Danny Philliskirk comes into the side to replace Bright Osayi-Samuel for Blackpool's clash against Stevenage this afternoon.

It is the only change from the side that faced Brackley Town in the FA Cup second round last weekend.

Kyle Vassell comes back into the starting line-up to partner Jamille Matt in attack, after missing out the Checkatrade Trophy win against Doncaster Rovers during the week.

Colin Daniel misses out through a hamstring injury, while striker Armand Gnanduillet drops out of the squad altogether.

The Seasiders will be looking to return to the League Two play-offs with a win today against Stevenage, who are only one place below them in the league. Despite being in a good run of form on the road, they haven't won at home since September.

Stevenage have made two changes from their 2-0 win during the week against bottom-of-the-table Newport County.

Stevenage: Day, King, Franks, Wilkinson, Schumache, Pett, McKirdy, Wells, Lee, Cowans, Henry

Subs: Preston, McAnuff, Liburd, Gorman, Tonge, Godden, Kerr

Blackpool: Slocombe, Mellor, Aldred, Robertson, Taylor, Philliskirk, Payne, Pugh, Potts, Vassell, Matt

Subs: Lyness, Nolan, Aimson, McAlister, Yeates, Osayi-Samuel, Cullen

Referee: John Brooks
