Gary Bowyer has been forced into making one change to his Blackpool side for tonight's clash against Northampton Town at Bloomfield Road.

Kyle Vassell, who was forced to be withdrawn in the second half of Pool's 5-0 win against Bradford City on Saturday, is replaced by Armand Gnanduillet in attack.

But Pool remain unchanged elsewhere, with Danny Philliskirk returning to the bench.

The Seasiders come into tonight's game looking to build on Saturday's superb thrashing of Bradford City.

Pool's League One safety should be all-but confirmed should they win tonight against a Northampton side who currently find themselves second from bottom.

The Cobblers, who have lost their last three, play their first game tonight under the management of Dean Austin after Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink was sacked.
