The Seasiders reached the fourth round of the Carabao Cup earlier this season and earned a money-spinning tie with Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

They have already pocketed £36,000 from their FA Cup first round win against Exeter City and, should they beat Solihull Moors tonight, will earn a further £54,000.

They will also be paid £75,000 for the game being televised live on BBC Two.

When asked if that money will be made available to him during the January transfer window, which opens in a month’s time, McPhillips told The Gazette: “That would be nice, that’s for sure. But I don’t know yet what the score is with that.

“We’ll just wait and see but I’ll be pushing that in the next few weeks.”
