Blackpool vs. Barnsley

Bloomfield Road, Blackpool

December 5th 2009

3pm

Blackpool V Barnsley

High-flyers Blackpool face improving Barnsley, looking to cement their place in the Play-Offs while Barnsley look to lay the ghost of Home Park to rest with a second successive victory on the road

Blackpool Team News:

Blackpool have recently brought in Aston Villa youngster Barry Bannan and he could feature against the Reds after the striker impressed late on as a sub against Preston on Saturday. Blackpools only injury worries remain with Stephen McPhee and Danny Coid. Ian Holloway has the luxury of the ability to name an unchanged line up

Player to watch: Charlie Adam

Charlie Adam has six goals from midfield already this season for the Seasiders and Reds fans will remember him choosing to join Blackpool over the Reds. He will probably be looking to score a goal on Saturday to rub it in.

Barnsley Team News:

Barnsley will unfortunately be without Nathan Doyle and Anderson Da Silva for their trip to Bloomfield Road. Both are suspended after picking up 5 yellow cards so far this season.

Emil Hallfredsson is expected to stay in the middle of midfield with either Bobby Hassell or Jacob Butterfield deputising for Nathan Doyle.

Jon Macken is also back in contention after recovering from the injury that forced him out of Saturday's abandoned game at Home Park at the last minute.

Darren Moore is also back to full fitness but Stephen Foster and Ryan Shotton are likely to keep their places in the centre of defence.

Player to watch: Daniel Bogdanovic

Daniel Bogdanovic has been in fine scoring form for the Reds and would have added to his tally on Saturday had the game at Plymouth not been abandoned under such contraversial circumstances.

Match Facts & Stats

Blackpool are unbeaten at home this season and even managed to turn over league leaders Newcastle United at Bloomfield Road. They average 2 goals for at home and less than 0.5 against.

Barnsley have picked up some form of late winning three of their last six on the road.

Ref Watch:

Lee Mason. Mr Mason was in charge of the Play-Off game at Cardiff where the Reds gained promotion back to the Championship over Swansea City

Match Prediction:

In all honesty I can't see us doing anything at Bloomfield Road. We will be coping with elements in their very open stadium, in which they are used to playing and they are on top form. I'm going to go for a 1-0 Blackpool.
