Blackpool are set to host Huddersfield Town on Tuesday night in EFL Championship football action.

Blackpool picked up their first win of the Championship campaign with a shock 1-0 victory over league leaders Fulham on Saturday. The Tangerines won the game with their only shot on target, a second-half strike from Josh Bowler.

Blackpool had failed to win any of their previous five Championship fixtures while also crashing out of the EFL Cup. Neil Critchley's men needed a confidence booster and got it with a hard-fought win over Fulham.

Huddersfield Town missed a chance to pick up a fourth consecutive league win as they bottled a 1-0 lead against Stoke on Sunday. Harry Tofolo gave Huddersfield Town the lead just after the interval before Jacob Brown equalized for Stoke City minutes later.

An own goal from Matthew Pearson later on in the game saw Stoke City pick up all three points.

Huddersfield Town now sit eighth in the Championship table with 10 points from six games. They will be looking to get back to winning ways when they travel to Blackpool on Tuesday.

Blackpool will be buoyed by their 1-0 victory over Fulham on Saturday. However, they had to hold on for the result and will need to put in better performances in future.

Huddersfield's run of three straight league wins ended with a 2-1 defeat to Stoke on Saturday. Despite that, we expect the visitors to return to winning ways when they face Blackpool on Tuesday.
