Huddersfield V Pool

Pool look to round off the Easter weekend with three points at Huddersfield Town.

Huddersfield Team News:

After securing appoint on Saturday at Oldham caretaker boss Gerry Murphy will have to make a few changes.

Michael Collins, Gary Taylor-Fletcher and Adnan Ahmed all picked up knocks at Boundary Park and are doubtful for the match.

Town are also without Nathan and Tom Clarke, Andy Holdsworth, Danny Schofield, Matty Young's and Aaron Hardy.

Murphy is able to call upon the services of Frank Sinclair who missed the Oldham match due to a one match ban.

Player to watch: Luke Beckett

The man needs no introduction to the Seasiders and the bad news is that he`s been on form, three goals in four games with his total at 13 so far this season.

Blackpool Team News:

Pool have the one doubt, David Fox was replaced by Keith Southern at half time after he was clattered into on Saturday. The other change may come at the back if Rhys Evans is fit but there hasn`t been any news regarding the stoppers fitness.

Simon Grayson will be without Chris Brandon who is not able to play as part of his loan deal agreement, Simon Gillett or Adrian Forbes may come in for the winger.

Player to watch: Keigan Parker

He managed to use his head in the Tranmere game and put in a gut-busting performance running the channels.

Rewarded with a goal Parker should be looking to get in behind Town in the expansive pitch at the Galpaharm.

Match Facts & Stats

It`s the third meeting of the two sides this season and Pool are looking for the treble. The first match was in the F.A. cup, a second half Hoolahan penalty in the rain secured Pool`s path to the next round.
