Brighton V Pool

It`s Pool`s first televised game of the season, and if its anything to go by the last time we were on TV its going to be five start viewing at the Withdean.

Brighton Team News:

The major team news for the Gulls is Dutch stopper Michel Kuipers will replace Wayne Henderson who is on international duty with the Republic of Ireland.

Adam Hinshelwood, Guy Butters, Tommy Fraser and Jake Robinson are all pushing for a starting place.

Player to watch: Alexander Revell

The young forward joined Brighton this summer from Cambridge United, he`s the club`s top scorer in the league with three goals, but only one of them has come at home.

Blackpool Team News:

Simon Wiles featured in the mid-week reserves game but is far from first team fitness and a first team place.

Rory Prendergast, Marcus Bean and Keigan Parker all played too with the hope to gain a first team place but manager Simon Grayson will look to keep the same 11 that grabbed the home win. Claus Jorgensen might return also after injury.

Player to watch: Andy Morrell

The nippy striker has hit two goals in the last three games and he`ll be looking to add to that tally to keep his place in the starting eleven secure.

Match Facts & Stats

Pool`s last visit to the Withdean Stadium ended in a three nil defeat in 2003, a Coid own goal and a brace from McPhee secured the points.

In the home fixture Pool managed to get revenge with a 3-1 home win, Sheron, Matias and Murphy the scorers for Pool and Piercy with the conciliation for the seagulls.
