Midfielder passes his latest test
Neal Bishop stepped up his comeback from injury yesterday, as he featured in a Blackpool XI that drew with Rochdale.
The midfielder has been out of action since mid-January with a hamstring injury he picked up at Barnsley, and is yet to feature under Barry Ferguson.
However, Bishop made it through the full 90 minutes of the 3-3 draw at Squires Gate and may well be in contention for the trip to Ipswich this weekend.
Ferguson also used the game to give a number of players game time including Nathan Tyson, Michael Chopra and Nathan Eccleston, along with a number of youth team players.
Tyson scored twice for The Seasiders, who’d been given the lead through Chopra’s strike.
