Terry McPhillips has provided an update on Blackpool pair Jimmy Ryan and Max Clayton, who continue to make good progress in their recovery from injury.
Neither player has featured yet this season, with skipper Jimmy Ryan blighted by a knee problem that required surgery.
“Jimmy has been in again today and he’s running again now. He’s ahead of schedule and he’s doing well.
“We’re still thinking it will be January when he’s back. Once he joins back in and starts doing the ball work again then we’ll know how close he is,” McPhillips confirmed.
Max Clayton, meanwhile, has been away on a PFA funded rehabilitation programme at The FA’s National Football Centre, which is offered to those recovering from medium to long-term injury. The 24-year-old has been absent from the first-team picture following an operation on his hamstring.
“Max has had a couple of weeks at St George’s Park and that’s speeding up his recovery,” the manager added.
