Burton boss Nigel Clough will change his starting line-up for the first time in three matches when they return to the Pirelli Stadium against Blackpool.

After winning 2-1 at Coventry, Clough picked the same players for another away trip to Charlton in midweek.

After that game, which ended in a 2-1 defeat, Clough said he felt Marcus Harness’ extended run in the team was showing signs of catching up with him and the winger will be rested on Saturday.

Leading scorer Liam Boyce has been on the bench for the last two matches and he will be hoping for a recall.

Left-back Marc Bola is set to return to the Blackpool squad.

The 21-year-old has missed the last six games due to a hamstring injury but he is set to make a timely comeback, with defenders Ollie Turton, Donervon Daniels and Curtis Tilt all likely to be unavailable.

Tilt and Daniels are new injury concerns after having to be substituted during the 1-1 draw with Doncaster.

Midfielder Jimmy Ryan and forward Max Clayton are still sidelined for Blackpool, who will hope to reignite their play-off challenge after just one win in the last seven games.
