The defender joined Sunderland over the weekend and will be keen to get stuck in, however could be lacking match sharpness due to his lack of appearances for Leeds United in pre-season.
On Huggins’ involvement tonight, Johnson said: "It's an option [to put him in the squad for Blackpool] but he hasn't had a competitive game yet and so that has to be a consideration for us.”
"He's done a lot of fitness work, he was one of five or six Leeds players who had been told their future may lie elsewhere and therefore they trained as a separate group.
"So I'll have to assess him.”
