Theyve not been flawless, but Blackpool have made a good habit of creating that bit more than theyve given away, as their home expected goal difference of +1.9 suggests, while theyve rarely had an issue getting the ball in the net, scoring seven in five at Bloomfield Road. Whats more, their overall home performances have been respectable. Prior to their draw at ABAX Stadium, Blackpool were outplayed by a very strong Luton side at home, though they proved that theyre tough to beat by digging deep and grinding out a 0-0.

Fortunately for Boxing Days hosts, theyre capable of creating plenty on their own patch, though theyve not been the most prolific in front of goal. Rochdale are creating a positive 1.67 expected goals for at home, which does tell us that theyve been unlucky to not score a few more, but as theyre averaging just a single goal at Spotland, it also tells us that they lack end-product in terms of finishing. 12-goal Ian Henderson is one player who rarely struggled when it comes to applying the finishing touch, though since hes scored seven of Dales 11 home goals this season, its fair to say that the hosts are struggling if their scorer-in-chief isnt firing.
