League One side Blackpool have managed to acquire the services of young Paudie O’Connor from Leeds United on a season-long loan deal. The 20-year-old centre-back made his first-team debut for the Peacocks against Sunderland in April this year and he most-recently penned a new contract before joining the Seasiders.

Speaking to the club’s official website, he said:“I’ve had a nice week of getting a new deal at Leeds and then getting the opportunity to come to a great club like Blackpool. I’m really excited to get in, meet the lads and get training. I’m looking forward to getting a full season of first-team football under my belt, hopefully.”

Blackpool manager Gary Bowyer admitted a sense of frustration over his side’s performance against Gillingham despite picking up a 3-0 win. The Seasiders dominated the proceedings during the first period and goals from Kyle Vassell and Nathan Delfouneso saw them secure a 2-0 lead prior to the interval.

However, following the break, Jay Spearing failed to convert a penalty to finish the game and this offered Gillingham the initiative to put pressure, though they could not capitalise in the form of a goal. Eventually, the game was put to bed by substitute Kelvin Mellor in the 83rd minute but Bowyer felt his players could have killed the match much earlier.

Blackpool manager Gary Bowyer has admitted that Blackpool have had to change their playing style, especially at home to the deteriorating nature of the Bloomfield Road pitch. The Seaside outfit earned a glowing reputation during the opening months of the campaign, where their brilliant passing game coincided with their storming start to the season.


However, since the winter period begun, the surface at Bloomfield Road has taken its toll, and this has restricted the team from passing the ball with the same level of efficiency. Bowyer’s side are now winless in their last 10 matches in front of their home supporters, but this has not hampered their away form with back-to-back wins at Wigan Athletic and Portsmouth.

Gary Bowyer Happy with Back-to-Back Wins from Blackpool

Blackpool managed a 2-1 over Leyton Orient to only secure their second away win of the season.


The team has been extremely strong at Bloomfield Road after only one defeat, which came at the start of the season. Since then, they have been largely dependent on their home form in order to remain in contention for the play-off places. Manager Gary Bowyer was looking to improve the club’s form away from home in order to make them a force to reckon with in the League Two. The club has slipped a lot from the highflying days of the Premier League.

Blackpool manager Gary Bowyer is hoping to have some of his injured strikers back in contention for the game against Wycombe this weekend.


Blackpool are having an injury crisis up front with as many as four strikers being unable to play due to various injuries.

Danny Philliskirk,Kyle Vassell, Jack Redshaw, and Jamille Matt are the current injury concerns plaguing the club. The treatment table also welcomed midfielder Colin Daniel after his injury in the 1-1 draw with Barnet a few days ago. However, managerBowyer says that the club has good news on this regard since the injury is not as big as initially feared.
Mark Cullen is the only fit forward at the disposal ofBowyer. He scored the goal in the game against Barnet but Blackpool were unable to come away with all three points due to a late equaliser fromJohn Akinde. After having managed an opening day victory against Exeter City, Blackpool have been unable to capitalise on the good form shown in pre-season. They suffered a 2-1 loss against Morecambe in the previous game before this draw. The club need to return to winning ways soon and the home match against Wycombe Wanderers could just help them in this regard.
