Blackpool vs Sheffield Wednesday

After a fantastic 2-0 win away at Derby County on Boxing Day, Blackpool turn their attentions to the bread and butter of home fixtures tomorrow.

Managerless Sheffield Wednesday are the visitors, having not won since 17 October - a run spanning 11 games.

In that time Brian Laws was sacked from Hillsborough, with Sean McAuley taking over as caretaker boss.

Wednesday may have started to turn a corner, credibly drawing 2-2 against Newcastle live on Sky yesterday.

'Pool haven't had a home game since the 2-1 defeat at the hands of Barnsley earlier this month.

The postponed game against West Brom on the 19th looks to have worked a treat for Ian Holloway's men and allowed the likes of Charlie Adam and Ben Burgess fully recover from injury.

Vital Quotes:

Sheffield Wednesday wins: 37

Blackpool Team News:

David Vaughan returns from his one match ban, which saw him sit out the win at Derby.

Daniel Nardiello looks set for a place on the bench whilst it's uncertain whether Barry Bannan will replace Ormerod on the wing, despite the latters exploits at Pride Park.

Holloway's teams never pick themselves, but it'd be surprising if the same back four weren't chosen.

Player to watch: Charlie Adam

The midfielder drew plenty of plaudits for his performance yesterday and after injury will be looking to build on that.

Up against tough tackling James O'Connor in the middle, Adam has a perfect opportunity to stamp his authority on the game.

Sheffield Wednesday Team News:

Yesterday's goalscorer Luke Varney is missing through suspension and has probably played his last match for the Owls.

There are no fresh fitness worries and McAuley is likely to go with a similar team again looking for that elusive victory.

Player to watch: Marcus Tudgay

Courted by Burnley in the summer, Tudgay hasn't had the best of campaigns so far by his high standards.

However, he's still pitched in with six league goals so far and his ability to drop off the centre halves as well as playing on their shoulders should provide Ian Evatt and co a tough task.
