The Seasiders, who currently lie 22nd in the table with two points from five matches, went into the international break off the back of a 2-1 loss to Millwall, and will be looking to tighten up their defence after conceding seven goals in their last three matches.
Meanwhile, Blackpool winger Demetri Mitchell has opened up on his mental health struggles after being released by Manchester United last year, and revealed: “Coming towards the end of my contract, I knew that my time was up.
“I didn't think it was going to be [hard] because I already knew that my time was up, but when I was told, it was tough. I knew it was coming, but when you get the news, it still hits you hard.
He added: “My lowest point was not knowing if I would play again. I was probably overthinking and being a bit dramatic, but in my head I was thinking, 'Am I going to play again, am I going to be alright, what am I going to do if I can't play?’
“That period was a very mentally challenging time for me. I tried not to show it as much as possible, but the people around me who are close to me could pick up on it and luckily I had that support.”
