Blackpool vs Fleetwood preview
Last Updated: 21/04/19 1:00pm
Blackpool expect to be without defender Ollie Turton for the visit of local rivals Fleetwood on Monday.
Turton limped off 17 minutes in to Friday's goalless draw with Scunthorpe with a hamstring injury and was replaced by Liam Feeney. Jimmy Ryan is back in training after a long-term knee injury but did not make the substitute's bench at Glanford Park.
Goalkeeper Mark Howard remains a long-term absentee after rupturing his Achilles tendon in March.
Harry Souttar will again miss out for Fleetwood as he serves the second of a three-match ban. Harrison Biggins replaced Souttar in the 1-1 home draw with Peterborough on Friday.
Craig Morgan and Dean Marney are yet to feature since returning to training from a lay-off and will be pushing for involvement. Joey Barton recalled Lewis Baines and Dan Mooney from loan spells at Stockport and Chester respectively but did not include either in his 18 against Peterborough.
Blackpool have won each of their three games in all competitions against Fleetwood at Bloomfield Road, most recently a 2-1 victory in April 2018.
Fleetwood recorded their first ever win against Blackpool in the reverse fixture in October, with the Fishermen winless in their previous six (D2 L4).
Blackpool have won eight points from a possible 30 from their last 10 league games at Bloomfield Road (W1 D5 L4), this after earning 21 points from their previous 10 such games (W6 D3 L1).
Fleetwood have won four of their last seven away games in league action (L3) - their previous four away wins came over a run of 18 games.
Each of Blackpool's last three goals on home soil have been scored by defenders (Michael Nottingham, Marc Bola and Curtis Tilt).
