The 11 in Tangerine

So when Sunday come, there are going to be 11 men in Tangerine stepping out onto the mountain top that is Boundary Park (Highest ground in England). The 11 boys in blue will have to face the Seasiders, the best away team in League One this season, the highest scoring team in League One this season, the team that`s won 7 (seven) games on the bounce so lets meet the 11.

Joe Hart
The keeper is on loan at moment from Manchester City and was today called up to the England under 21`s squad, with the hope of a place in the squad for the European Championships this summer. In 5 games Hart has let in 6 goals, but has yet to taste defeat with Blackpool.

Robbie Williams
The left back arrived on deadline day from Barnsley on loan with little expectations but has settled down well in the dreaded left-back spot. Not only is Williams able to defend he also chipped in with 4 goals from his 9 starts. A header on his debut again Bradford, free kicks again Crewe, Cheltenham and firing in again Huddersfield at a corner. Solid, good going forward and a good option from free kicks.

Shaun Barker
At right back Shaun Barker has also helped with several vital goals this season 3 from his 45 league starts the most by a Pool player this season. Performances this season have earned him numerous man of the match awards and Barker has been voted the player of the season in our site vote.

Ian Evatt
Evo` has been colossus at the back this season, his effort, drive and desire has been appreciated by the fans and no doubt has driven the team on at times. With only one goal this season Evatt will be looking to double his tally but main job will be to keep Porter and co in his back pocket.

Michael Jackson
Some people saw the singing of Jacko as a step back, a player coming to the end of his career looking for it easy at the Seaside, how wrong they could be. His winning mentality, drive is same and sensible head at the back has helped hold the team together. With defensive partners Barker and Evatt, Jacko has helped to establish the back four after a unstable start.

Wes Hoolahan
A Trialist did rather well in the pre-season trip to Lativia and A trialist was brought in on a year loan from Livingstone and his name was Wesley Hoolahan. His skills at times have had league one defenders left bemused flat out on their posteriors as the young Irishman has jinked his magic. With 8 league goals from 37 appearances and in cracking form of late Oldham will have to be wary of the number 27.

Keith Southern
The main man in the middle has once again been Keith Southern, some people may not like his style of play but his is oh so effective in his role in the middle. Breaking up play, driving forward, 5 goals this season, Southern over the last few weeks and has been tremendous.

Claus Bech Jorgensen
The former Coventry man had to wait for his turn, after a few starts on the left and right of midfield, Claus has settled in the middle thanks to consecutive injuries to David Fox and Keith Southern. With a couple of goals, driving runs into the box the Ice Man has settled into the side. Not sure why the ice man but sounds good.

Adrian Forbes
Well, nobody can really make their minds up about Mr Forbes and at times it seems like he has the same problem. Steady, hard working and productive one match, and in others head-less chicken springs to mind. One thing no one can fault is his effort, one goal is a disappointment, but on his last visit to Oldham he hit a copper in the head, hit the post, so lets hope he hits the back of the net, (the Oldham net that is!).

Keigan Parker
The 5.07` Scott has had his best season at the Seaside, his brace against Swansea on the last day of the season were his 12th and 13th league goals of the season, three in the last two. Dangerous from outside the box, in the channels and being set free the Oldham defence will have a task in keeping him quite.

Andy Morrell
For some the main man this season, 110% effort, pure effort all the time, even when Pool have been losing this season or been below par this man has still run himself into the ground. His rewards 19 goals this season in total, 16 in the league and a fantastic four against Swansea last Friday with a standing ovation from home and away supporters. With two in the bag against Oldham already this season he`ll be looking for more.

So for the Oldham fan(s) reading this, by now they must be a tad nervous, yes we know about the lump Porter upfront with some record that he`s broken this year but we`ve got those 11 above and the away support that is like no other, ask the silenced 18,000 at Swansea last week.
