Latest Information Ahead of Fixture

Blackpool will look to end a five-match losing run when Charlton Athletic arrive at Bloomfield Road this evening.

Manager Lee Clark is expected to make a number of changes for the match, as he looks for a reaction from his side following a disappointing display at Bournemouth.

Jamie O'Hara remains a big doubt with an ankle problem, while Niall Maher will be assessed prior to kick-off. Miles Addison is available again after missing out against his parent club and Michael Jacobs is set for a home debut. Henry Cameron (ankle) and Mark Waddington (foot) remain sidelined.

Rhoys Wiggins (calf) and Johnnie Jackson (leg) are unavailable for Charlton, while Franck Moussa is still sidelined with a knee problem.
