Dan Gosling has been handed his first start for Blackpool in this afternoon's Championship clash with Lancashire rivals Wigan Athletic.
The 23-year-old, who is on loan from Newcastle United, replaces Isaac Osbourne as the Tangerines make one change from the side that drew 0-0 at Charlton two weeks ago.
