Unbeaten in four, Blackpool take on Oldham away from home tomorrow.
The Tangerines have been in good form, beating Gillingham 1-0 in their previous match and face an Oldham side who have struggled this season and currently sit 22nd.
A win for Pool tomorrow would be huge, but Oldham will have their sights set on survival and given Blackpool’s inconsistency and poor form away this season who knows what the result will be?
The latics picked up a good win against fellow strugglers Shrewsbury last time out and manager John Sheridan will be looking to build on that.
Neil McDonald told the official site: ‘We`ve showed that we can compete on a regular basis and be more consistent now, and that`s what we must do over the next few games. It`s a good chance to put points on the board, but we`ll deal with Oldham first.’
John Sheridan told the latics official site: ‘We`re preparing for a tough game against Blackpool on the back of a good performance against Shrewsbury 10 days ago. We`ve got to carry that form into the remaining games. I always talk about consistency and if I can get that out of the team then we`ll get the results we are after.’
Oldham Team News:
Connor Brown is suspended for the game but Cameron Dummigan has recovered frm his knock in time.
Player to watch: Dominic Poleon
The striker is Oldham’s main threat after the Seasiders pinched Danny Philliskirk from the Latics and Poleon has scored 5 times this season.
Blackpool Team News:
Lloyd Jones and Henry Cameron remain out but other than that, McDonald has a full squad to choose from.
Hayden White and Jim McAlister will most likely return and Philliskirk could be moved back up front with Jack Redshaw.
Player to watch: Mark Yeates
Yeates returns to his former club as in decent form, winning the penalty last game and has been a welcome addition to the Seasiders given the previous shortage in the wing positions.
