Blackpool v Carlisle

Blackpool v Carlisle

Blackpool could have a near full-strength squad for Carlisle's visit to Bloomfield Road.

Danny Philliskirk (ankle) was back in the squad last weekend and came on as a late substitute, while Jamille Matt (knee) has trained fully this week.

Boss Gary Bowyer may still be cautious over the striker as he has been out for a month, but he said Mark Cullen (hamstring) will return to the fold.

That would just leave Jack Redshaw still on the sidelines with the shin-splints issue that has plagued him in recent seasons.

Carlisle boss Keith Curle is set to shuffle his line-up after last weekend's 2-2 draw against Leyton Orient.

Curle employed an extra centre-back in Mark Ellis to help counter the O's attacking threat, but is set to return to a more regular formation.

Charlie Wyke is in line to start after replacing Ellis at half-time and almost immediately grabbing his side's opening goal.

Jabo Iberhre is also targeting a recall to the starting line-up after replacing striker Shaun Miller for the last 20 minutes at Brunton Park.
