Blackpool predicted XI and bench V Derby County: Decision on Jordan Rhodes replacement for Good Friday game

Blackpool are back in action following the international break as they travel to Pride Park to take on Derby County on Good Friday.

The Seasiders face a tough battle for a place in the play-offs, with Oxford United, Stevenage, Lincoln City and Leyton Orient all battling for the final spot.

In terms of injuries, James Husband (thigh) and Albie Morgan (knee) both remain doubtful but are making progress in their recoveries, while it’ll be “touch and go” whether Jordan Rhodes features again this season due to knee ligament problems, which he sustained in the 1-0 defeat to Wigan Athletic just under a fortnight ago.
