Pool are looking for their second away win of the season at the New Den where Millwall are unbeaten so far this season.

Millwall Team News:

Millwall will be missing Lenny Pidgeley was sent off in the Cheltenham game last week for handball. Boss Nigel Spackman is able to call upon new signing Danny Senda and Liam Trotter. Senda signed from Wycombe and Trotter on loan from Ipswich

Pidgeley will be replaced by Chris Day in goal for his full debut, strikers Ben May and Darren Byfield will miss the game through injury.

Player to watch: Danny Senda

Making his debut the midfielder will be looking to impress. Senda spent seven years at Wycombe clocking up 217 first team starts for the Chairboys.

Blackpool Team News:

Simon Grayson will find it hard to thrown new boy Ben Burgess into the first eleven with current strike force Andy Morrell and Scott Vernon doing the business at the moment. Danny Graham has returned to Middlesborough which means Grayson has the same squad to select from that he had last week for the Gillingham fixture.

Player to watch: Scott Vernon

Four goals in three games is a great statistic and with the arrival of Ben Burgess at the club the forward will have to continue that form to retain his place upfront.
