The Seasiders travel to Glanford Park on the back of an impressive start to life back in League One following last season’s promotion.

After losing their opening game at Bradford they have beaten the MK Dons, Oldham and AFC Wimbledon as well as drawing at Doncaster.

Bowyer said: “I really can’t wait. We have learned a lot about our players in the last five games but this one especially because they have got a wonderful manager in Graham Alexander and his assistant, Chris Lucketti.
