Blackpool vs Bradford AFC - Blackpool close to full strength for Bradford clash

Blackpool interim boss Terry McPhillips will choose from virtually a full-strength squad for the home game against Bradford.

Defender Ryan McLaughlin and on-loan Derby midfielder Callum Guy both made their debuts in the midweek EFL Trophy defeat at Macclesfield and are in contention.

McPhillips has several selection dilemmas after making wholesale changes against Macclesfield, with the likes of Nathan Delfouneso and Liam Feeney pushing for recalls.

The Seasiders are bidding to extend their unbeaten league run to five matches under McPhillips, who will take charge of his eighth game for the club.

Bradford’s new manager David Hopkin could hand a debut to loan signing David Ball.

Ball’s season-long loan deal was completed with minutes to spare on deadline day and was ratified by the English Football League on Monday.

On-loan Huddersfield teenager Lewis O’Brien is hoping to feature after he was an unused substitute in last week’s defeat at Fleetwood.

Former Livingston boss Hopkin, appointed on Tuesday following the recent sacking of Michael Collins, will monitor winger Sean Scannell, who missed out last week due to a groin injury.
