It`s the sixth game in eighteen days and the squad is bearing thin. After four consecutive draws in the league Larry`s men will be looking for victory at the Ricoh Arena.

Coventry Team News:

Coventry have one doubt, Isaac Osbourne a former pool target is due to return to the side after a calf injury ruled him out of the Charlton match. If he doesn`t return then David McNamee will retain his place in the side.

For the Carlton match Andy Marshall started in goal ahead summer signing Dimi Konstantopoulos for his first start of the season and should retain his place.

Player to watch: Michael Mifsud

The little Maltesers has made an impact this season, the former Lillestrom forward signed at the turn of the year for the Sky Blues. This season he`s hit 6 goals in 8 games, with two against Manchester Untied in the League Cup win last week.

Blackpool Team News:

Stephen Crainey is still struggling but adequate cover came in the form of Danny Coid on Saturday with John Hills on the bench. Burgess is still a doubt but Scotty Vernon is back after a knock.

According to an interview with Larry we had 16 fit first team players for the trip to Watford but with Vern back he should be able to select from 17. It`s the first trip to the Ricoh Arena for the Seasiders and a win will be the first in the league in almost a month, the last coming at home against Hull.

Player to watch: Wes Hoolahan

He`s still doing the business converting the spot kick on Saturday cooly sending Poom the wrong way. The goal was his third of the season and second in as many games.

Match Facts & Stats

The two sides last met in the league cup, Pools first leg lead of one goal thanks to Andy Linigan (the tower lit up when he scroed!) wasn`t enough as the then Premiership side ran out 3-1 winners in the second leg with two pens converted by Gary McAllister thanks to some help from Mr. M D Reed.
