‍The fixtures are coming thick and fast for Blackpool as they head to Gillingham on Tuesday night for the re-arranged fixture. After the convincing home defeat to Bristol Rovers, Terry McPhillips said the players are suffering after a busy schedule of games so a long midweek journey to Gillingham is probably not going to help matters.

Gillingham started well but then drifted towards relegation. However, they have picked up of late recording two wins on the bounce and most notably a 3-0 win against Fleetwood on Saturday. Blackpool have lost three successive matches, albeit one of those away at Arsenal, so if you were a betting man, you would say Gillingham have the edge going into this match all things considered. This will be a massive test for McPhillips and the players. In this league, it's all about how quickly teams can recover from a couple of defeats. Bowyer did this well last season which is why we were never in serious danger so McPhillips will want the same.

Gillingham will check on defender Alex Lacey ahead of the Sky Bet League One match against Blackpool.

Lacey twisted his knee during the warm-up ahead of the win over Fleetwood on Saturday, so continues to be assessed.

Defender Bradley Garmston and midfielder Josh Rees and were both not fit at the weekend with unspecified knocks, but were expected to be back in training ahead of Tuesday night's clash.

Midfielder Callum Reilly (groin) continues his recovery from a groin problem.

Blackpool could have goalkeeper Mark Howard available again for the trip to Kent. Howard was absent for the first league game this season with a thigh problem as Christoffer Mafoumbi deputised between the posts in the home loss against Bristol Rovers.

Defender Daniels Donervon is closing in on a return from a hamstring problem, so could also be involved again.

Striker Armand Gnanduillet and defender Paudie O'Connor continue to serve out their respective three-match suspensions.
