Oldham V Pool

Pool go into the play-off first leg at Boundary Park against Oldham as firm favourites and have the added bonus of the travelling 4,500+.

Oldham Team News:

For the Latics top scorer Chris Porter is set to be fit after a picking up a knock on his knee. The news is the same for his attacking partner Paul Warne who has been suffering from a shoulder injury. Loanees Luigi Glombard (Cardiff) and Miki Roque (Liverpool) have had their loan periods extended so will be able to feature in the game.

Oldham come into the game with two wins on the bounce, Brighton and Chesterfield, but there form towards the end of the season has been poor. Goals in the league this season have come from Porter (21), Liddell (10) and Warne (9).

Player to watch: Richie Wellens

The former Pool player had a poor match in the fixture between the two teams at BP this season. Four goals in the league this season Wellens is one of the Latics top players but as we all know can be indifferent at times.

Blackpool Team News:

Simon Grayson will make one change to the starting line up, keeper Paul Rachubka has recovered from injury which means Joe Hart returns to Manchester City after his emergency loan period. Rhys Evans is nearing fitness but looks set to miss out on a place on the bench. Rachubka, on loan from Huddersfeild, made his Blackpool debut in the Oldham fixture this season keeping a clean sheet at BP pulling of a couple of magnificent saves.

Chris Brandon continues to serve his three match ban and will only be available for the final. Adrian Forbes may continue on the right but there is pressure for his place from Simon Gillett.

Player to watch: Andy Morrell

With four goals last match against Swansea and two goals against Oldham this season already Gregan and Haining will have their hands full.

Match Facts & Stats

The honours were even at Bloomfield Road in the first league meeting of the two sides, Scotty Vernon gave the home side a first half lead, Wellens and Porter in the second half gave the away the lead but Morrell equalised on 90 to grab a point.

The match at BP was as exciting with Pool grabbing a 1-0 win. Andy Morrell`s goal in the second half proved to be the winner, Pool hanging on with Porter forcing Rachubka to pull of some great saves and then hitting the bar in the final moments.
