Blackpool have lost their last 4 matches, two of them against promotion rivals QPR and Burnley. Although recently falling down to 11th in the table, Blackpool are only 13 points off the top of the table and will hope to build a promotion charge around top scorer Thomas Ince who has netted 6 times this season.
Manager Paul Ince will have Ricardo Fuller and Angel back from suspension, after they both picked up red cards in the shock defeat to Yeovil town. The Tangerines will be without midfielder Isiah Osbourne and centre-back Gary Mackenzie.
Leeds have a good home record this season and are unbeaten in 7 at Elland Road, however they have struggled with their away form. Recently being held 0-0 by bottom of the league Barnsley. Their recent record against Blackpool hasn’t been great, but they will be looking to top striker Ross McCormack who has scored 17 goals this season to fire them ahead.
Manager Brian McDermott will probably be without influential Lithuanian defender Marius Zaliukas who was on the receiving end of a stamp tackle v Barnsley and Luke Murphy is suspended. Jamie Ashdown, Noel Hunt and David Norris remain sidelined through injury.
