Vital Quotes:

Blackpool Team News:

David Vaughan is pushing for a place on the bench after coming through a reserve game, whilst Daniel Nardiello isn't expected to be near the sixteen despite being fit again.

Stephen Crainey is now nearing full training, but with Joe Martin and new signing Ian Harte vying for the left back spot, Crains won't be risked.

Lee Hendrie serves his second game of a three match suspension, and it is likely David Fox will keep his place alongside Keith Southern.

Skipper Rob Edwards probably won't be ready after his injury last week.

Player to watch: Shaun Barker

The right back, sporting a new bleach blonde trim, will be wanting to regain defensive confidence which he has lacked recently. With Rob Edwards unlikely to play, 'Reggie' could revert to centre back, although Baptiste played there last week.

Swansea City Team News:

Alan Tate is in line to make his first Championship start of the season to ease Swansea City's left-back crisis.

Marcos Painter, Stephen O'Halloran (both cruciate knee ligament) and Fede Bessone (hamstring) are out as is long-term absentee midfielder Ferrie Bodde.

Player to watch: Jason Scotland

The striker has notched eight league goals so far this campaign and could prove to be a handful for the 'Pool backline.

Top scorer in League 1 last year, Scotland hasn't hit the heights of 2007/08 but is still a threat.
