Heart in the mouth for Dicko
Blackpool manager Ian Holloway revealed on-loan Wigan forward Nouha Dicko was given the all-clear from a heart scare.
The 19-year-old came off the bench to draw a fine save from Leeds United goalkeeper Andy Lonergan on Tuesday and then had a hand in Angel Martinez's 80th-minute winner. Dicko was absent from Saturday's goalless draw with Nottingham Forest, after a routine health check back at his parent club showed him to have an irregular heartbeat, before further tests were carried out and the condition was treated. "They found something in a heart check at Wigan and we lost him for a week because of that, but luckily he is okay and it was exciting to see him play," Holloway told the Blackpool Gazette. "I picked the team deliberately because I wanted to use Nouha's legs and his pace towards the end and it really worked. "He is so exciting when he gets going. We have to realise that and use it more. Matt Gilks (Blackpool's goalkeeper) could have looked long the minute he caught the ball because Nouha will get on the end of those. We have to learn that and we will."
