Sports Mole previews Paul Ince's first home match in charge of Blackpool against Leicester City.

Paul Ince will take charge of Blackpool for the first time at Bloomfield Road when Leicester City are the visitors this Saturday.

The former England midfielder oversaw his first game as manager of the Seasiders on Wednesday evening - a match that ended in a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Leeds United.

Ince's side have struggled to string positive results together in front of their own supporters this season, having won just five times from a possible 16. As a result, their chances of returning to the Premier League currently look bleak.

Early reports have suggested that Nathan Delfouneso could be given a starting role up front by Ince, while former Manchester City defender Reece Wabara has also been tipped to feature.

Unlike their hosts, Leicester do harbour a realistic chance of gaining promotion. Away from home they've collected 18 points and found the net on 17 occasions.

The Foxes have recently added striker Harry Kane from Tottenham Hotspur to their squad, but the England youth international is likely to start the match as a substitute.

However, Chris Wood, David Nugent and Matty James are all expected to be included in the starting lineup.
