Blackpool vs. Norwich

Bloomfield Road



Pool V Norwich

Pool take on Championship Norwich City in the F.A. Cup Fourth Round at a sold out Bloomfield Road.

Blackpool Team News:

Simon Grayson may keep the same 11 who defeated Leyton Orient on Saturday. He may be pushed to start Keigan Parker instead of Scott Vernon who has failed to score in two matches.

Most likely Grayson will keep his policy of trying to keep the same 11 where possible and use Parker as an impact sub which worked on Saturday.

Player to watch: Andy Morrell

Morrell started the season at Championship level with Coventy and will be striving to impress against the Champtionship side.

Norwich Team News:

Chris Brown will look for his first start after his move from Sunderland. He will replace Robert Earnshaw who has a long-term injury.

Also making his debut will be David Marshell who joined from Celtic on loan. Former Manchester United winger Luke Chadwick is out with bruising of the bone.

Player to watch: Darren Huckerby

The experienced winger will be looking to cause Shaun Barker no end of troubles down the left. He`ll be using all the tricks in the book and will be vital for the away side with the flanks at Bloomfeild Road being in good condition.
