‍Blackpool v Queens Park Rangers, League Cup, Tuesday, 25 September, 2018, Bloomfield Road, KO 7.45pm

It's cup action for the Seasiders as they face QPR in the third round of the Carabao Cup.

QPR had been on a mini-revival under Steve McClaren but Norwich put an end to this on Saturday. The west Londoners had taken 10 points from four games heading into the match but Steve McClaren's side suffered their fifth defeat of the league campaign despite putting the visitors under late pressure.

These types of games always represent how difficult it is for Blackpool fans at present. On one hand you want the club to do well but on the other you want the club to avoid a huge pay day at one of the top clubs.

Head-to-head

  • Blackpool have won only one of their last 20 matches against QPR in all competitions (D8 L11), a 1-0 victory in the Championship in December 2007 under manager Simon Grayson.
  • Although this is the first League Cup tie between Blackpool and QPR, they have met in cup competition previously, with the Hoops eliminating the Tangerines in the FA Cup in both the 1981-82 and 1989-90 campaigns.
  • Blackpool have only reached the fourth round of the League Cup in one of their last 45 seasons prior to this one, doing so in the 2007-08 season.
  • QPR have not won a League Cup third-round tie since 2008-09 when they beat Aston Villa - that season is the only time in their last 22 campaigns they've reached the fourth round.
  • QPR manager Steve McClaren has progressed from each of his last four away League Cup ties, with this his first since October 2014 when he was Derby manager, a 5-2 win at Fulham.

How many away fans?

Difficult one to say. I would predict 700 but a wild guess.

Team News

Blackpool boss Terry McPhillips could rotate his starting line-up in a quest for goals in Tuesday's Carabao Cup clash with QPR.

Armand Gnanduillet could be in line to start up front after coming off the bench in the goalless League One draw with Luton on Saturday.

Defender Donervon Daniels will miss out as he serves the second match of his three-game suspension after being sent off in the 1-0 win at Plymouth. Captain Jimmy Ryan remains a long-term absentee with knee trouble.

Midfielder Geoff Cameron could be restored to QPR's starting XI for the trip. The 33-year-old Stoke loanee remained an unused substitute in Saturday's 1-0 home Championship loss to Norwich, having played the full 90 minutes in the 2-0 win over Millwall.

Angel Rangel remains a doubt with a groin injury, having missed out against Norwich. Darnell Furlong (knee), midfielder Sean Goss (back) are doubts, with Olamide Shodipo and Grant Hall longer-term absentees.

‍Maybe the protest was by the sponsors over the fact they have wasted their money?

Sounds like spearing deserved his goal. Ran the show by all accounts. Early doors but starting to sound half decent. Fuck off Owen.

‍Always difficult to tell from short clips but Spearing looks a shrewd signing. I've read a few times oppostion fans saying he ran the show from midfield.
