Blackpool defender Andy Taylor could miss Crewe clash

Blackpool defender Andy Taylor remains a doubt for the visit of Crewe.

The left-back has a collarbone injury which has forced him to miss the last two matches.

Midfielder Neil Danns is unlikely to feature having missed the midweek defeat at Portsmouth with a hamstring injury.

Boss Gary Bowyer will continue to carefully manage the game time of midfielder Brad Potts and striker Kyle Vassell following lengthy spells out.

Crewe captain Danny Hollands is an injury doubt and may miss out.

Hollands had to be withdrawn just 20 minutes into the midweek win against Wycombe after stretching a hamstring in a tackle with Adebayo Akinfenwa.

Fellow midfielder Billy Bingham has recently made a successful return to training following injury, but it seems the trip to Bloomfield Road will come too soon for him to be involved and he may be back in the squad for the home game against Stevenage.

The likes of Zoumana Bakayogo, Alex Kiwomya, Perry Ng and Ryan Wintle - who replaced Hollands on Tuesday night and did well - are options for Alex boss Dave Artell as he seeks a third straight win.
