Blackpool defender Craig Cathcart is doubtful for the the visit of the Toffees.

Cathcart suffered a recurrence of a back injury in the win over West Brom on Monday.

Manager Ian Holloway has already addressed the problem by withdrawing Dekel Keinan and Rob Edwards from a reserve game in midweek.

Everton midfielder Jack Rodwell is unlikely to return to for the game against the Seasiders.

The 19-year-old has made a quicker than expected recovery from an ankle injury and was unused substitute against Stoke last week but is still not fully fit despite a reserves run out.

He could again be given a place on the bench but manager David Moyes all but ruled out a start.

Leon Osman faces a further six weeks out after undergoing surgery on his injured ankle while Marouane Fellaini (hamstring) and Ross Barkley (broken leg) are still out.

Striker Victor Anichebe (knee) is stepping up his comeback and returns to full training today after playing 20 minutes in the reserves in midweek.

Blackpool (from): Gilks, Kingson, Keinan, Edwards, Eardley, Taylor-Fletcher, Crainey, Evatt, Adam, Vaughan, Varney, Ormerod, Campbell, Grandin, Harewood, Southern, Carney, Cathcart, Basham, Euell, Sylvestre, Demontagnac, Phillips.

Everton (from): Howard, Heitinga, Distin, Jagielka, Baines, Neville, Cahill, Pienaar, Arteta, Rodwell, Saha, Beckford, Bilyaletdinov, Yakubu, Gueye, Hibbert, Coleman, Mustafi, Silva, Baxter, Duffy, Mucha.
