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."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
