Tom Ince: Has been highlighted as a threat to Bolton

Wanderers will almost certainly secure a play-off spot if they manage to extend their winning run on home turf to nine matches, but Freedman expects Paul Ince's men to have the shackles off after ensuring their Championship status with a last-gasp win over Derby last time out.

"Preparations are well under way for this weekend's game and we will give the players ideas how to beat Blackpool," he told Bolton's official website.

"Blackpool's two wide players are the ones to be wary of. They also play with a carefree attitude and they are now safe.

"We will have to be careful because Blackpool will have an attitude where they have nothing to lose and we will make sure we put our blocks in and attack at the right time.

"The fans are gaining confidence in the team. They are coming together as one and hopefully there will be a great atmosphere this weekend at the Reebok Stadium."
