Nathan Delfouneso: Pushing for Blackpool start

Blackpool duo Nathan Delfouneso and Ludo Sylvestre are pushing for starts in Saturday's Championship clash with Peterborough at Bloomfield Road.

Sylvestre replaced Neal Eardley at half-time during last weekend's comeback victory over Watford, while Matt Derbyshire made way for fellow forward Delfouneso before a 1-0 deficit turned into a 2-1 triumph.

Boss Paul Ince will hope to build on his first victory in charge on the Seasiders' return to Bloomfield Road, but he must once again do without Gary Taylor-Fletcher (hamstring), Bob Harris (toe) and long-term victim Ian Evatt (knee).

Peterborough travel to Blackpool with an unchanged squad.

That means on-loan trio Davide Petrucci (hamstring), Alex Pritchard (ankle) and Scott Wootton, who will miss the remainder of the season with a hamstring injury, and long-term absentee Peter Grant (knee) remain on the sidelines.

Posh boss Darren Ferguson changed his starting line-up for the first time in four matches against Leeds in midweek, recalling Nathaniel Knight-Percival and Kane Ferdinand in midfield at the expense of Grant McCann and Nathaniel Mendez-Laing.

Ferguson could revert back to naming the same team at Bloomfield Road but he has options should he wish to make changes again.

The fit-again Kgosi Ntlhe, fellow defenders Craig Alcock and Shaun Brisley, midfielders Joe Newell, McCann and Mendez-Laing and striker Tyrone Barnett are all available for recalls.
