Evatt boost for Seasiders
Blackpool expect defender Ian Evatt to be fit for the npower Championship play-off semi-final second-leg at Birmingham.
Evatt suffered a broken nose in training 24 hours before the Seasiders' final regular-season game against Millwall, where he took part and netted a diving header in a 2-2 draw.
An accidental clash with Blues striker Marlon King left the centre-back with blood streaming from the injury in the closing stages of last Friday's 1-0 first-leg victory at Bloomfield Road.
Roman Bednar resumed training ahead of the game following a knee injury but failed to make the matchday 16 and the on-loan West Brom striker must press his claims once more.
Centre-back Craig Cathcart is unlikely to take part having recently undergone tests due to heart palpitations.
Last week's win was Blackpool's 10th consecutive triumph in play-off matches having won promotion to the third tier in 2001, the Championship in 2007 and the Barclays Premier League two seasons ago.
