STRIKER Sergei Kornilenko may have grabbed the headlines in Blackpool Reserves’ 3-0 win over Blackburn but another of the Seasiders’ overseas signings hopes to have given Ian Holloway a gentle reminder ahead of next week’s mouthwatering home clash with Tottenham.

Ludovic Sylvestre also impressed at Leigh on Monday, scoring the final goal, and would relish a recall against last night’s conquerors of AC Milan.

The French midfielder has mainly been an unused substitute since his last Premier League start at Manchester City on New Year’s Day.

“I’m ready and waiting for my chance in the first team,” said the 27-year-old. “It’s been a long time since I played, so I feel better.”

n Sheffield United are believed to have made an audacious inquiry about Blackpool striker Marlon Harewood.

The relegation-threatened Blades are the Championship’s second-lowest scorers and needed a late penalty to rescue a point at home to Reading last night.

Harewood, 31, has scored five goals in 16 Premier League appearances for Pool and started against Aston Villa last Saturday.
