Seasiders boss low on numbers
Defender Rob Edwards is suspended after being sent off for the second time this year in Tuesday's 2-0 home win over Middlesbrough. Danny Coid (hamstring), Daniel Nardiello (groin), Neal Eardley (knee) and Billy Clarke (knee) all remain sidelined through injury. The Seasiders are in buoyant mood after ending a run of three successive defeats with victory over Boro in midweek. Holloway has now challenged his men to continue their push for a coveted play-off spot with victory against the lowly Royals. He said: "We need to keep going if we're going to have a good season and that's what I've been saying all along."
