Pool look to get some much needed points on the board on Tuesday night against Carlisle United

Carlisle United Team News:

Carlisle have had a great start to the season despite the change of manager from Paul Simpson to Neil McDonald in the summer. They are undefeated at Brunton Park winning four and drawing one. Sitting in fifth place in the league the Cumbrians will be a tough outlet to overcome. Midfielder Paul Murray is the only injury doubt with a knee problem.

Player to watch: Kevin Gall

After the departure of Michael Bridges to Hull in the summer for £350k Gall has managed to hit the net four times this season. Gall started his career at Newcastle, moving onto Bristol Rovers and then Yeovil. He moved this summer from Yeovil on a free.

Blackpool Team News:

Once again Simon Grayson will be able to select from the same 11 with no new injury doubts, whether he will do is up to him.

Player to watch: Wes Hoolahan

Once again Hoolahan has been impressing and should be looked to take advantage of the wide pitch at Brunton Park.
