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

Blackpool and Ipswich Town both enter their Championship clash at Bloomfield Road on the back of hard-fought midweek wins.

The Tangerines backed up their 2-0 win at Millwall on the opening day by coming back from a goal down to defeat Leeds United 2-1.

Nouha Dicko could start up front for Ian Holloway's men after grabbing the equaliser in midweek, with Kevin Phillips dropping to the bench. Matt Phillips is expected to be recalled to the starting lineup.

Meanwhile, the Tractor Boys overcame Watford 1-0 at Vicarage Road.

Paul Jewell may name an unchanged lineup, although Andy Drury may push for a place in midfield, should Michael Chopra lead the line alone.

Blackpool: Gilks; Crainey, Cathcart, Baptiste, Eardley; Martinez, Osbourne, M Phillips, Taylor-Fletcher, Ince; Dicko

Ipswich Town: Loach; Cresswell, Chambers, Smith, Carson; Drury, Edwards, Emmanuel-Thomas, Martin, Luongo; Chopra

Sports Mole says: 2-1
