Nathan Tyson has joined Fleetwood Town on a one month loan deal with one instruction: ‘Prove you’re ready for Blackpool’s team.’

The 31-year-old has found chances at Bloomfield Road few and far between after arriving from Derby on the last day of the summer transfer window.

He’s made six substitute appearances so far but is yet to find the net for the Seasiders and is expected to go straight into the side for Town’s game against Mansfield on Saturday.

“Tyson has gone on loan to Fleetwood for a month, he needs games,” Ince revealed.

“There aren’t enough games for him at this club and he needs games.

“It’s hard when players are training all week and not playing games.

“Graham phoned me on Wednesday and they need a striker so it will be good for him.

“If he goes there and scores some goals then he’ll come back a totally different player.

“It’s important for him, if he can do it at Fleetwood, then he’ll be ready to come and do it for me.

“It’s not just about games, he’s putting himself out there.

“If he comes back and says he’s scored three in three then I’ll have to take notice.”

With no reserve team at Blackpool getting game time for their out-of-favour players have proved tough.

And Ince hopes Tyson’s short-term switch to Highbury will give him the boost he needs.

He explained: “I wouldn’t say he needs confidence as he’s been fine.

“If he can go and play some games and score some goals it will do him so good.

“We are letting him go and join a team who are up there pushing for promotion, he’s not going to a team where he’s going to have to fight.

“He’ll enjoy that.

“It’s just up the road so we’ll be able to monitor him.”
