Blackpool – Derby preview: latest form, news, and potential lineups

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for this duel, including our predicted Blackpool vs Derby lineups.

Blackpool

Blackpool edged Barnsley 1-0 away on Saturday. The Seasiders were lucky to win this game as they spent the majority of it defending deep. However, Rhodes scored in the third consecutive match and his contributions have been the main reason why Blackpool secured 3 wins in their last 4. 

Continue to struggle in midfield and very rarely dominate the ball. The form remains unpredictable too with almost every game so far very close and decided by a single moment for either side. 

The options in defence remain restricted. Joseph-Gabriel is a long-term absentee. Also, starting centre-backs Lyons and Pennington are considered touch-and-go for Tuesday night. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Grimshaw (GK), Connolly, Casey, Husband, Dale, Weir, Norburn, Dougall, Hamilton, Lavery & Rhodes 

Derby

Derby drew 0-0 at home vs Cambridge on Saturday. The Rams had nearly 60% possession in this match but they created precious little in terms of clear chances and had to settle for a point. 

Only 4 wins through 9 rounds but on the road the Rams know how to cause problems. They managed to win 3 of their 4 away league games so far. 

Important playmaker Bair is fit again and could return to the starting lineup The other key inner midfielder Hourihane is also nearing a return from injury and he could play some part. 

Some rotation is likely. Both Waghorn and Barkhuizen looked fatigued on Saturday so they could be dropped to the bench now. Sibley and Washington are good alternatives for their positions. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Wildsmith (GK), Nyambe, Cashin, Nelson, Forsyth, Mendez-Laing, Bair, Smith, Sibley, Collins & Washington 

​Starting Lineups

The teams usually announce their starting lineups one hour before the start of the game.
