Ian Holloway is promising not to make any rash selection decisions ahead of tomorrow's game at Cardiff City.
Blackpool travel to Wales on the back of winning just once in four games and a lacklustre 3-1 home defeat against Huddersfield Town.
Although Holloway is adamant that there will be no 'knee-jerk' changes, he didn't rule out tinkering with his starting XI.
'I don't make knee-jerk reactions. I look at what the lads have done in training, I will look at the team I think Cardiff will play, and I'll pick my side based on that,' he said.
'When I was younger, I might have made knee-jerk reactions, but I don't get flustered anymore. I`ll pick who I think will be the best team to start, and then the best team to finish, to give Cardiff problems.'
The manager has stuck with the same team just once this season - against Leeds United following the win at Millwall. Some supporters have chosen to blast his style, crying for a settled team, but the change in personnel is more indicative of the abundance of talent at his Holloway`s disposal.
Ludovic Sylvestre, Kevin Phillips, Angel Martinez and Matt Phillips were all left on the bench on Monday night. All, at one point or another, have been fans` favourites.
At least two of them can probably expect to start at Cardiff tomorrow - M Phillips and Angel - given the lack of prolificacy going forward and indifference in trying to take hold of the fixture in midfield.
Bouncing back is crucial if the Seasiders want to stay in immediate touch with the top two in the Championship.
'What better chance than to go away from home against Cardiff and take them on in their wonderful stadium,' he said.
'I have to convince my lads that no matter what the conditions are like, we are going pass, move and try to hurt their back four. That`s what football`s all about for me.'
