Blackpool vs Nottingham Forest takes place on Saturday at 3pm (UK time).
After a disastrous start to the season, Nottingham Forest have now found their footing. The club have lost just twice in their last 10 games, and picked up wins over Tottenham (EFL Cup) and Liverpool (Premier League) in that time, as well as a recent draw with Chelsea. Blackpool meanwhile are struggling in the Championship relegation zone and haven’t won in nine games. A result here would do Michael Appleton the world of good.

Blackpool team news
There is one player who has really captured the imagination at Bloomfield Road this season, and that is Arsenal loanee Charlie Patino. The 19-year-old has already made his Gunners debut (and scored) and is highly regarded in north London, with many believing he will be challenging for a first-team berth next season under Mikel Arteta.
Strong in the challenge, tidy in possession and slippery on the ball (he has won the fourth most fouls of any central midfielder in the Championship this season), Arteta has previously spoken about Patino’s hype and managing expectations carefully.
Following his debut goal against Sunderland in the EFL Cup last season, Arteta reflected at the time: “He is training with us almost every week. It was a dream. As a debut to come here, to score in front of our fans, a really special moment.
“I think that is very positive [that the fans were singing his name]. They heard about him and know what he can become and now we have to cook him slowly. Today was a good start, I think.
“[Too much hype around him] is what we have to avoid. He still has a lot of competition in front of him. He is really young. And he needs to go step by step. Today he was lucky, he got the opportunity and he took it really well.”

With such a bulging squad, Steve Cooper will no doubt be tempted to mix things up this weekend. As for whom he cannot select, Jesse Lingard, Moussa Niakhate, Giulian Biancone, Omar Richards and Cheikhou Kouyate all remain sidelined indefinitely, while midweek hero Taiwo Awoniyi is struggling with fatigue and will likely be kept on ice for the Premier League’s return next weekend.
