Blackpool v Gillingham
Sky Bet League One
Monday April 5
Steve Evans has said that Robbie Cundy is getting close to a return. The defender has been training on grass since the Wigan game and will require a late fitness test to determine if he is fit enough to play a part.
Dominic Samuel could start the game as he continues to build his match fitness.
Blackpool's Sullay Kaikai was substituted late in the win against Swindon having picked up a knock. He will be assessed up until the last moment.
Marvin Ekpiteta and Gary Madine will both remain out as they continue to recover from their injuries. James Husband, Kevin Stewart, Matty Virtue, Keshi Anderson and CJ Hamilton will also miss the game.
Steve Evans - “They’ve got pace and power all over their team. They can play a number of systems and they do it at different times.
“They’re very good at working the ball through the lines, and they take chances when they come because they have the quality to do so.
“It will be a tough afternoon, but one we’ll look forward to.”
Kyle Dempsey - “You’ve got to respect this side. They’ve been in great form and they’ve had some great results against some good sides.
“We’ve played some really good sides over these last few weeks. It’s about going there doing as we’ve done, not changing anything and look to go there and get the three points, which will be massive for us.”
Neil Critchley- “It will be a really tough game on Monday. Gillingham are in really good form and since Christmas they’ve picked up a lot of points. We’re in good form ourselves and have good home form."
