Team news: Blackpool (A)

22 April 2019

Head coach Joey Barton has named his 18-man squad for today's Sky Bet League One derby against local rivals Blackpool.

Town came out the blocks late on in their last league fixture as substitute Ash Hunter volleyed the ball in the back of the net, after a long throw from youngster James Hill.

Barton has made two changes to that side as Hunter and Hill come in to replace Harrison Biggins and Ashley Nadesan. Also, former player Chris Long is in a Tangerine shirt today, which will be an odd one for Town fans.

Here are the confirmed lineups for today's game:

Town XI: Cairns (GK); Eastham, Hill, Husband; Burns, Coyle, Sheron, R.Wallace, Madden; Hunter, Evans.

Bench: P.Jones (GK), Southam-Hales, Nadesan, Biggins, Sowerby, Baggley, Rydel.

Blackpool XI: Mafoumbi (GK), Heneghan, Spearing, Nottingham, Thompson, Tilt, Virtue, Gnanduillet, Kirby, Bola, Long.

Bench: Boney (GK), Anderton, Evans, Delfouneso, Dodoo, Pritchard, Feeney.
