Blackpool kicked off the Championship nine days ago with a 1-0 win at Hull City, with Gary Taylor-Fletcher scoring a later winner and the Tangerines will be hoping to follow this up with another victory against a Peterborough team that were promoted through the play-offs last season.

Ian Holloway won’t be too bothered that his team were knocked out of the Carling Cup by Sheffield Wednesday on Thursday, with his Blackpool side 4/5 (bet365 – £200 free bets) to claim all three points against opponents that were also triumphant in their first game, with Posh having come from a goal down to beat Crystal Palace.

Darren Ferguson knew that he would lose the services of Craig Mackail-Smith in the summer, although the visitors might be the ones that can play the most freely at Bloomfield Road and they are 7/2 (Ladbrokes – £50 free bet) to enjoy a dream start and make it a cool six points from two games.

Even so, Blackpool have got lots of attacking threats, including veteran forward Kevin Phillips (11/2 Paddy Power) who hit the post at the KC Stadium, while Taylor-Fletcher is 15/2 (bet365) to open the scoring for the second game running.

Two divisions separated these teams last season, although both had a reputation for scoring and conceding bucketloads of goals and it may well be the case that the net bulges several times on Sunday. Over 2.5 Goals is a 3/5 chance with bet365, although it could be worth backing Over 3.5 at 7/4 with Stan James.
