Sports Mole previews Saturday's Championship clash between Blackpool and Barnsley at Bloomfield Road.

Barnsley can extend their unbeaten run in the Championship to three matches on Saturday when they face Blackpool at Bloomfield Road.

Tuesday's 2-0 win over promotion-chasing Millwall saw the Tykes move to within four points of safety.

Meanwhile, a fifth home win of the season could lift the Seasiders into the top half of the table.

Defender Reece Wabara could make his debut for Blackpool following his recent loan move from Manchester City, but they will have to do without Kevin Phillips after his loan switch to Crystal Palace.

Jason Scotland's brace against Millwall could earn the veteran striker a starting place for the visitors.
