Town V Pool

The Seasiders go to Huddersfield this weekend in search of their first away points of the season.

Vital Quotes:

On Thursday Simon Grayson talked to the local press about the game at Huddersfield, he started of by commenting on the possibility of some more signing before the game on Saturday.

“I’m trying to improve the team all the time if someone else came in before the weekend and he would improve the team the starting eleven, then I’d have no hesitations in putting him in.”

“My decision for the team on Saturday will be to put out the team that will beat Huddersfield. Whether it’s the same team or not only Huddersfield will realise that at two o’clock on Saturday”

“It will be but they will have been concentrating their efforts a little bit on the Chelsea game, but they have got that out of the way now.”

“Peter Jackson will be getting his team really fired up to get them back on a run to get them back in to the top two or to make sure that they stay in the play-offs, but ultimately to get into the top two”

“They have got some decent player there; they are probably under achieving a little bit at the moment so we should be going there with a lot of confidence and hopefully get a result because t would be another massive boost if we could do that.”

Huddersfield Town Team News:

Town haven’t won in seven games but are still in fourth position. One player who might make an appearance is prolific striker Andy Booth who was been out of the side recently. This week the Huddersfield managed to recruit the services of defender Dan Smith from Sunderland on loan. The new man might have to settle for a place on the bench.

Back for the Town

Andy Booth

Player to watch: Pawel Abbott

The Polish big man is currently suffering the worst goal drought of his career, going eight games without a goal. Abbott, a former Bury and Preston player has managed twelve goals this year for the town and will be looking to add to that tally on Saturday.

Blackpool Team News:

Once again the Seasiders will be without Evens, Coid, Burns and Doughty all due to long term injuries. One doubt for the Pool is Ian Morris, the loanee had to go off at half time in the Oldham game, but manager Simon Grayson will hope the midfielder will be ready for selection.

There is the possibility of start or places on the bench for new boys Marc Joseph and Dean Gordon

Missing for the Pool

Gareth Evens – knee,

Danny Coid – ankle,

Jamie Burns – ankle,

Phil Doughty – leg.

Doubts

Ian Morris – injury

Player to watch: Lewis Gobern

The 19-year-old sparked into life after his first goal on Tuesday night, and will be hoping to build on that performance.

Match Facts & Stats

The Seasiders met Huddersfield three times last year, drawing 1-1 at Bloomfield Road, Murphy and Booth with a goal a piece. Then in the away fixture Blackpool lost 1-0, an early Luke Beckett goal separated the two sides.

The pick of the games was in the LDV when a young Blackpool side managed a 6-3 thrashing at Bloomfield Road. Goals that night came from Blinkhorn 2, Parker Coid Burns 2 and the Town scorers were McAliskey Schofield Ahmed.

Huddersfield 1-2 Blackpool
