Blackpool injury news and potential return dates as four out for Pompey

Latest injury news and potential return dates of Blackpool ahead of their EFL League One clash with Pompey at Fratton Park.

Blackpool are in League One action at the weekend as they travel to Fratton Park to face league leaders Portsmouth.

The Tangerines unlike Pompey were in league action at the weekend and put four past Shrewsbury Town. Jake Beesley scored twice, whilst Jordan Rhodes and summer signing Kyle Joseph were also on target.

Pompey's match was postponed because of international call-ups and they were afforded a break. John Mousinho's men are top of the league by a point and have yet to taste defeat this season. Blackpool do have a good record against sides in the top-half, and a point would be seemed a success.

The 25-year-old spent the 2022/23 campaign down in Hampshire, and got two goals in 50 appearances for the Blues. He's returned to Bloomfield Road and is pushing to be involved more having been a sub 10 times in the league this term.

At the weekend, we saw the return of Kenny Dougall and Ollie Casey who both served their bans for their respective suspensions. Dougall picked up five yellow cards earning him a ban, whilst Casey was shown a straight red card against Peterborough United.

Blackpool are approaching a fairly busy period, and there will be several weeks in which there are two fixtures. The festive period also means that fixtures are packed in to a short space of time, and with the club still in the FA Cup and the EFL Trophy then rotation is key.

Flick through to see all the Blackpool players currently nursing an injury, and whether they'll be available for this weekend's crunch clash.
