West Bromwich Albion are aiming to avoid a fifth consecutive away defeat as they travel to Bloomfield Road to face Blackpool in the EFL Championship.

Currently overachieving significantly, Blackpool will be looking to hunt down the gap between themselves and the top-six.

  • Team news

Jake Livermore is currently suspended after picking up a red card for a high-footed challenge during the defeat to Huddersfield Town, however, the decision is currently being appealed by the club.

Kean Bryan is ruled out with an ACL injury that will keep him out until the end of the campaign.

Danish forward Kenneth Zohore will also find himself knocked off the road to redemption after suffering a setback that means he's unavailable for selection.

Blackpool goalkeeper Chris Maxwell was substituted off during the Tangerines' final game before the international break, and boss Neil Critchley says the injury will keep him out for 'a good few weeks.'

Joint-top scorer Shayne Lavery made his return from injury during the Seasiders' score draw with Swansea City last weekend and is likely to feature on Tuesday night against the Baggies.

Centre-back Richard Keogh suffered a strained calf that ruled him out of the Swansea draw, however, he is expected to be available for this one.

Adding to the already lengthy injury list, full-back Luke Garbutt will also miss out after suffering ligament damage in the loss to Stoke City.

Form guide

Blackpool currently perch in 10th position and are overachieving significantly following their promotion from EFL League One.

Critchley can only be praised for the work he's done with this Tangerines side as they continue to defy expectations and propel themselves toward the play-offs.

The Seasiders haven't won in three games, but they'll be hoping they can continue to drive through injury issues to continue their overachievement. 

Albion lost last time out against Huddersfield as pressure began to mount on manager Valerien Ismael following another turgid performance from his side.

The Baggies have lost their last four away games and will hope that they can solve the riddle of being the visiting side as they head to Bloomfield Road.

Ones to watch

Alex Mowatt

After returning from injury against Huddersfield, Alex Mowatt will be hoping he can begin to turn the screws of the  West Brom midfield.

Picking up vital goals against Blackburn Rovers, Sheffield United and Cardiff City, the former Barnsley man has proved to be a fantastic addition to Ismael's ranks after signing on a free in the summer.

Baggies fans will be hoping Mowatt can reignite the form he showcased pre-injury, possibly starting here against Blackpool.

Jerry Yates

Joint-top scorer for the Tangerines, Jerry Yates has proved a valuable prospect during his time at the club.

Leading the line often alongside Lavery, Yates has scored five crucial goals so far this season and the 25-year-old will be looking to add to his tally in this one.
