Blackpool are looking to make their way back up the football pyramid and they find themselves sitting in the play-off places in League One. Clearly there’s still some way to go before the season draws to a close, however the Seasiders have got things off to a decent start with 20 points collected from their opening twelve games. The problem has been Blackpool’s inability to convert draws into wins, the side winning five and drawing five of their twelve outings thus far. This has held them back in their quest to climb into the top-three and while they sit level on points with third-placed Fleetwood Town as things stand, they will be eager to leapfrog their local rivals by clinching all three points when Rotherham United come to town this weekend.

Rotherham United have been very much a yo-yo side in recent seasons with two relegations from the Championship and one promotion in between. While their last drop into League One two seasons ago proved to be a brief one, they are showing little signs of the fight which earned them promotion last time around and they currently sit in the bottom half of the table with just fifteen points collected from their ten league games. The Millers have been very much a mixed bag of late with two wins, two draws and two defeats from their last six League One outings, however their dismal away form gives us a hint of the likely outcome at Bloomfield Road this weekend and we’ll be siding with this form to continue on Saturday afternoon, William Hill Bookmakers going 6/4 on Blackpool to win.
