Same again for Holloway
Blackpool manager Ian Holloway is expected to name an unchanged side for the visit of Millwall.
Lomana LuaLua, Callum McManaman and Ludovic Sylvestre were drafted into the starting line-up as the Seasiders ran riot with a 5-0 win over Leeds at Elland Road on Wednesday.
LuaLua - who scored a brace on his full debut - and McManaman were part of an impressive front three alongside hat-trick hero Jonjo Shelvey, meaning top-scorer Kevin Phillips is set for a place on the bench once more.
Gary Taylor-Fletcher remains on the sidelines with a pelvis problem, while Elliot Grandin continues his rehabilitation from a foot injury.
Billy Clarke and Matt Phillips return from their loans at Sheffield United next week and will add yet more competition to Holloway's forward line after the international break.
Millwall boss Kenny Jackett has no new injury worries ahead of the trip.
Defender Jordan Stewart and strikers John Marquis and Shaun Batt remain the in-form Lions' only injury absentees.
Full-back Stewart has been out for three weeks with a groin problem, Marquis is still recovering from a hernia operation and Batt is building up his fitness after a cruciate injury.
Jackett has named the same starting line-up for the past three matches and seen his side pick up three wins, scoring 10 goals and conceding just once.
However, winger James Henry is pushing for a start after his introduction from the bench following a goalless first half helped spark Tuesday's 3-0 victory over Coventry.
Super-sub Phillips steadies Seasiders
Kevin Phillips made an instant impact from the bench to give Blackpool a 1-0 win against in-form Millwall.
Among the substitutes for the second time in a week, Phillips had only been on the pitch for two minutes when he emphatically found the top corner from the edge of the area with an hour gone.
Millwall had found the net 10 times in a run of three straight wins but only threatened sporadically against a miserly Seasiders backline in which Alex Baptiste excelled.
A late onslaught from the visitors failed to materialise and Ian Holloway's side held out for back-to-back victories for the first time since the opening games of the season to move into the play-off places.
Blackpool made one enforced change form Wednesday's 5-0 thrashing of Leeds as Neal Eardley came into the defence in place of Ian Evatt, who collected his fifth booking of the season at Elland Road.
Kenny Jackett named the same Millwall side that recorded consecutive victories over Leicester, Ipswich and Coventry.
Following some quiet opening exchanges Blackpool midfielder Keith Southern brought the game to life in the eighth minute.
First Lions goalkeeper David Forde tipped his well struck 25-yard drive around the post, and from the resulting corner Southern found space for a free header that was cleared off the line by Jack Smith
With 20 minutes on the clock Smith proved considerably less reliable when his untimely slip allowed Neal Eardley to advance down the right flank and cut back to Southern who skied his effort from the edge of the area.
Lomana LuaLua, fresh from a midweek brace on his full Blackpool debut, charged at the visiting defence in the 25th minute and skilfully shifted the ball onto his left foot to bring a splendid save out of Forde as his shot arched towards the corner.
Millwall finally made an impression in their opponents penalty area when top scorer Darius Henderson peeled off to the far post and steered Liam Feeney's corner goalwards, only for Baptiste to intervene.
Baptiste caused some set piece problems of his own at the other end but headed over when he connected with Ludovic Sylvestre's delivery.
The deadlock remained in place as the hour approached and Holloway withdrew Southern to introduce Phillips.
Within minutes the veteran striker made the breakthrough with a sublime curling effort on the turn from the edge of the area.
Blackpool failed to effectively press home the advantage and Baptiste was forced to scramble clear after Liam Trotter wrought havoc in the home side's box.
Phillips almost doubled his tally with five minutes remaining when he scuffed Eardley's cross against the post.
