A parade at the valley?

The Seasiders go into Saturdays match with Bradford wanting a second successive victory. The win last Saturday lifted pool out of the drop zone so hopefully they can build on that and challenge the top half of League one.

Vital Quotes:

Bradford City Team News:

Bradford welcome back Ben Muirhead after five weeks out with a groin strain. Aaron Wilbraham is set to make his debut after his loan move from MK Dons. Dean Windass is out through suspension after he abused a referee.

Out: Dean Windass (suspension)

Player to watch: Ben Muirhead

Coming back from injury, Colin Todd says that he'll throw Muirhead back into the team and hopefully he will make a big impact. Hopefully for us he won't!

Blackpool Team News:

Blackpool are still without Marc Joseph, Danny Coid, Ciaron Donnelly and Phil Doughty through injury. Marcus Bean is now suspended so Keith Southern steps in.

Out: Marc Joseph and Ciaron Donnelly (hamstring)
Danny Coid (ankle)
Phil Doughty (leg)
Marcus Bean (suspension)

Player to watch: Keith Southern

With Marcus Bean being suspended, can he grab the oppurtunity to stake a claim for a regular place? Him and Neil Wood have the potential to provide a quality partnership.
