Match Preview

Duo set for Seasiders return Blackpool pair Matt Phillips and Matt Gilks are both expected to return to the squad for the home clash with Peterborough. Manager Ian Holloway made 11 changes for Thursday night's Carling Cup penalty shootout defeat at Sheffield Wednesday and will revert back to something like the side that started in the 1-0 win at Hull in their opening league match. Winger Phillips has yet to feature for the Seasiders this season as he has been on England duty at the Under-20s World Cup in Colombia while Gilks injured his ankle against Hull. Mark Halstead, who made only his second start for Blackpool at Sheffield Wednesday, is on stand-by if Gilks fails to make it. Defenders Stephen Crainey and Craig Cathcart missed out on Thursday due to international commitments, but are expected to return to the starting line-up. Centre-half Ashley Eastham will not be in contention following his straight red card at Hillsborough for a professional foul. Grant McCann comes back into the Peterborough squad for the trip north. The midfielder missed the midweek Carling Cup victory over Stevenage as he was away on international duty. McCann played the full 90 minutes as Northern Ireland beat the Faroe Islands 4-0 in a Euro 2012 qualifier in Belfast on Wednesday night. Another addition to Darren Ferguson`s squad will be new signing Josh Thompson. Posh have the young defender on a season-long loan from Celtic and he has received international clearance to play at Bloomfield Road. Striker Nicky Ajose will remain on the sidelines. The former Manchester United trainee was forced out of the opening-day victory over Crystal Palace last weekend after just 27 minutes due to a hamstring injury.

Match Report

Phillips at the double for Seasiders Kevin Phillips scored his first goals for Blackpool as Ian Holloway's men maintained their winning start to the season with a 2-1 triumph over newly-promoted Peterborough. The Seasiders opened their campaign with a 1-0 win at Hull and summer signing Phillips, 38, set them on their way to a second successive victory with a clinical first-half header. The evergreen striker, who signed a one-year deal at Bloomfield Road following his release from Birmingham, struck again three minutes after the restart with another predatory effort. The visitors pulled a goal back through George Boyd in the 82nd minute but Blackpool hung on for victory. Holloway named the same starting line-up that won at Hull, but Peterborough arrived on the Lancashire coast in buoyant mood after beating Crystal Palace in their opening game. It was the hosts who began the brighter and they almost led inside the sixth minute following an outswinging corner by Elliot Grandin. The ball reached Phillips at the far post and the veteran frontman planted a close-range header goalwards. Posh goalkeeper Paul Jones made a fine stop to avert the danger and Grandin followed up to strike the ball against a post from distance. The Seasiders continued to build up a head of steam and in the ninth minute defender Alex Baptiste advanced forward before striking a left-footed shot wide from 12 yards. The visitors survived the early storm and steadied themselves before fashioning their first goalscoring opportunity in the 11th minute. Lee Frecklington hit a right-footed shot from 25 yards but his effort was diverted out for a corner by Blackpool midfielder Keith Southern. Grant McCann delivered the resulting corner from the right flank and Ryan Bennett's six-yard header was parried to safety by Blackpool goalkeeper Matt Gilks. Midway through the first half Blackpool went close when a cross from Gary Taylor-Fletcher was met by Phillips but his header was well parried by Jones. However, the hosts finally made the breakthrough in the 44th minute when Baptiste crossed from the right flank and Phillips headed into the top corner from 12 yards out. And he underlined his eye for goal again three minutes after the restart as another fine finish put Blackpool 2-0 up. Southern's fierce strike from 18 yards was only parried by Jones and Phillips followed up to sweep home the rebound from close range. David Ball then sought to get Peterborough back into the game but his shot from distance was well saved by Gilks. Blackpool almost grabbed a third in the 58th minute when Baptiste crossed to Brett Ormerod who could only fire wide from just six yards out. Posh boss Darren Ferguson then made three substitutions in quick succession in the final quarter of the game. The changes breathed new life into the visitors as Boyd struck with a right-foot shot from six yards with eight minutes remaining after a mistake from Cathcart - but Blackpool held on. end
