Seasiders manager Paul Ince has yet to clinch a win since taking over at the former Premier League outfit, but the 45-year-old will be encouraged by last weekend's display in a goalless draw with Leicester City, which has kept them 17th in the table.
In contrast, the Robins are struggling at the bottom of the standings on just 34 points, but a pulsating 5-3 victory over Barnsley could kick-start a much-needed run of form for the club.
