Chris Long returns to the squad but is only named on the bench.

There is still no place for either Nya Kirby or Elias Sorensen in the 18-man squad.

Marc Bola, Callum Guy, Jimmy Ryan and Max Clayton remain out injured.

The Seasiders will be looking to avoid three defeats on the spin having suffered consecutive losses against Oxford United and Bristol Rovers respectively.

Pool will also be looking to get three points to set them up for Saturday's homecoming fixture at Bloomfield Road against Southend United, where more than 13,000 fans are expected to attend.

Tonight's visitors Stanley sit in 14th place in League One but have won just one of their last 10 games.

They lost 1-0 at home to Coventry City last night.
