A Parade At The Valley?

The Seasiders go into Saturdays match with Bradford wanting a fifth game unbeaten. The win last Saturday lifted pool further out of the mire so hopefully they can build on that and challenge the top half of League one.

Bradford City Team News:

Bradford have a fully fit squad to choose from ahead of the game at home to the seasiders, apart from Dean Windass who is still serving his five match suspension.

Manager Colin Todd is still expected to make changes though, after the hammering his side took at Boundary Park, where Blackpool go on Saturday.

Suspended: Dean Windass

Player to watch: Bobby Petta

Looked a constant threat at Bloomfield Road in August, you could see the class of the winger. Sometimes lazy though, Stockley will have to keep a close eye on him.

Blackpool Team News:

Blackpool still have Danny Coid and Phil Doughty out to long term injures, where Andy Talyor is hoping to be fit for the trip to Valley Parade.

Out: Phil Doughty (Leg)
Danny Coid (Ankle)

Doubts: Andy Taylor

Player to watch: Gareth Williams

Looked amazing on Saturday, and will hope to start on Tuesday night. If not, why not? But he'll hope to make a huge impact when he comes on.
