Holloway: Southern is Mr Blackpool

Blackpool boss Ian Holloway is happy to have Keith Southern available.

The 29-year-old, who has been at Bloomfield Road since moving from Everton in 2002, has been a key player throughout, with Ollie quick to recognise what he brings to the side.

"I just think that boy sums up this football club," he told the club's website. "For me, he's one of the Mr Blackpools and I think we've even missed him as a person. We've missed his shouts that he says every week just before we go out, and in some of these games it has been evident that we haven't had his type of player.

"I'd like that type of player in my team for the rest of my life, because what you see is what you get. He never changes, he always trains the same way and he's a different class bloke. I think the improvement he's made with the ball at his feet is quite phenomenal."
