The EFL action keeps on coming at the moment with an array of midweek games for us to try and get our heads around.

In Sky Bet League One, Sunderland are back in action as they embark on a busy run of matches against a Blackpool side who have remained tight at the back all campaign.

Indeed, the Tangerines have got play-off hopes this season and so this could well be a tough game for both at the Stadium of Light later tonight.

Ahead of the match, then, some early team news has emerged – courtesy of Sky Sports.

Up front, Will Grigg is expected to remain in the side for Sunderland whilst both Kazaiah Sterling and Chris Maguire could also both play a part.

For the Pool, Antony Evans and Matty Virtue are contending to start after doing well from the bench against Walsall but Jay Spearing is set to miss out thanks to injury.

The Verdict

This could be a pretty entertaining clash.

Sunderland have the chance to go second if they win all their games in hand whilst Blackpool have genuine top-six hopes this season.

Expect a closely-fought game on Wearside tonight, then, as the pair look to boost their aims.
