Three Changes as Blues Face Blackpool
Saturday, 10th Oct 2020 14:23
Town boss Paul Lambert has made three changes from the team which drew 1-1 away against the MK Dons for this afternoon’s game at Blackpool with Myles Kenlock, Emyr Huws and Alan Judge coming into the XI.
Kenlock is at left-back for Stephen Ward, who was expected to miss out with the achilles injury he suffered at Stadium MK, Huws takes over in midfield for Jon Nolan, who is left out as a precaution due to a calf strain, and Judge comes in for Freddie Sears, who drops to the bench.
Loanees Mark McGuinness and Keanan Bennetts are both included in the 18 for the first time, while Luke Woolfenden and Kayden Jackson are also among the subs.
Former Town midfielder Grant Ward and ex-loanee Luke Garbutt, making his full league debut, both start for the Seasiders.
Striker Gary Madine is handed his first start of the season, while new addition Jordan Gabriel makes his league debut for the home side.
Blackpool: Maxwell (c), Gabriel, Robson, Anderson, Yates, Madine, Ward, Turton, Ekpiteta, Hamilton, Garbutt. Subs: Sims, Thorniley, Williams, Mitchell, Kemp, Antwi, Lubala.
Town: Holy, Chambers (c), Nsiala, Wilson, Kenlock, Dozzell, Huws, Bishop, Judge, Edwards, Hawkins. Subs: McGuinness, Woolfenden, Jackson, Lankester, Bennetts, Sears, Cornell. Referee: Christopher Sarginson (Staffordshire).

Climbing Up the Walls by Mullet
The world has undoubtedly changed and with it, until some indeterminate point, football has done too. Not only have we seen another club disappear as the fans of Macclesfield joined those of Bury in being locked out of the game, we might count ourselves lucky to only be locked out of Portman Road for our own good.
A Head in the Right Place by NormEmerges
A nice victory against Wigan, well played the Town, and you achieved it without what many consider our best player. For the second match in a row, Flynn Downes was left out because “his head wasn’t in the right place”.
Pyramid Strong by Mullet
On Friday the members of League One voted by majority to instigate a salary cap. In doing so they not only limit everybody in the division to spending £2.5m per season, but they limit themselves in making the transition to established second tier side or beyond.
We Should Encourage the Club and the League to Stream All Games by rugbytomc
In an ideal world, all League One clubs for next season would take the extra steps of temperature checks at the turnstiles with entry refused for anyone with a temperature and also insist on every fan entering the ground wearing a mask for the entirety of their time in the ground.
Euro Glory for Town by clivebleedingthomas
This was the season in which we had a realistic chance of winning the Treble - it sounds like complete fantasy now, but it happened. Our hopes of FA Cup glory had been finished, along with Kevin Beattie’s career as a Town player, at Villa Park.
