The Seasiders will be looking to climb out of the relegation zone tonight as they take on 13th placed Millwall.

Pool are unbeaten in the last 4, winning three, and managed to hold high flying Coventry to a draw away from home last time out.

Millwall have improved somewhat since their poor start to the season and are only 4 points off the play offs.

Vital Quotes:

Neil McDonald told the official site: ‘We`ve stuck to the formation and with personnel, and we`re getting our just rewards for that. Points give you confidence and performances encourage you to do better, and we`re getting both at the minute which is great.’

Lions assistant manager Dave Livermore told the Millwall official site: ‘Blackpool will give us a different test, but we always we do our homework and will set the team up accordingly.’

Adding: ‘It’s going to be a tough one. We have watched a few of their games, they are organised and in some respects will be tougher than Swindon were on Saturday. All we can do is look after ourselves, make sure we are ready, make sure we are prepared and hopefully get a positive result.’

Blackpool Team News:

Lloyd Jones is still out with an ankle injury but David Norris and Martin Paterson should be fit to play this evening after missing the last game.

McDonald opted with Jose Cubero in midfield against Coventry and after a decent performance he could play again tonight.

Hayden White signed for Blackpool on loan from Bolton yesterday and he could be in the squad to make his debut.

Player to watch: Jim McAlister

The midfielder’s work rate in midfield has been key to Blackpool’s upturn in results and his performances of late have been very impressive.

Millwall Team News:

Millwall boss Neil Harris has no new injury concerns and is set to name the same side that won the last game against Swindon.

Player to watch: Aiden O’Brien

Millwall’s top goalscorer this season with 4 goals, O’Brien is a dangerous player but he will have to get past a Blackpool defence who have only conceded 1 goal in their last 4 games.

Match Facts & Stats

Pool have won their last 2 home games against Millwall including a 1-0 win last season.

Match Prediction:

The Seasiders have been good at home lately so I’ll go for a 1-0 home win with Mark Cullen to get the goal.
