Team news

Owls: Paul Corry is rated as 50-50 for tonight's clash with Blackpool.

The midfielder picked up an ankle injury last time out against Peterborough and will be assessed ahead of the game.

Elsewhere, Owls boss Dave Jones has no further injury or suspension concerns.

Blackpool: Managerless Blackpool will be without Ian Evatt who is suspended for their trip to Hillsborough.

Evatt picked up his fifth booking of the season during Saturday's 4-1 defeat at Derby and will serve his one-match ban.

Defender Craig Cathcart (calf) could make his return from injury in the heart of the defence, while veteran striker Kevin Phillips (calf) remains sidelined despite initial hopes he would be ready for action against the Rams last weekend.

View from the dugout

Dave Jones: "We have to be up tempo from the start of every game; we have to keep the momentum going. There’s been a good atmosphere around the place for a long time, and I think that’s because the players felt and knew that something was starting to happen."

Steve Thompson: "I told the lads that we've got to move on, we need big characters out there now so we can't feel sorry for ourselves. It's not been an ideal week but I'll make no excuses. I'll back those lads 110 per cent because we've got a fantastic bunch."
