Pool V Watford

Well it`s come down to the last day of the season, it`s in our hands avoiding defeat to Watford will secure our place in the Championship, if not lets hope the results go our way!

Blackpool Team News:

Paul Dickov played his last game in his loan spell against Plymouth, top scorer Ben Burgess and Andy Morrell are fighting it out to partner McPhee. Stephen Crainey missed the last match, Gorkss played at left back with Jackson at centre back. It`s unclear at the moment what the back four on the last day of the season will be.

Player to watch: Wes Hoolahan

He set up the Jorgensen goal in the Sheffield Wednesday game and at times this season showed glimpses of what he can do. Aidy Boothroyd has pointed him out as the one to stop, lets hope they don`t.

Watford Team News:

Watford really could do with all three points to secure their play-off space. They sit in 5th on 69 points, but if they lose and two out of Wolves, Ipswich and Sheffield United win they could drop out. They have the best away record in the league with 10 away wins, 8 draws and 4 defeats. Last week they lost to relegated Scunthorpe at home, 1-0, form has been somewhat of a problem for the Hornets.

Goalkeeper Richard Lee might drop to the bench after a Poor performance with Mart Poom taking his place in the sticks. Upfront Nathen 'the duke` Ellington may return.

Player to watch: Daniel Shittu

The former Pool loanee was a legend at Bloomfield Road, since his 1.6 million move to Watford the likable defender has secured his place in the site and is regarded as one of the best centre backs outside of the Premiership. Seven goals from the back also has helped, lets hope Danny will have a good reception at the match but an awful performance.
