BLACKPOOL v Blackburn: Alex Baptiste faces a spell on the sidelines after injury setback

24 September 2010 10:00
Blackpool are without defender Alex Baptiste as they face Blackburn in only their second home Barclays Premier League match.

The 24-year-old could be out for up to six weeks after suffering a recurrence of an old knee ligament injury.

Surgery: Baptiste will need to find out the full extent of his injury

His absence could see Wales international Neil Eardley, who was substituted at half-time at Chelsea last week, come in at right-back.

Manager Ian Holloway has no other new injury concerns but changes are possible following the 4-0 hammering at Stamford Bridge. Billy Clarke (knee) is a long-term absentee.

Team (from): Gilks, Keinan, Eardley, Taylor-Fletcher, Crainey, Evatt, Adam, Vaughan, Varney, Ormerod, Campbell, Grandin, Harewood, Southern, Carney, Cathcart, Basham, Euell, Sylvestre, Demontagnac, Coid, Husband, Phillips, Edwards, Halstead.
