Gary Bowyer has made three changes to his Blackpool side for tonight's game against league leaders Wigan Athletic.

Kyle Vassell isn't included in the squad, meaning Armand Gnanduillet takes his place in attack.

Jimmy Ryan also returns to the side in place of Jay Spearing, who drops to the bench.

Colin Daniel also starts in midfield, as Callum Cooke misses out through injury.

Blackpool will be huge underdogs for tonight's game, having won just two of their last 18 games in a spell that has seen them drop to just two points above the League One dropzone.

Wigan, meanwhile, remain top of the league despite losing their 16-game unbeaten streak on Saturday in their 3-1 defeat at Southend United.

Wigan: Walton, Byrne, Dunkley, Burn, James, Morsy, Power, Massey, Jacobs, Powell, Grigg

Subs: Jones, Perkins, Walker, Vaughan, Bruce, Roberts, Fulton

Blackpool: Lumley, Mellor, Tilt, Robertson, Turton, Ryan, Longstaff, Solomon-Otabor, Daniel, Delfouneso, Gnanduillet

Subs: Mafoumbi, Taylor, Aimson, Spearing, D'Almeida, Philliskirk, Agyei

Referee: Rob Jones
