Preview: Blackpool vs. Millwall

©
©

IAN Holloway will be forced to shuffle his pack for Tuesday's trip to Blackpool, with DJ Campbell, Scott Malone and Danny Shittu all ruled out.

The trio sustained injuries in the win over Derby at the weekend and have not travelled to Lancashire with the Lions squad.

Paul Robinson is set to deputise at centre back in place of Shittu, while Fede Bessone is in line to make his first start for the club in Malone's absence.

Martyn Woolford or Simeon Jackson could come in for Campbell in attack.

Shane Lowry was a doubt with a sore foot but manager Ian Holloway has confirmed that the Australian will be fit to start.

Jermaine Easter (thigh) and Nicky Bailey (back) are out.

Millwall loanee Andy Keogh, who joined Blackpool on the final day of the January transfer window, is not eligible to play in tonight's game.

Tangerines full back Kevin Foley has a shoulder problem and is set to be replaced by Tony McMahon, who is available again after suspension.

Jack Robinson, however, is banned.

    Not too bothered about campbell, not exactly set the world on fire since his arrival, would prefer Woolford anyway. Bit concerned about Bessone, last time out, on the field for 5 minutes got booked. Robbo did really well on saturday, replacing Shittu, so should not be a problem. Good news about Lowry. Midfield did a brilliant job on Derby, so more of the same tonight. COYL.......

      @rikkiatwall: bit of a daft post, it was actually the highlight of the game him putting there right winger over the boards.

    Nearly at Blackpool, have a few jars like we did at Derby. Then a good win, at least a draw!

    Not too sure about Bessone. If Jackson plays up front, I'd rather see Woolford in at left back. Really hope we can continue on from Saturday, get a win, although will be hard up there on a Tuesday night. Hope we stand firm and don't make any individual errors, we saw Saturday what happens when we hold it together and don't concede a silly goal. Would like to see Dunne continue at right back, as changing both left and right back for the match, and a central defender is too much change. COYL bring home the points!

    I'd take a guess at...
    Forde
    Dunne, Robinson, Lowry, Bessone
    Williams, Upson
    Martin, Garvan, Woolford
    Morison
    But taking out Woolford or Martin for McDonald or Jackson is also a possibility

      I think the plan is to keep Dunne fresh for Saturday, so likely be Fredericks in at RB. I make you right with the rest of the team.

      @Peckhamlad: proud to have known Bob, as he always said 'some people struggle with English as a second language, I struggle with it as a first'.

      He never wavered either as a trade unionist or as a supporter if his beloved Lions.

      God bless.

      @Peckhamlad: Yes, a minute silence at the New Den would be nice on Saturday. Bob Crow always tempered.

    Can't see Martin being dropped. Hopefully he employs 2 wingers on the wings (Woolly + Martin) and that Bessone has a good game. Could always put Lowry at LB and Beevers in at CB with Robbo if he turns out to be a dud.
