The dust has settled from the Preston game, Pool travel to the Britannia Stadium to face Stoke who are currently sitting top of the league.
Tony Pulis will be without trio Liam Lawrence, Ricardo Fuller and Ryan Shawcross who are all serving suspensions. Sidibe is struggling with a hamstring injury, it`s 50:50 at the moment. It means Paul Gallagher, Jon Parkin, Danny Pugh and Andy Wilkinson will be pushing for a starting place.
Equipped with his long-throw the former Derby midfielder has fitted well into the Stoke team since his initial loan spell at the Britannia from Sunderland.
Striker Grant Holt is in line to make his Blackpool debut after signing on loan until the end of the season. Michael Jackson is still injured, Keith Southern may return after missing the Preston match.
Man of the Match in the Preston game he`ll have to be at the top of his game again. It looks like stoke will be without Sidibe as well as the suspended Fuller, but the threat will be there if big Jon Parkin plays.
Stoke ran out 3-2 winners at Bloomfield Road back in December. A brace from Fuller and one from Cort helped them after Flynn had taken the lead for the home team, a late Barker goal made the last 5 minuets close.
Our last visit to Stoke ended in a 2-0 defeat, our last win came in 1998, a 3-1 win goals from Carlisle and a brace from Martin Aldridge
