The much travelled striker is the club top scorer after Will Hoskins left for premiership side Watford. The Huddersfeild born forward has hit the back of the onion bag 9 times in the league and at 26 has done well to notch up 9 clubs so far.

Blackpool Team News:

Simon Grayson welcome back Shaun Barker after he missed the Bradford due to a one match suspension. He might not slot back into the side after Danny Coid was able to step into the right back role with ease.
