Already missing their manager Paul Ince as he serves the third game of a five-match stadium ban, the Seasiders find themselves depleted on the playing side due to one suspension and five injuries.
Jack Robinson was dismissed against Blackburn last Saturday in a fiery affair which has since led to both teams being charged by the FA, and the Liverpool loanee will miss the next four games after picking up his second red card of the season.
Although on-loan Bradley Orr returns after being unavailable against his parent club Rovers, Chris Basham (ankle), Bob Harris (shoulder), Barry Ferguson (ankle), Isaiah Osbourne (ankle) and Craig Cathcart (knee) are all sidelined.
