Back-to-back defeats against Accrington and Dagenham have checked the Cod Army's impressive march into the League Two play-off spots in their maiden Football League campaign.

Summer signings Jon Parkin and Steven Gillespie are sidelined, along with fellow forward and long-term absentee Andy Mangan, who has a knee injury.

Goalkeeper Davies feels the return of any of the frontmen would be like having new signings - particularly after Mellon failed to bring in striking reinforcements before last week's emergency loan deadline.

"We've got to start scoring goals and start scoring goals quickly," he told the Blackpool Gazette. "It was disappointing not to see anyone come in before the trip to Dagenham.

"We have three great strikers at the club who are injured and to get one of those back for the next league game would be like a new signing for us."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
