Kazim-Richards may make Rovers return
Gary Bowyer could be boosted by the return of Colin Kazim-Richards as he begins his second spell in caretaker charge of Blackburn this season against Blackpool.
Bowyer oversaw three wins and a draw in four matches before Michael Appleton's appointment for a 67-day reign that was ended by his shock sacking last week.
Turkey international Kazim-Richards has not featured since suffering an ankle injury during February's goalless draw with Leeds but Bowyer expects him to be around the matchday squad.
David Bentley (knee) is also back in training, while Martin Olsson (eye) and his twin brother Markus (hamstring) could further ease the burden of an injury crisis that crippled Rovers in the closing weeks of Appleton's tenure.
Right-backs Adam Henley (hamstring) and Bradley Orr (ribs), midfielder Dickson Etuhu (knee), forward DJ Campbell (ankle) and goalkeeper Paul Robinson (back) all remain in the treatment room.
Blackpool boss Paul Ince will assess the fitness of midfield duo Chris Basham and Barry Ferguson before the trip.
Ferguson, who moved to to Ewood Park in a #7.5million deal from Rangers 10 years ago this summer, suffered a sickening head injury during the Seasiders' 1-0 loss to Peterborough before the international break.
The veteran midfielder received lengthy treatment after being inadvertently kicked in the head by team-mate Isaiah Osbourne, and left the field on a stretcher.
Utility man Basham has not played for the first team since last month's goalless draw at Leicester due to a broken cheekbone, but returned alongside full-back Bob Harris (broken toe) in last week's reserve victory over Sunderland when the latter scored in a 2-1 defeat.
"Both of them have trained this week. They've been doing some running with not much contact," Ince explained on Pool's official website. "We'll have a look at them and see where we go from there."
Ince's son, Tom, declared himself fit to face managerless Rovers earlier this week despite pulling out of England's Under-21 squad for the friendlies against Romania and Austria due to a knee complaint.
Gary Taylor-Fletcher (hamstring) and Ian Evatt (knee) remain out for the long term.
