Barry Ferguson: Taken off on a stretcher against Peterborough

Ferguson was placed in a neck brace following a collision with team-mate Isaiah Osbourne and was taken straight to hospital after an eight-minute break in play.

Despite understandable initial concerns, Seasiders manager Paul Ince has now confirmed the injury is not as serious as first thought.

Ince told the Blackpool Gazette: "The scan came back okay. It's great news.

"It was a big concern when he went down for so long. You always think the worst."

Ince added: "These Jocks are soft, aren't they? I'd never have got on a stretcher!"
