THE TEAM NEWS

DONCASTER

  • Doncaster Rovers' four-match winning run in all competitions ended with a 0-0 draw at Ipswich Town on Saturday but their performance was worthy of three points.
  • Kazaiah Sterling should be available after missing the trip to Ipswich with a dead leg, which saw fellow loanee Niall Ennis recalled up front.
  • Joe Wright is back in full training and could be available for the first time this season but fellow centre-back Alex Baptiste will definitely miss out against his former club.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Lawlor; Halliday, Anderson, John, James; Whiteman, Sheaf; Blair, Coppinger, Taylor; Sterling

Unavailable: Baptiste (Injured)

Doubtful: Sterling (Injured), Wright (Injured)

BLACKPOOL

  • After starting the season with three straight wins, Blackpool have now gone five league games without victory and travel to Yorkshire off the back of successive defeats.
  • Ben Heneghan was preferred to Ollie Turton in defence against MK Dons on Saturday in his first league start of the season and should keep his place after a good performance, but manager Simon Grayson has warned his players to expect changes.
  • Centre-back Rocky Bushiri is a doubt after missing Saturday's game and striker Nathan Delfouneso has been ruled out for a couple of weeks with a hamstring injury.

Predicted line-up (3-4-1-2): Alnwick; Edwards, Bushiri, Heneghan; Feeney, Spearing, Thompson, Husband; Kaikai; Gnanduillet, Hardie

Unavailable: Howard (Injured), Delfouneso (Injured)

Doubtful: Bushiri (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Current form points to a home win in this encounter. Doncaster are unbeaten in the league this season and have won three of their four games at the Keepmoat, but they have not managed to keep a clean sheet on home turf so consider the match result and both teams to score market here.
