Squad sheets: Blackpool v Wolverhampton Wanderers
3 years ago

Fittingly, change will be the order of the day at Bloomfield Road. Blackpool, whose manager Ian Holloway faces sanction for making 10 of them in the recent Premier League game at Aston Villa, have not defeated Wolves for 42 years. Their efforts to overturn that statistic will not include goalkeeper Matt Gilks, who is definitely sidelined with a broken kneecap, so Richard Kingson is expected to start. Wolves will attempt to halt their trend of conceding ? without a clean sheet all season, they also sport the division's worst away form. Richard Gibson
