It's been suggested it could be moved to either the Friday or Sunday, however further deliberations are required with the EFL before a new date is confirmed.

Blackpool FC said: "The club is currently in discussions with the EFL regarding a potential date change for the home fixture against Lincoln City, which is currently scheduled for Saturday, September 28.

"Confirmation will follow in due course."

Lincoln will line up in the third tier this coming season after claiming the League Two title last term, their second promotion in just three years.

Their squad features former Seasider Neal Eardley, who made over 100 appearances for Pool between 2009 and 2013.
