Blackpool forget off-field problems


Andy Hobson remains suspended for the Panthers, who produced an impressive performance at Swinton last week.

Victory for Martin Crompton’s squad this week would strengthen their position among the title chasers in Co-operative Championship One.

Crompton said: “I thought we were absolutely fantastic (against Swinton), especially in the first 40 minutes. We should have been out of sight.”

Scorpions duo Lee Williams and Jamie Murphy are both injured, while Aled James (personal reasons) is also unavailable.

Craig Richards and Casey Bromilow return to Anthony Seibold’s squad, but there is a doubt over Geraint Davies.

Seibold said: “Blackpool are a top three team. Playing them away is going to be a tough ask, especially travelling on the day of the game.

“However, we want to rebound from our defeat last week and give a better account of ourselves after what we consider a poor performance against Workington.”
