Pre-Match Brief: Millwall

11 March 2014

Latest Ahead Of Tonight's Game

Blackpool will play their second home game in a matter of days this evening, with Millwall the visitors to Bloomfield Road.

The Seasiders will welcome Tony McMahon back from suspension for the fixture, although Kevin Foley remains a doubt after being forced off against AFC Bournemouth. Striker Andy Keogh is ineligible to play due to the terms of his loan agreement.

Former Pool boss Ian Holloway will be in charge of the visitors but two other ex-Blackpool connections, Danny Shittu and DJ Campbell, look set to miss out for The Lions due to injury.

Manager Views

Barry Ferguson: "I'd have preferred a game on Sunday morning but that wasn't going to happen. They've had three days to give us a response out on this pitch."   

Ian Holloway: "I'm going up there with my new team to try and do something that might upset them. We're trying to catch them up in the table."
