Carroll and Butt Start At Blackpool


Blackpool FC nufc-crest

Chris Hughton makes two changes to the side that beat Cardiff City 1-0 last Sunday.   ,

Club captain Nicky Butt comes in for the suspended Alan Smith in central midfield, and Andy Carroll replaces Nile Ranger in the up front attacking role.

Nile Ranger, after 3 starts on the trot, drops down to the bench, and the more experienced Carroll comes in, after recovering from a groin problem.

The subs bench is a mixture of experience and youth   —  Tim Krul, Tamas Kadar, Geremi, Ryan Donaldson, Kazenga LuaLua, Nile Ranger, Peter Lovenkrands

Newcastle are now 3rd top after WBA and Middlesbrough both won last night, and we need an outright win tonight to get back to 1st place in the league.

We need the win tonight!

Howay The Lads!!

TEAMS

Blackpool: Paul Rachubka, Neal Eardley, Alex Baptiste, Ian Evatt, Stephen Crainey, Charlie Adam, Keith Southern, Jason Euell, David Vaughan, Brett Ormerod, Hameur Bouazza
Subs: Matt Gilks, Billy Clarke, Joe Martin, Jay Emmanuel-Thomas, Al Bangura, Rob Edwards, Louis Almond

Subs: Tim Krul, Tamas Kadar, Geremi, Ryan Donaldson, Kazenga LuaLua, Nile Ranger, Peter Lovenkrands

    I said the other day that we should play Carroll if he was fit – not because he’s better than Ranger but because we have a lot of games to play, they come thick and fast and if Ranger plays when he’s shattered he could sustain an injury. He looked exhausted last week. Also, Carroll may not last he whole game.
    We need to protect our resources. If we had a squad we could rotate, we would – but we haven’t – except very occasionally, like now.

    Would liked to have seen us play two up front.

    This is why we desperately need new players.

    Congrats toon1978!

    Does anyone know what happened to Johnny Godsmark or something like that. He used to play in the reserves and bang them in but I remember hearing he might be off contract at some stage and I have not heard his name recently.
