Football - Seasiders to check on striker

Ricardo Fuller is likely to require a late fitness test before Blackpool host in-form Nottingham Forest.

PA Sport Report

Fuller has not appeared since January 11, the second-to-last game of Paul Ince's reign, but the striker is nearing a comeback from his hamstring problem.

Utility-man Neal Bishop has been absent for almost as long but, following a hamstring injury of his own, he is hopeful of taking part when Forest bid to extend their unbeaten run to 15 games in all competitions at Bloomfield Road.

Midfielder Elliot Grandin rejoined the club on Thursday and could play, but interim manager Barry Ferguson, who will not play himself while he has the managerial reins, insists it may take him another week to 10 days before he is fully up to speed.
