After the brilliant start to the league campaign against Leicester, Simon Grayson`s men now turn their attentions to Huddersfield Town in the Carling Cup.




Blackpool Team News:

It looks like Larry will change his pack, Evans, Vernon, Hills, Jorgensen, Burgess and Coid looking to start with a view to retaining a place in the side for the Bristol City league game.

Michael Flynn may also be the match squad after missing Saturday’s opener due to injury.

Player to watch: Shaun Barker

Not sure if he`ll start but Barker was once again brilliant at right back. Going forward he looked a threat and defensively he bossed at the back.

Huddersfield Team News:

Town will also make some changes from the side that beat Yeovil on Saturday 1-0, Beckett with the gaol. Jon Worthington should start ahead of Holdworth, but former Pool loanee Chris Brandon may have to step aside for Worthington who has been injured.

Big Danny Cadamarteri will miss out again through injury so Beckett will partner either Schofield or Booth.

Player to watch: Chris Brandon

If he keeps his place in the side he`ll be looking to impress the home crowd. A move in the summer couldn`t be agreed between the two parties, and instead Taylor-Fletcher make the move to the seaside.
