Larry carries on

Blackpool caretaker boss Simon Grayson has been told he has time to win himself the job on a full-time basis.

Veteran midfielder Grayson took control of the side after Colin Hendry was removed from his position last month.

He has now been in charge for four games, and the club say they are in no rush to change the setup.

Blackpool are in no rush to appoint a permanent manager and are happy to leave caretaker-boss Simon Grayson in charge.

A statement on the club's official website read 'Blackpool can confirm Simon Grayson will remain in charge of first-team matters for the foreseeable future.

'Grayson will be assisted by Tony Parkes and Andy Welsh. No timescale has been put on these appointments.'
