRENDS

Wanderers have not won a game at Bloomfield Road since 1977 when Frank Worthington and Neil Whatmore scored en route to promotion to the top flight.

Bolton have, however, lost just one of their last 10 meetings with Blackpool – that coming in the League Cup in 2016. Kaiyne Woolery and Jamie Proctor scored in a 4-2 defeat.

Since December 13, Bolton have actually gained more points than Blackpool in the league. Keith Hill’s side have nine from 14 games, whereas the Tangerines have six from 12.

TRIVIA

Given The Blackpool Tower’s height, the number of surrounding buildings and the fact that it is built with 2,500 tonnes of iron and five million bricks, there were concerns about safety if it were to collapse. But, thanks to a unique design, in the unlikely event that The Blackpool Tower ever did fall down, it would fall into the sea rather than the buildings around it.

TICKETS

Adults - £19, over-65s - £17, under-22s - £17, under-17s - £9, under-12s – £4, under-5s - free (with a paying adult and not available online)

FIXTURES

Blackpool v Wanderers, Coventry City v Rotherham United, Oxford United v Accrington Stanley, Portsmouth v MK Dons, Shrewsbury Town v Tranmere Rovers, Sunderland v Fleetwood Town.

Report: Blackpool vs. Bolton Wanderers

Bolton Wanderers suffered a heart-breaking defeat at Bloomfield Road after Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall snatched a last-gasp dramatic winner.

Kean Bryan’s first goal in a Wanderers shirt two minutes from time looked to have given Keith Hill’s men a deserved point after Connor Ryan’s first -half wonder strike gifted the hosts an early lead.

But the Tangerines had the final say when Dewsbury-Hall capitalised on Liam Feeney’s corner to give the hosts a maximum.

Keith Hill made three changes from the side that lost to MK Dons at the weekend with Joe Bunney, Kean Bryan and Chris O’Grady all returning to the starting XI. Brandon Fleming, Jacob Mellis and Daryl Murphy were named among the substitutes.

Wanderers were backed by a travelling contingent of over 1,000 vocal supporters making the short trip across Lancashire.

The hosts won an early corner after Wanderers skipper was on hand to clear a right sided cross off former Wanderer Liam Feeney from underneath his own cross bar.

The referee waved away a huge penalty appeal from the Tangerines after Nathan Delfouneso went down under a solid challenge from Toto Nsiala.

Blackpool took an early lead through Connor Ryan who unleashed a spectacular shot from 25 yards out which flew past Remi Matthews.

Ryan was looking for his second, but his free-kick was blocked by Dennis Politic after former Wanderer Gary Madine was brought down near the edge of the box by Bryan.

At the other end, Ali Crawford’s corner was met by the head of Bryan at the far post but the ball went wide of target.

Politic then went close when he was expertly picked out by O’Grady but the young Romanian’s effort from the edge of the box was narrowly off target.

Matty Virtue saw his dipping volley go narrowly over the bar when Blackpool broke at the other end.

Matthews held on to a powerful effort from Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall after the hosts poured forward.

Politic shaped up to shoot when Ethan Hamilton’s deflected pass fell kindly to him but some quick thinking by James Husband saw him steal possession just in the nick of time.

Feeney, who was raising plenty of questions on the flank, put in a dangerously looking cross towards the near post but Nisiala was able to turn away the ball for a corner.

Crawford and Lowe combined to forge a chance for O’Grady but the big striker could quite wrestle control of the ball.

Wanderers were starting to grow into the game as the game edged towards half time and Hamilton saw a drive go over the bar after some good hold-up play by O’Grady.

Politic had the ball in the back of the net but the referee had already blown up for a foul in the build up.

Daryl Murphy replaced O’Grady as the players entered the field for the second half.

Matthews was pressed into action to tip Virtue’s 20-yarder over the bar after the Blackpool man charged forward.

Crawford picked out Politic with a pinpoint pass put the Wanderers frontman could only volley wide after controlling with his chest.

Hill made his second change of the evening shortly afterwards with Joe Dodoo coming on for Bunney.

Chris Maxwell in the Blackpool goal made a spectacular save to keep out Daryl Murphy after the Irishman guided Politic’s low pass towards goal.

Buoyed by their bright start to the second half, Wanderers seemed to determined to get the equaliser.

Hamilton;s shot from distance went over the bar after he was picked out by Bryan’s pass.

Politic, Wanderers’ biggest attack threat on the evening, played a good one-two with Daryl Murphy befire seeing his angled-shot kept out by Maxwell.

Hamilton, once again, found himself with space to shoot after some smart build-up play, butt his effort went narrowly wide.

Luke Murphy then had an attempt on goal but his low shot from range went narrowly wide of target.

Daryl Murphy was desperately unfortunate not to get his side a deserved leveller when Dodoo’s cross was knocked down into his path by Politic, but the Irishman’s header was unable to find a way past Maxwell.

The home side broke quickly and Ronan shot over the bar after being played in by Feeney.

With eight minutes remaining, Hill made his third and final change with Melling coming on for Crawford.

Bryan’s late goal appeared to have given both sides a share of the spoils when he powered Dodoo’s cross past Maxwell.

But the lead didn’t last long when Dewsbury-Hall struck home in injury time.
