The Seasiders pair remain a doubt for the fixture at Bloomfield Road after missing the 1-0 defeat away to Derby County on Good Friday.

Husband has been out with a thigh problem since the beginning of the month, after sustaining the injury in the early stages of the 0-0 draw with Portsmouth. Meanwhile, Morgan’s absence has been due to a knee issue he picked up against Leyton Orient at Brisbane Road at the end of February.

Following the loss at Pride Park, Blackpool boss Neil Critchley said: “We’re in tomorrow so we’ll assess them again, that’s a decision we’ll make over the next 48 hours.”

This comes after his comments prior to the match, where he stated: “Whether they (Morgan and Husband) are going to appear or over the weekend would be doubtful. They’re stepping forward all of the time. If you’re ever going to take a calculated risk it would be at this stage of the season, there’s no point waiting right until the end.

"It’s something we’ll discuss, both Albie and Hubby are different with different injuries, and I know they want to get back as soon as possible, so we’re not ruling them out. They’re making big strides quickly and I know they’ll want to put themselves forward.”

Meanwhile, Jordan Rhodes will definitely miss the Wycombe game, after it was confirmed it’ll be “touch and go” whether he’ll feature again this season after damaging ligaments in his knee in the 1-0 defeat to Wigan Athletic prior to the international break.

Andy Lyons is also ruled out for the foreseeable with an ACL injury, which he underwent surgery for last week.
