Michael Appleton replaced Ian Holloway in the Bloomfield Road hotseat on Wednesday night after Holloway moved to fill the vacancy left at Crystal Palace by Freedman's switch to Bolton a fortnight ago.

Blackpool have struggled in recent weeks and Tuesday's 2-0 victory over Sheffield Wednesday was their first in six matches, but Freedman is not expecting too much of a change from the swashbuckling style they displayed under their former manager.

"I think that Blackpool can't change a lot in the space of two days so we don't expect a lot to be done change-wise in the team," said Freedman.

"They're very inconsistent, that's what's let them down. I think on their day they're very capable of beating anybody. The two boys up front for me are outstanding - (Matt) Phillips and (Tom) Ince are as good as you can get in this division.

"We've got to make sure that we are 100 per cent focused on the job. I believe if we prepare properly and go into the game with the right attitude it's a winnable game for us."

wonder if he'd feel the same way if he wasn't a white, non-jewish heterosexual male. Because Mackay has basically insulted everyone else!
