The penultimate game of the season could see Pool mathematically secure Championship football next year.

Plymouth Team News:

Plymouth have nothing to play for after their attempt at a play-off spot failed some weeks ago. Sitting in tenth spot it`s impossible for them to move into the plays being seven points behind Crystal Palace.

Plymouth boss Paul Sturrock may change his team around with Chris Clarke and Jermaine Easter looking to come back into the team.

Player to watch: David Norris

Plymouth lost their star man this season when Ebanks-Blake moved to Wolves, he had 11 goals to his name before the move. That means that there isn`t really any star players in the line up. David Norris does stand out with 5 goals from midfield.

Blackpool Team News:

Claus Jorgensen and Paul Dickov showed no reactions after the Wednesday game, the pair had sat out previous matches with injury. It may be a chance for Grayson to field Grant Holt and Joe Martin who have let to start again after coming in on loan.

Player to watch: Paul Dickov

A great goal last week and a great performance. The goal was his sixth since moving to Pool on loan and it may help to secure a longer contract, although it has been rumored that the Scot may move downunder in the summer.

  • 2-1 to the Mighty is a bit of hopeful thinking in my opinion. Personally I think it will be a score draw….Just enough. 🙂

  • David Norris left Argyle 4 months ago and joined Ipswich, so how can he be the player to watch? What about Halmosi with 9 goals from midfield. More research required.
