Match Preview

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. 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.

Holloway is happy to be back at home after learning some harsh lessons on his travels. Holloway's side play only their second game at Bloomfield Road since winning promotion.

Building work has meant four of the Tangerines' first five games have been on the road and two of them have proved rude awakenings - a 6-0 hammering at Arsenal and a 4-0 thrashing by Chelsea.

"Whatever we'd have done we'd still be out there now languishing against a team that are light years ahead of us," said Holloway of the Stamford Bridge drubbing.

"Whatever I did, whatever I tried they were better than us.

"At half-time it was already done and dusted - they were that good, they scored a goal every 10 minutes. But let's move on. We've got Blackburn at home.

"It'll be nice to have a home game. We have only had one home game and that seems a lifetime ago. When I walked across the grass I thought I was on someone else's pitch. I want to try to score some goals. If we can do that, we might be a handful."

Blackburn will be without the quartet of David Dunn, Keith Andrews, Vince Grella and Jason Roberts. Grella sustained a hamstring problem in last weekend's draw against Fulham and did not feature in the Carling Cup defeat at Aston Villa in midweek.

Dunn has not played since the end of August while Andrews and Roberts have yet to feature this season because of injury.

Manager Sam Allardyce will make changes to the side he named for the Carling Cup, with Paul Robinson returning in goal.

Holloway's success with the Seasiders deserves to be ranked alongside any of the achievements of Sir Alex Ferguson or Jose Mourinho, according to Allardyce.

Holloway, working on a shoestring budget, won promotion to the Barclays Premier League via the play-offs in his first year in charge.

Having taken Leicester down to League One in his only season in charge at the Walkers Stadium and then spent 12 months out of work it was a remarkable turnaround in fortunes for the Bristolian.

Allardyce, who takes his side to face the club he managed in the mid-1990s, believes Holloway's work has not been appreciated as much as it should.

"He has been a good manager for many years," he said.

"This is a major achievement and there are not many managers who have done what he has done and he should be very proud of his successes.

"When you look at what resources they have we don't give them the plaudits they deserve because they are a small, unfashionable club. But in terms of resources and finance it lies alongside anything Alex Ferguson or Jose Mourinho has done, in reality."

Match Report

Rovers get maximum return with late Emerton strike Brett Emerton grabbed a last-gasp winner as Blackburn snatched a 2-1 victory in a compelling Lancashire derby at Blackpool. The Australian struck four minutes into injury time after Blackpool substitute Matt Phillips thought he had earned a point with an 87th-minute equaliser at Bloomfield Road. Blackburn had led since the 20th minute of the Barclays Premier League encounter when the otherwise excellent Charlie Adam inexplicably headed into his own net. It was only Blackburn's second win of the season and brought relief to their manager Sam Allardyce - sacked by Blackpool 14 years ago - after squandering leads in four previous games. Defeat was harsh on the Seasiders in their first league meeting with their neighbours for 30 years. They started and finished strongly and Adam went close to making amends for his blunder three times. Goalkeepers Matthew Gilks and Paul Robinson both had fine individual games in a match characterised by free-flowing attack, and both sides hit the woodwork. It was Blackpool who made the better start. After his defensive tactics at Chelsea backfired last week, manager Ian Holloway gave his players licence to get forward. Brett Ormerod and Marlon Harewood returned in a three-man front line with DJ Campbell and the Seasiders' intentions were immediately clear as they went close to claiming a second-minute lead. Gary Taylor-Fletcher first raced through to reach a Neal Eardley cross but saw his volley deflected wide. The hosts then hit the woodwork from the resulting corner as David Vaughan's cross was met by a firm Ormerod header. His effort was on target but Michel Salgado managed to get his head in the way and the ball ricocheted onto the crossbar before being cleared. Blackpool threatened again when Ormerod delivered a dangerous cross but Gael Givet put the ball behind for a corner and Vaughan then curled a shot narrowly wide. Blackpool's good early work was undone after 20 minutes as Adam, one of the stars of last season's promotion campaign, had a complete aberration. The Scotland international was under no pressure as a Blackburn attack began to fizzle out. Nikola Kalinic's flick-on posed no danger as it fell to Adam six yards out but his attempt to cushion a header back to Gilks completely wrongfooted the goalkeeper. The ball bounced into the centre of the net and Blackburn, having started to retreat, celebrated an unexpected gift. Rovers were then inches away from a second six minutes later as Christopher Samba met a Morten Gamst Pedersen free-kick with a deft header against the post. Blackpool struggled to clear but escaped further damage as Kalinic blasted wide after a goalmouth scramble. Adam had a chance to redeem himself with a 25-yard free-kick after Taylor-Fletcher was checked in full flow, but the wall blocked his powerful drive. Kalinic had another good chance before the break but struck the side-netting after being teed up on the edge of the area by Pedersen. Blackpool were fortunate not to concede again early in the second half as El-Hadji Diouf began to terrorise Eardley down the left. The former Liverpool forward cut the hosts open before setting up Emerton inside the box, but Gilks parried his drive.Diouf was given chance to cross again but Kalinic's elaborate attempt at a volley flew wide. Diouf whipped in another cross soon after and Gilks produced an even better save to keep out a Phil Jones header from point-blank range. Jones blocked an Ormerod shot at the other end and the veteran Blackpool striker then hit the side-netting after good work by the tenacious Vaughan and Campbell. Kalinic endured more misfortune when he headed over the crossbar and Adam went close at the other end with a back-post header that drifted across the face of goal. Eardley almost turned it in but agonisingly failed to get a touch. Blackpool turned up the heat and Taylor-Fletcher forced a brilliant save from Robinson with a shot curling into the corner. Robinson was then needed again to palm over an effort from Adam which took a wicked deflection. Pressure finally paid off as Holloway made an inspired substitution by replacing Eardley with Phillips. Phillips had barely been on the field a minute when he jinked his way into the box, beat Givet and found the bottom corner. Blackpool thought they had claimed a point but Blackburn had other ideas and snatched victory when a Benjani Mwaruwari shot was blocked and Emerton stabbed home.
