Pool Vs Sheffield United

The vibrant Bryan Robson brings his Sheffield United side to Bloomfield Road for a ding-dong Tuesday night Yorkshire Vs Lancashire battle.

Blackpool Team News:

After the draw at Burnley Simon Grayson may shuffle his pack again, despite getting into good positions Keigan Parker failed to impress, especially after missing a sitter just before half-time. On the other hand Ben Burgess did impress coming on and playing a part in the equalizer. Welsh should retain his place on the bench he showed some glimpses for what must have earned him a contract.

Player to watch: Andy Morrell

He grabbed his second goal of the season and created the penalty in at the weekend. Forever willing Morrell should give the back four of United a torrid time with either Parker or Burgess.

Sheffield United Team News:

If you don't know what happened to Sheffield United last season then watch this video which will inform you of the injustice that the Blades went thought. Anyway AH (see video) got his way after and in the season break Warnock left and Mr personality Bryan Robson was appointed boss. The pick of the summer signings James Beattie has hit four goals this season, with two coming last Saturday against Wolves in a 3-1 home win.

They are currently in eighth place on 7 points. Other summer signing Billy 'the sh*t' Sharp has yet to hit the back of the net, which might prove that he's not good enough at this level, he tried once before and failed (please don't let him score tomorrow night Evo!).

Missing the trip to the Seaside are Derek Geary, serves a suspension, Lee Hendrie (knee) and Rob Hulse (broken leg).

Player to watch: James Beattie

The Blades have been hitting the drum recently to beat of their striker James Beattie. A goal on the opening day was follow up with the winner against West Broom and his brace (one from the spot) on Saturday grabbed all three points against Wolves. He's a different calibre of striker from the opponents Jacko and Evatt have had to face so far this season, with 5 England Caps Beattie is playing below his level and can show his premiership class.

Match Facts & Stats
