A bumper crowd is expected at Bloomfield Road for the visit of League One’s big boys Nottingham Forrest.
Once again the Seasiders will be without Evens, Coid and Doughty all due to long term injuries. Jamie Burns will be available for selection after featuring in the reserves mid week after a long term ankle problem, but the local lad has a lack of match practice.
Neil Wood will not feature after his leg breaking tackle last week at Hartlepool earned him a three match ban.
Jamie Burns – ankle
Missing for the Pool
Gareth Evens – knee,
Danny Coid – ankle,
Phil Doughty – leg.
Neil Wood – suspension.
After a performance that earned him a place in the League One team of the week Parker will be looking to get another goal against Forrest after he scored in the reserve fixture earlier this season.
Former Blackpool boss Gary Megson will be able to call upon the services of Julian Bennett, Nicky Southall and Nathan Tyson who all missed the last game due to suspension. Recent signing striker Grant Holt will be missing due to suspension after picking up his 10th booking of the season.
However Megson will be able to pick Kris Commons, he missed Tuesday's defeat to MK Dons through injury. Commons is Forrest’s top scorer in the league this season with 5 goals.

Nicky Southall – suspension,
Nathan Tyson – suspension,
Cris Commons – injury.

Tyson signed for Forrest in January from Wycombe for £675,000 after a intial loan period at the City Ground. Tyson managed an impressive record at Wycombe with 39 league goals in 66 games, he’s continued his good form with two goals in four since making his mover permanent.
The two sides met at the City Ground earlier this season, 17,000 witnessed a one-all draw, a free-kick from Keigan Parker gave Pool the lead but a goal from Ian Breckin meant the points were shared.
