Blackpool v Leeds preview

Defender Dunne was forced out of Tuesday night’s defeat to Bournemouth having felt unwell in the warm-up and Lee Clark’s options are stretched at the back with Tony McMahon still suspended and Nyron Nosworthy having left to join Portsmouth.
Jamie O’Hara has missed the last two games with an ankle injury and Bolton loanee Niall Maher has been out of the past three fixtures with a groin problem, so Clark will again check on those two as well.
Henry Cameron (ankle) and Mark Waddington (foot) will not play again this term for a Seasiders team whose relegation cannot be confirmed for definite until after the international break following Wednesday’s results.
Granddi Ngoyi could be included in Leeds’ squad and fellow midfielder Rudy Austin may also return to contention.
January signing Ngoyi, on loan from Palermo until the end of the season, has yet to figure in Neil Redfearn’s squad due to a thigh injury, while a similar problem has sidelined Austin for the last four matches.
Sam Byram was a surprise return in Wednesday night’s win at Fulham following a foot injury and is expected to resume on the right side of midfield.
Striker Steve Morison is pushing for a recall to the starting XI and teenage midfielder Kalvin Phillips is hoping to return to the squad as Leeds bid for their third straight win on the road.
