Tony Parkes has made two changes to the side which drew at Sheffield United in midweek.

The club moved swiftly to snap up midfielder Wade Small after Gary Taylor-Fletcher suffered knee ligament damage, and the loanee from Sheffield Wednesday starts on the right hand side of a midfield four.

On the other side of that four, somewhat surprisingly, Joe Martin starts for the first time since January, in place of Graeme Owens.

Rob Edwards and Brett Ormerod are both now back fit, and start on the bench which includes young goalkeeper Mark Halstead, Owens and Claus Jorgensen.

Blackpool (4-4-2):
Coid - Baptiste - Barker - Crainey
Small - Adam - Southern - Martin
Blackman - Campbell

Subs: Halstead, Jorgensen, Edwards, Ormerod, Owens.
