Burnley vs. Blackpool

Turf Moor

16th September 2008

Burnley v Blackpool

The Seasiders head to Turf Moor tomorrow evening in search of a first away win against their Lancashire rivals since 1998.

Simon Grayson and his team sit in 12th place, level on points with Sheffield United in the playoffs, after two straight 1-0 victories away at Southampton and at home against Barnsley.

The hosts overcame Nottingham Forest at the City Ground last weekend, with two goals from veteran defender Graham Alexander enough to secure The Clarets' first victory of the campaign.

Expectations in East Lancashire have risen a great deal this season, with the astute signings of Steven Thompson and Martin Paterson, coupled with a big money deal for winger Chris Eagles. However, it is rumoured that the latter has disrupted harmony at the club. That, and poor early season form has left the natives restless, although being only two points off the top six.

Burnley Team News:

Burnley are without Chris Eagles for the game as he sits out the second game of his three match ban.

Burnley probable line up: Jensen, Alexander, Anderson, Caldwell, Carlisle, Jordan, Elliott, McDonald, McCann, Thompson, Paterson.

Player to watch: Wade Elliott

Wade Elliott on the right wing is always likely to cause the opposing defence problems, and is up against the Blackpool key man.

Blackpool Team News:

Blackpool look set to make changes from the weekend, with David Vaughan and Keith Southern both pushing for starts in the middle of midfield. Elsewhere is likely to be unchanged.

Blackpool probable line up: Rachubka, Barker, Evatt, Edwards, Camara, GTF, Jorgensen, Southern, Hammill, Burgess, Kabba.

Player to watch: Mo Camara

Mo Camara on his return to Burnley where he played 90 games. He'll be up against Wade Elliott, the Burnley key man, and this tussle could provide the answer as to who will win the game.
