Blackpool make the long trip to Bournemouth this weekend with both sides desperate to claim all three points.

Blackpool are currently sitting in the relegation places and with the Cherries only four points above them it is the proverbial ‘6 pointer’.

AFC Bournemouth Team News:

Bournemouth are of course struggling with injuries. Eddie Howe and Shaun Cooper will both miss this game along with Steve Fletcher and Dani Rodrigues.

O’Driscoll has moved to bring in Aaron Brown from Reading. The central defender formally of Tamworth stands at a giant 6ft 4′ and will add some much needed height to the Cherries back four.

Player to watch: Brett Pitman

This will be his 3rd start in a row for the Cherries and the hitman is yet to hit the target. It will only be a matter of time, so put your money on the youngster for first goal scorer this weekend.

Blackpool Team News:

Blackpool are set to shuffle the pack with the Seasiders expected to give a debut to Andy Taylor and also bring in Tony Butler and Neil Wood who both return from suspension.

Jason Wilcox, Danny Coid and Phil Doughty are all defintely out with Keigan Parker and Marc Joseph both struggling also.

Player to watch: Neil Wood

Returning from suspension, Wood will return to the Blackpool midfield and will be eager to impress.
