With the Seasiders dropping back into the bottom four on Tuesday night, Saturdays game away at Bournmouth may be the perfect game to bounce straight back out again, and progress up the table. They have a good record at The Fitness First Staduim and last year won comfortable. Hopefully the run can continue…….. but they did lose the reverse fixture in December.
Bournmouth Team News:
Aaron Brown should make his debut for the Cherries but Shaun Cooper and Eddie Howe are missing. Dani Rodrigues and Steve Fletcher are both likely to be absent with hamstring injuries.
Out: Shaun Cooper (Achilles)
Eddie Howe (knee)
Doubts: Dani Rodrigues and Steve Fletcher (hamstring)
Player to watch: James Hayter
Scored a hat-trick at Bloomfield road three months ago, which proves why he is one of the most consistant scorers in the division.
Expect him to score.
Blackpool Team News:
Andy Taylor will make his debut and Tony Butler and Neil Wood return from suspension.
Jason Wilcox is suspended whilst Keigan Parker will be fit and Marc Joseph is hoping to shrug off his injury. Phil Doughty and Danny Coid remain sidelined.
Out: Jason Wilcox (suspension)
Danny Coid (ankle)
Phil Doughty (leg)
Doubt: Marc Joseph (hamstring)
Player to watch: Neil Wood
After his ridiculous sending off at Victoria Park, the midfield hasn’t looked the same, and he will be hoping to show the travelling support that he’s the man to partner Marcus Bean.
