Preview: Reading vs. Blackpool

Sports Mole previews the match between Reading and Blackpool in the Championship.

Blackpool travel to the Madejski Stadium to play Reading on Tuesday looking to end a run of 11 games without a win.

That period of poor form has seen Paul Ince depart Bloomfield Road to be replaced by caretaker boss Barry Ferguson, who started his tenure with a 1-1 draw against Doncaster Rovers.

Andy Halliday and David Goodwillie could be handed starts after coming off the bench at the weekend.

Reading have returned to the Championship playoffs over the past two weeks, but they did fall to a 2-0 defeat at Ipswich Town at the weekend.

Nick Blackman could come into contention if manager Nigel Adkins decides to change his attack against the Seasiders.
