Football - Ince absent for Latics visit

Blackpool have no new injury worries but they will be without their manager Paul Ince when they host Wigan in Saturday's lunchtime kick-off.

PA Sport Report

The Seasiders boss begins a five-game stadium ban for pushing a fourth official and using a series of expletives in a rant after he was sent to the stands during a 2-1 win over Bournemouth.

Although Ince intends to watch the game live on Sky, he will not be allowed inside Bloomfield Road on the day of the match meaning Alex Rae and former manager Steve Thompson will take charge of the half-time team-talk.

They will be without midfielder Barry Ferguson (ankle) for the next month and Bob Harris (shoulder) is also recovering from surgery so loanee Dan Gosling could make his full debut.
