'Pool Search for First Away Win at Forest

The Seasiders travel to Nottingham Forest on the back of the Championship's stand out result of the season so far.

The 2-1 win over Newcastle United on Wednesday evening provides a platform for the team to build on as they strive to better the 16th place finish last campaign.

After a poor start to the season at home, Billy Davies' Forest have won back-to-back fixtures at The City Ground and despite losing twice already could go above 'Pool with a win.

Vital Quotes:

Ian Holloway on new signing Hameur Bouazza:

'He can blaze a trail on the floor and we need that. He was fantastic and he is a terrific addition for us.

'We had a bit of pace up front against Newcastle and I think Hameur is a different kettle of fish for us.

'He is going through Ramadan as well (the Islamic month of fasting), where he can't eat properly. He was praying in the dressing room last Saturday before the Leicester game and I don't know whether our lads have seen that before.

'But they have respected him and he respects us and what a fantastic performance from him on Wednesday. He just unlocked that door and opened up their back four and that is a fantastic quality to have.'


Billy Davies on interest in Robert Earnshaw:

'Robert Earnshaw is not for sale, he is not going anywhere,' said Davies. 'He is part of a six-man strike-force that we have put together for a reason.

'He is here to fight for his place and to play a part in this squad of players.

Nottingham Forest Team News:

Striker Joe Garner misses out due to suspension after remarkably picking up his fifth booking of the season against Ipswich.

On-loan Majewski could be in line for a recall in midfield after shaking off an injury quicker than expected.

Player to watch: Lee Camp

Blackpool adopted a shoot on sight approach against Newcastle and only a good performance by 'keeper Steve Harper stopped the game being all but over at half time.

If Adam, Bouazza and co are in the same shooting mood, big Lee Camp will need to be at his best.

Blackpool Team News:

The usual suspects are out injured, including Danny Coid, Daniel Nardiello and Stephen McPhee.

Ben Burgess is fighting to be fit after missing Wednesday night but even if he is ok to play will probably start on the bench with the same starting eleven likely.

Player to watch: Hameur Bouazza

The Algerian is already turning into something of a revelation at Bloomfield Road already.

Playing away from home will suit his style more and he'll provide a decent get-out ball if 'Pool are defending deep - especially in the second half - with his lightning speed.

Predict!
