Paul Ince: Delighted to have Gary MacKenzie available

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."

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
