Husband's big chance to shine

STEPHEN Husband will have his first opportunity to shine in a Blackpool shirt when the reserves take on Morecambe at Bloomfield Road today.

The Scottish midfielder was signed from Hearts on deadline day.

But aside from a brief substitute's appearance at Sheffield Wednesday, he has not yet been given a real chance.

Husband is only 19, though, and has been earmarked as one for the future. Today he'll have a chance to show Holloway what he can do.

Husband will be one of several senior players on show in a strong reserve side which will also include Stephen Dobbie, Neal Eardley and Jason Euell.

The game kicks off at 2pm and will also see a return for Stephen McPhee.
