Town go into Sunday’s game looking for their second win of the season following the reversal at Bristol City on Wednesday night.
Blackpool arrive in Huddersfield following a 1-0 home defeat to Blackburn Rovers on the same evening.
Blackpool finished the 2021/22 season occupying the 16th spot of the Sky Bet Championship table on 60 points.
Led by Head Coach Michael Appleton, this is the Seasiders’ second consecutive season in the Championship following their promotion from Sky Bet League One at the end of the 2020/21 campaign.
Having lost to Blackburn Rovers during the week, Blackpool will be looking to bounce back into form since they were unbeaten in three league games and currently sit 15th in the table.
ONES TO WATCH
Connolly joined the Seasiders in June 2021 from Everton after rising through the academy ranks at Goodison Park. Prior to his move to Bloomfield Road, the defender had been sent on eight loan spells from Everton to Barnsley, two loan spells with Wigan Athletic, Ipswich Town, Bolton Wanderers, Lincoln City, and then spent 18 months on loan with Fleetwood Town. The 24-year-old has also represented England at various youth levels. This season for Blackpool, Connolly has appeared in all eight games and has scored one goal.
A new signing for Blackpool this summer, Theo Corbeanu joined the Championship side on a season-long loan from Wolverhampton Wanderers. The Premier League side sent the 20-year-old back on loan after he had two successful loan spells last season with Sheffield Wednesday and MK Dons, helping the Dons reach the Play-Off semi-finals. The Canadian international has started his season with Blackpool by scoring two goals in eight appearances as he aims to prove himself.
Now 24, goalkeeper Grimshaw joined Blackpool from Premier League giants Manchester City in 2021 and has established himself as the first choice custodian at Bloomfield Road this season, starting all seven Sky Bet Championship fixtures. It was the latest boost for the shot-stopper, who signed a new three-year contract extension with the Club during the summer.
