Blackpool manager Gary Bowyer is hoping to have some of his injured strikers back in contention for the game against Wycombe this weekend.


Blackpool are having an injury crisis up front with as many as four strikers being unable to play due to various injuries.

Danny Philliskirk,Kyle Vassell, Jack Redshaw, and Jamille Matt are the current injury concerns plaguing the club. The treatment table also welcomed midfielder Colin Daniel after his injury in the 1-1 draw with Barnet a few days ago. However, managerBowyer says that the club has good news on this regard since the injury is not as big as initially feared.
Mark Cullen is the only fit forward at the disposal ofBowyer. He scored the goal in the game against Barnet but Blackpool were unable to come away with all three points due to a late equaliser fromJohn Akinde. After having managed an opening day victory against Exeter City, Blackpool have been unable to capitalise on the good form shown in pre-season. They suffered a 2-1 loss against Morecambe in the previous game before this draw. The club need to return to winning ways soon and the home match against Wycombe Wanderers could just help them in this regard.

Despite being the head coach of Bolton Academy, Jimmy Phillips is not going to be easily dishing out senior team debuts to the players.

Phillips presently has the additional charge of Bolton’s senior team too after Neil Lennon left the post.

And, many believe as he has helped many youngsters grow through the Academy, he would take this opportunity to give them a bit of exposure at the bigger level.

However, according to Phillips, he might look to try out a few, but, only those whom he would be pretty sure about that this is the right moment to promote them.

Blackpool have finally started climbing up the table after their third consecutive clean sheet at home against Gillingham.

This clean sheet helped the home team get a 1-0 win, which is of great importance especially since it came against a team chasing promotion. Gillingham are second in the table, but they have been looking frail of late. Just two wins in the last four matches meant that Blackpool were in with a chance to get something out of the match. After having stayed unbeaten in the last four matches, Neil McDonald was confident of the same.
