Bowyer Plays Down Taylor Fears

9 February 2017

Scan Rules Out Collarbone Break

Gary Bowyer has allayed initial fears of a bone break for Andy Taylor, with the manager hopeful that he won't spend too long on the sidelines. 

The skipper left the field clutching his arm against Crawley Town on Tuesday night, having been fouled in added time. 

"He went for an X-ray yesterday and the good news is that it's not a broken collarbone as first feared," the manager confirmed. 

"We've got to let the injury settle down before we can examine it even further now, just to make sure that there's nothing else wrong."

Though Taylor is unlikely to be involved against Carlisle United on Saturday, one player who hopes to return for the game is Brad Potts.

The midfielder, who came through the academy ranks at Brunton Park, missed Blackpool's game in midweek but will be assessed in the coming days.  

"We think he'll train today and tomorrow and give it a good go. We're only going to put him in the team if we feel that he's able to compete for longer than 45 minutes like he did last week," Bowyer added.
