The Seasiders host Cardiff City in the first Championship early kick off tomorrow (the second being Birmingham v QPR at 12:45) looking to break into the top half of the league once again.
It's been a decent start by Simon Grayson's team, who are - at the moment - defying the bookies and holding their own in the division.
Cardiff are no slouches either. Dave Jones has a well drilled outfit with some quality attacking players in Bothroyd, McCormack and Whittingham. They've recently signed American international Eddie Johnson as well, who is a potent threat but raw.
They currently sit in 7th place - although only two points ahead of Pool, who sit seven places behind.
Home 2-1 win v Coventry.
Home 2-1 loss v Birmingham.
Away 1-0 loss v Swansea.
Away 1-1 draw v Derby.
Away 1-0 win v Barnsley.
Stephen Crainey and Jermaine Wright are the long term abstenees for Pool, whilst Nardiello is likely to miss out again.
Larry ruled out a move for a striker this week, so are set to start with Burgess and Kabba with no alternative on the bench.
Alan Gow is pushing for a start, and Claus Jorgensen must be feeling the heat the most, but should retain his place.
Debate has raged this week as to whether Jorgensen offers something extra to the team after the midweek 1-1 draw at QPR.
As mentioned above, Alan Gow must surely be in contention to take Claus' place soon, but can the former Faroe Island international put in a good performance to keep his place?
No major team news for The Bluebirds ahead of the game.
Fullback Tony Capaldi is struggling to prove his fitness and Ricky Scimeca definitely misses out.
The former Leeds United man has always been a dominant force in the midfield for Cardiff, and a tussle with Southern and Jorgensen should be interesting, and probably vital in seeing who comes out of the game with three points.
