They won their last game 1-0 at Gigg Lane versus Bury, courtesy of a fantastic, late Josh Morris goal scored from a free-kick.

Blackpool also earnt three points last weekend with a 1-0 win against AFC Wimbledon, and are positioned just outside the play-offs in seventh.

In his pre-match interview, Graham Alexander revealed that he will have the same squad available to him as last weekend, with no new injury concerns.

However, Luke Williams, who has had an operation on his hamstring injury and faces two-to-three months out, and Jonny Margetts (knee) will not be involved again. 

The two sides last met in 2016 with the Tangerines winning 5-0. They were three up inside 30 minutes, meaning United were faced with an uphill task.

Our last win over them came in April 2006, when Billy Sharp scored a late winner during a 1-0 victory at Glanford Park.

Having joined on loan until January from Newcastle United, Sean Longstaff has hit the ground running for Blackpool.

The 19-year-old has scored four goals in four league games since the start of the season and is looking like a great prospect.

He has also played in the Scottish Premier League for Kilmarnock during a loan spell in the 2016-17 season.
