Duo To Miss Last Five Games

9 April 2015

Lewis And Hall Ruled Out

Lee Clark confirmed on Thursday that Joe Lewis and Grant Hall's seasons are over after picking up ankle injuries.

The duo hobbled out of Blackpool's draw with Reading earlier in the week, and will now miss the remaining five matches.

Lewis has made 34 appearances in goal for The Seasiders this season, and Hall has played 12 times while on loan from Tottenham.

“Their seasons are over after picking up ankle injuries on Tuesday evening,” revealed Clark.

“We had them confirmed this morning. The squad is depleted even more now, so some more of the youngsters will be given an opportunity. 

“We've taken them until the end of the season and the lads want to do their rehabilitation here, as long as their clubs are happy with that.”

The news, along with Michael Jacobs being recalled, means Clark will be forced to shuffle his pack dramatically ahead of Saturday's trip to Ipswich Town.

“We were just starting to get a bit of consistency with the team selection, it looked like the lads were enjoying their game and the continuity.

“Obviously there has to be at least three changes to the starting line-up at Ipswich, which isn't ideal going to a team which is fighting for promotion,” he added.
