Pool V Colchester

The games are coming think and fast and the visitors to Bloomfield Road this weekend are Colchester United.

Blackpool Team News:

Simon Grayson is set to keep the same line up form the mid-week match against Sheffield United. Andy Welsh has impressed in the pass two games as a substitute but Gary Taylor-Fletcher should retain his place in the starting eleven. Shaun Barker has been listed as a doubt due to a ankle knock but should start to keep is 100% appearance record for the season.

Player to watch: Ben Burgess

With three goals this season the big man has managed to displace Keigan Parker for the starting place alongside Andy Morrell. His late headed goal on Wednesday night wasn`t enough to earn Pool all three points but Pool have yet to taste defeat this season when 'Big bird has scored.

Colchester Team News:

Colchester had an average start to the season but are unbeaten away from home in the league which included a 3-0 win against Preston hardly hard work I think we would agree! Top scorer form last season Jamie Cureton left and one of his replacements Kevin Lisbie has started to make up for the loss with 3 goals so far. Teddy has knocked in two goals and Mark Yeates has added the same amount.

Sheringham is set to return after a weekend rest and Matt Connolly can play after serving a suspension.

Player to watch: Kevin Lisbie

As mentioned above the former Charlton striker has scored three times this season following his summer move from The Valley. The former England Under 21 striker never really reached his full potential at the Addicks but seems to have found his level in the Championship. His three goals this season have come playing alongside Sheringham so he`ll be looking for another one if the partnership is re-united.
