Team News

Blackpool
Huddersfield
  • Mick McCarthy will likely switch to a more positive 4-4-2 system for this winnable relegation six-pointer with Ian Poveda-Ocampo and Gary Madine both in line for recalls.
  • James Husband is managing a minor hamstring problem and is a doubt for the visit of Huddersfield on Tuesday night.
  • That injury could leave the Tangerines without a recognised left-back, so expect Callum Connolly to fill in should Husband miss out.
  • Polish centre-back Michal Helik picked up a knock in the closing stages of Saturday's game against QPR, so expect Matty Pearson to slot in at centre-back alongside Tom Lees.
  • One other change is on the cards for the visitors with Josh Koroma pushing for a start ahead of Joseph Hungbo on the right.

Prediction

  • Blackpool were by far the inferior team on Saturday afternoon as they were beaten 3-0 by a Chuba Akpom-inspired Middlesbrough side at the Riverside. Mick McCarthy's side are now winless in their last 11 league games with only Wigan keeping them off the bottom.
  • Mark Fotherham watched on as his Huddersfield side closed the gap to 21st-placed Cardiff to just two points on Saturday following a 1-1 draw at home against QPR. The Terriers may be closing in on safety, but no club has a worse record away from home than Huddersfield this season.
