Joseph admits he’s had a few hurdles to overcome since joining Blackpool from Swansea City, but believes he’s now ready to have an impact.

“Coming in injured and trying to get used to new surroundings is always difficult,” he said.

“You’ve just got to take one thing at a time. It could’ve all got on top of me, but it was just about going in and getting to know the lads- remaining focussed on getting back playing.

“There’s still plenty of fixtures left and I want to contribute in as many as possible.

“There’s going to be a bit of pressure where I’ve got to prove myself, but I’m confident in my ability and my body.

“I bring high energy, running and pressing. I want to get goals and assists.
