Terry McPhillips plays down rumours linking Blackpool with Yeovil Town winger

The Seasiders currently sit eighth in the table, three points off Charlton who currently occupy that final play-off spot.

While a win against the Addicks at Bloomfield Road on Saturday is unlikely to take Pool into the top six due to their goal difference, it could go a long way to cementing their play-off credentials.

Speaking ahead of the match, McPhillips has revealed Ollie Turton and Callum Guy are back in training, while Mark Cullen is also thought to be closing in on a return.

The Pool boss said: “We’ve had a full week so we had 20 outfield players training, so it was a good chance to do a 11v11 and get some work done.

“It hasn’t happened often for us (having a week off) and the weather has been kind so far. So we’re looking healthy.

“Callum and Turts have trained and they look good, Cully is there or thereabouts as well.”
