Rotherham V Pool

It`s the big one, Pool`s game in hand; a win will move the Seasiders above Oldham into 5th place if they can overcome bottom-of-the-league Rotherham,.

Rotherham Team News:

Former Preston midfielder Michael Keane may return after he suffered a clash of heads in the Brentford game back on the 17 of March. Also back into contention is Martin Woods who also missed the Brentford with an ankle injury.

Player to watch: Delroy Facey

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.

Kaspars Gorkss remains on international duty so Grayson will keep with Michael Jackson at the back. Keith Southern will also miss out, but if fit would have trouble to replace the impressive Claus Jorgensen.

Player to watch: Claus Jorgensen
