Blackpool boss Holloway urged to stay cool on deadline day

Blackpool boss Ian Holloway has been told to keep his cool during today's transfer deadline day.

Holloway is chasing up to four new signings in the final hours of the market.

He said: "I honestly don't know if I'll be able to get the players I need here in time.

"I need seven or eight marching in here and I just can't see it myself. But listen, I'll keep working to try and make it happen.

"The chairman has told me to keep my nerve. But I can't hold my nerve much longer because there isn't much longer left. Hopefully he will be proved right.

"But it's been frustrating so far. I thought we had three on Friday but unfortunately they all wriggled out of the bag.

"If the worst comes to the worst and we don't do the business we want, I'll just have to be careful and hopefully we won't get some shocking injuries."
