Blackpool have received mixed injury news ahead of tomorrow’s clash at Watford.

Lee Clark has been handed a major boost with the news Ishmael Miller is now fully fit to return to the side, but rocked by injury to Grant Hall.

The defender has impressed in his two appearances since joining on loan from Spurs but is now expected to miss up to a month after tearing ankle ligaments in training yesterday.

Boss Clark explained: “We’ve lost Grant Hall which is a real blow.

“He’s going to be out for three or four weeks which is a blow as I thought he was outstanding at Wolves.

“He’s started his Blackpool career very well.

“There was no-one near him, a bit of turf moved from under his ankle and he tore a few ligaments in it.

“It’s a real blow for us.”

Striker Miller has missed Pool’s last two games since straining a hamstring against Aston Villa at the start of the month.

But after ten days of rest the 27-year-old has trained all week and was part of the squad which headed South this morning.

“Ishmael is back in contention which will be a big boost for us,” revealed Clark.

“He has had a slight issue with his hamstring and we didn’t want to take any risks with him.”
