Pool V Plymouth
Simon Grayson side are stretched further this weekend against Plymouth with Kaspers Gorkss out it`s going to be all change at the back.
Blackpool Team News:
Barker should replace Gorkss in the middle of the defense, the Latvian picked up a red card in the midweek match against Coventry. John Hills may come in at left back with Danny Coid switching to right back. But Stephen Crainey could return. Ben Burgess is also a doubt so Grayson may switch back to 442 rather than the 451 played in the away games. Vernon or Parker may partner Morrell upfront with Micheal Flynn losing his place in midfield to make way for the second striker.
Player to watch: Micheal Jackson
Pool's player of the season so far. With the back four changing every week the stability of Jackson at the back will be key.
