Ian Holloway has a major boost ahead of tonight’s trip to Hull City after he named Gary Taylor-Fletcher in the travelling squad.

The striker missed the dismal 3-0 defeat at Cardiff on Saturday as the Seasiders lacked any sort of attacking endeavour.

GTF might be fit enough to play some part. ‘I’ve named Fletch in my squad. He trained yesterday morning and we’ll see today if there’s been any reaction to the session,’ Holloway said. ‘It’s hard to tell if he`ll be fit, though.

‘Fletch is a big part of our football club. He’s been here a long time. He knows how it works and he appreciates it. He knows the way I want to play and can play in four of five positions.

‘He’s totally and utterly reliable and there’s no doubt he was missed on Saturday. Fletch wanted to give it a go in training yesterday and felt fit enough to travel with us today.’

Tom Ince is still out through injury but Holloway chose to blast rumours that he is to sign for Manchester United in January, while the manager is expected to make a host of changes for the match at the KC Stadium.
