Burnley will be looking to win the game on Saturday

Burnley host Blackpool at Turf Moor in the EFL Championship on Saturday, with both sides having had similar starts to their season.

Burnley are currently 12th in the league, one point behind their opponents. Vincent Kompany's side are winless in their last three games and will be going into the game off the back of a 1-1 draw against Hull City last time out. They will hope to turn things around with a win against Blackpool this weekend.

Blackpool are currently ninth in the league, one point off the top six. Michael Appleton's side have been in inconsistent form of late, having won only two of their last five games across all competitions. They will look to bounce back with a win against Burnley on Saturday.
