This Saturday will see the return of Tangerine`s boss Paul Ince to the touchline after serving his five game stadium ban.
Paul Ince was first given the 5 game stadium ban after he reportedly violently shoved a fourth official after Blackpool`s victory against Bournemouth. The former England Captain was said to be furious after he was sent to the stands for inadvertently hitting a female steward in the foot with a bottle.
After the match, Ince confronted the official in an angry manner whilst clearly expressing his un-satisfaction with the decision.
However this Saturday sees the return of Ince to the touchline, and he has vowed to be more disciplined in the future. He told Sky Sports: ‘This is my teaching to keep my mouth shut, you have to learn from your mistakes and move on. I`m looking forward to being on the touchline against Sheffield Wednesday`.
Blackpool have performed admirably under the guidance of Alex Rae. The two wins against Wigan and Nottingham forest certainly were fantastic result, and Rae should take credit for losing only one of the five games he was in charge for. However, having Ince back managing the team on match days will certainly be a huge boost for the squad. Hopefully Pool can now push on and further cement their place as a promotion challenging team.
In other news, it now appears Jamie O`Hara will not be joining Blackpool after having a trial at the club. It seemed as though the former Spurs midfielder was set to join on loan until January, but it`s now apparent as though he will not be joining at all.
O`Hara certainly would have been a good edition to the squad, and with the possibility of our midfielders getting injured again it maybe would have been helpful to recruit another one to the squad. Hopefully losing out on this signing won`t mean too much.
