Folan: Record signing

Monday's Championship clash between Blackpool and Hull City at Bloomfield Road could see three players make their debuts.

New Seasiders signing Andy Welsh looks likely to feature, the winger signed on a one-year deal from from Major League Soccer club Toronto.

Blackpool's Gary Taylor-Fletcher (calf) and Ben Burgess (hamstring) face late fitness tests, but defender Danny Coid is struggling with a chest infection.

Hull have record £1million signing Caleb Folan available, while former Bolton Wanderers striker Henrik Pedersen has shrugged off an Achilles injury.

But Tigers boss Phil Brown is without centre-back Sam Ricketts and striker Nick Barmby for the trip to the West coast.

Both teams are currently on four points after three games and a victory for either side by two goals or more will see them enter the play-off places.

The players will have to be wary of any rash challenges as the referee for the game, Kevin Friend, has dished out 12 yellow cards and three red cards already this campaign.
