The big centre-back was involved in a clash of heads during the 1-1 draw at Nottingham Forest and was forced off after complaining of double vision.

However, he has been monitored since and was given the green light to return, much to the delight of Ince.

"Gary felt like he was knocked out. He said he woke up on the pitch and felt like he was in some sort of bubble," Ince told the Blackpool Gazette. "He said he didn't know what was going on.

"He's been massive for us, so it was a shame to lose him on Saturday, but Craig Cathcart came in and did very well."

Ince awarded his players a day off for their efforts against Forest and was quick to praise their attitude as they returned to training ahead of a home double header.

He added: "The lads are immense. What they keep giving me and have in such a short space of time is a credit to them.

"The attitude, their resilience and their never-say-die attitude is brilliant. I'm proud of them."

nd we always will love Ozil. I don't really mind if no other team can see just how brilliant he is, or if people think he is rubbish, because we know he is far from it. He is a fantastic player, and if people cannot see that it can only be a good thing, in that he will be at Arsenal for years to come, pulling the strings from behind a glass veil.

like the list and Ozil in particular does seem under appreciated when you look at his stats (an odd thing considering his fee or maybe because of it). Palace have a few and I've always thought Dwight Gayle at Palace was under rated, certainly when you look at his goals per game ratio. You can probably also add Ryan Bertrand at Saints who should be in the England team in my view.

ew Shaun Wright Phillips, there I've said it. If any club offers stupid money we'd be stupid to say no, he's not a potential worldie by any stretch and I feel that after a few years warming the bench at city or Chelsea he'll be back at QPR smoking sheesha pipes under Harry Redknapp.
