Martin missed the Tractor Boys’ 0-0 draw against basement club Peterborough on Tuesday evening with a damaged heel, which also ruled him out of last weekend’s stalemate with Bristol City.
The talented winger remains doubtful for the visit of the Seasiders and could join Alex Bruce on the sidelines.
Centre-half Bruce continues to struggle with a groin injury and manager Roy Keane will also be without long-term absentees Richard Wright and Luciano Civelli, who are both out with damaged cruciate ligaments.
However, David Norris is close to returning to first-team action. The 28-year-old has been ruled out with a knee injury but is nearing a return to full fitness.
