Blackpool have the chance to pull themselves further away from the bottom four this weekend with an encounter at Hartlepool.
The Monkey Hangers haven’t won in 2006 and their winless streak has lasted eight games. Their last win came in mid December against Bournemouth. In those eight games they only managed six goals and have conceded ten.
anager Martin Scott will have to make one or two changes to the team that drew to Swansea on Saturday. Thomas Butler who started at left wing last week but only lasted 24 minutes before a reoccurrence of an injury which has seen him miss the last month.
Adam Boyd is a doubt for the game, Boyd, last season's top scorer returned to action on Wednesday where he scored a penalty in a reserves 6-2 win over Hull, but the game on Saturday may be too soon for his return.
Joel Porter is also back in training but may have picked up a groin strain so he won't feature too.
Missing for United

Christopher Llewellyn- Suspension
Doubts for United
Thanks to the www.hartlepool.vitalfootball.co.uk for the team information
The young striker is on loan from Forest, he had an excellent game against Swansea showing a turn of pace.
Once again the Seasiders will be without Evens, Coid, Burns and Doughty all due to long term injuries. For the first time in while manager Simon Grayson might be able to name an unchanged team, however he does have the services of Sean Taylor who signed on loan for the Pool late on Wednesday from Sunderland.
But with competition fierce for a place in the match sixteen the youngster might have to wait for his first taste of league action.
Missing for the Pool
Gareth Evens – knee,
Danny Coid – ankle,
Jamie Burns – ankle,
Phil Doughty – leg.
He got his seventh goal of the season on Tuesday night against Doncaster and will be looking to add to that total against the monkey hangers.
Hartlepool snatched all three points earlier this season with a ram-raid performance at Bloomfield Road, goals from Antony Sweeney and and Steven Istead, on 86 and 90 minutes respectively, cancelled Tommy Wright’s strike early in the match.
