Blackpool aim to bounce back from Saturday night's horror show at Burnley with a tough trip to Leeds.
Leeds are of course managed by Ian Holloway's predecessor Simon Grayson, so it should be a tasty encounter.
It would be typical Blackpool for them to answer the critics with a big win tomorrow night, but another defeat would pile the pressure on Ollie who is now being criticised for his team selection and tactics by a large majority of the 'Pool faithful.
Simon Grayson hopes that he gets a good reception from the 'Pool fans tomorrow:
'I hope I get a good reception from the Blackpool fans. I'll be disappointed if I don't because I spent a lot of time there and put in a lot of effort, both as a player and manager.'
Meanwhile, Ollie has revealed that he has been doing a lot of soul searching following Blackpool's turgid start to the season:
'We have to play better, defend better from set plays and take more chances. We have to stand up and be counted... both myself and the team.'
Robert Snodgrass is expected to pass a fitness test on a sore back, whilst ex 'Pool stopper Paul Rachubka will start in goal.
Been on fire in front of goal lately. Last faced us in the Championship Playoff Final, so will want to make amends.
Gary Taylor-Fletcher is expected to miss out again through injury, whilst it's very possible that Ollie will shuffle his pack following Saturday's defeat.
Drew criticism from our Editor this weekend; can KP roll back the years tomorrow night at Elland Road?
This is the first league meeting between the sides in 41 years, and the 40th competitive meeting between the two sides in general.
Leeds have lost one of their last nine.
'Pool have only won once on the road this season; against Hull on the opening weekend.
Millwall at home on Saturday.
