Barry Ferguson: Blackpool captain is currently in charge of the first-team

Blackpool skipper Barry Ferguson has been in charge of the first team since Paul Ince was dismissed in January, after less than a year in the job.

Blackpool have won two and drawn four of the 13 games since former Rangers and Scotland captain Ferguson took charge.
