Blackpool v Accrington preview
Last Updated: 23/08/18 6:07pm
Blackpool's interim manager Terry McPhillips is expected to stick with the same players who earned the Seasiders their first league win of the season when they host Accrington.
McPhillips made seven changes for the win at home to Coventry on Tuesday, with Donervon Daniels making his first start since joining the club for a second time.
Joe Dodoo and Mark Cullen also came into the side on Tuesday, both finding the net in the 2-0 win, and are expected to keep their places for the Lancashire derby. Forward Nathan Delfouneso will hope for a recall after dropping out of the starting line-up while new signing Liam Feeney is eligible but is short of match fitness.
Accrington manager John Coleman is optimistic of making loan additions before the trip to Blackpool. Striker Billy Kee shook off a foot problem to score twice in their 3-2 away win at Oxford on Tuesday and is set to lead the line again.
Offrande Zanzala pushed his case for a start with an impressive display off the bench in that win. Nick Anderton joined Stanley from Blackpool on loan last week and will be ineligible to feature against his parent club.
Blackpool and Accrington Stanley have only faced each other twice before in the Football League, both in League Two, with Accrington winning one and the other ending in a draw.
Blackpool won the most recent clash between the two sides, running out 2-1 winners at the Wham Stadium in last season's EFL Trophy.
Blackpool have only failed to score in one of their last 23 home matches in all competitions, a goalless draw with Bristol Rovers in January.
Since the start of the 2015-16 season, Billy Kee has scored 60 goals in all competitions for Accrington - 33 more than any other Accrington player.
Accrington have won each of their last 23 league matches in which they've gone ahead since losing 3-2 away at Stevenage in October 2017.
