Pre-Match Brief: Bolton Wanderers

21 November 2014

Latest Information Ahead of Fixture

Blackpool return to Championship action looking to kick-start their season against Bolton Wanderers tomorrow.

Manager Lee Clark has had two weeks on the training ground with the players as he looks to start a battle for survival, while the visitors arrive on the back of some promising form under Neil Lennon.

Team News

Blackpool will be without the services of Jose Miguel Cubero (ankle), Gary MacKenzie (Achilles) and the Oriol twins for the fixture. Tony McMahon serves the second game of a three-match suspension, but Chris Eagles and Nyron Nosworthy could both debut for the club. 

Mark Davies (knee) is set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines for Bolton, though Darren Pratley and Adam Bogdan are available again. 

Manager Views:

Lee Clark: "I think we are better equipped because the players are understanding what I'm after. They certainly will be fitter after the work we've put in to them in the last two weeks."

Neil Lennon: “Blackpool haven't had the best of times but they've got a good manager who will stabilise them. I'm pleased for Lee."
