Pre-Match Brief: Huddersfield Town

21 March 2014

Latest Info Ahead of Fixture

Blackpool will aim to make it consecutive home victories when Huddersfield Town travel to Bloomfield Road tomorrow.

Barry Ferguson will have a number of selection dilemmas to contend with, although Steven Davies definitely misses out due to a groin problem.

Former Blackpool midfielder Keith Southern could return to the Huddersfield starting line-up for the game, as Mark Robins side go in search of their first win since Saturday 1 March.

Anthony Gerrard and Joel Lynch remain injury doubts for the visitors, but James Vaughan could feature after returning for the club last weekend.

Manager Views

Barry Ferguson: "We've got a small gap now but we need to make that bigger because the teams below us are going to keep working harder and harder.  The boys know that and I know that."

Mark Robins: "We are under no illusions that we have to be on our game; we have to stand up and be counted."
