Blackpool V Luton at Bloomfield Road : Match Preview

Blackpool hoping to have striker Jamille Matt fit for Luton clash

Forward Jamille Matt could be in contention for a return to Blackpool's squad for the League Two play-off semi-final first leg at home to Luton.

Matt has missed the last three matches with a hamstring injury and although he failed a late fitness test last weekend ahead of the visit of Leyton Orient, another week's recovery may help him.

Defender Will Aimson will hope to keep his place after being recalled as manager Gary Bowyer reverted to a back three last time out.

Striker Kyle Vassell, Blackpool's leading scorer in the league, made his first start since mid-April last weekend and is likely to hang on to his place.

Luton full-back James Justin is a doubt ahead of their trip to Bloomfield Road.

The Hatters young player of the year was stretchered off in the second half of their 3-1 win over Morecambe last week after suffering a blow to his ankle and will be assessed.

Alan Sheehan should return after missing that game with a knock to his ankle sustained in training. If Sheehan is not fit enough to make the starting line-up, Luke Gambin will deputise at left-back.

Winger Danny Green returned to training this week after being sidelined for much of the season with a broken leg but is not fit to feature.
