SCENE-SETTER

United come into the game after progressing through Group A, in which they won 2-1 at Grimsby Town through a Kevin van Veen brace. drew 1-1 against Leicester City U21s with Ryan Colclough scoring before losing on penalties, and then defeating Sunderland 3-0 through a Lee Novak brace and Abo Eisa goal. United eventually finished second in the group behind Leicester.

League One side Blackpool, now under the management of Simon Grayson, defeated Morecambe 5-1 through goals from Ben Heneghan, Michael Nottingham, Ryan Hardie, Sullay Kaikai and Joe Nuttall, lost 2-1 at Carlisle United with Calum Macdonald notching and defeated Wolves U21s 1-0 via a Rocky Bushiri goal.

TEAM NEWS

Manager Paul Hurst will have a similar squad to the one that faced Port Vale at the weekend to call on.

Yann Songo'o (dislocated toe), Jamie Ward (hamstring), Levi Sutton (hand) and Jordan Hallam (hamstring) all continue to miss out, although Hurst expects the majority of his injured group to be back in contention for the next league game at Forest Green a week on Saturday.

Elsewhere, Regan Slater (ankle) remains absent, while George Miller (quad strain) has been back with the group for a week and returned to the substitutes' bench last week.
