'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Evo Hopes To Face Hoops

After missing last weekend's draw against Cardiff through suspension, Ian Evatt is available for selection again tomorrow and is hoping to return to the side to face his old club Queens Park Rangers.

The defender told the official club website:

'I feel like I was playing well before I got suspended, and hopefully the gaffer will bear that in mind - but that's one of the setbacks of getting suspended.'

Evatt faces competition from Rob Edwards, also returning from suspension, and on loan Andy Butler, who started last weekend, and, according to some, would be unlucky to lose his place.

Speaking about Butler and his competition for a place in the starting eleven, Evatt said:

'I heard he did ok on Saturday, so the gaffer's got decisions to make for this weekend, we all want to play but he can't play everyone.'

Asked about his ex club (presumably before Paul Hart's shock departure!), Evatt said:

'They are doing really well; to be honest they are one of the bests teams we have played this season.

'We have got to make sure that we are at it because they came here and beat us 3-0 last season. So we owe them one from last year.'

Meanwhile, midfielder Keith Southern has echoed everyone else's thoughts by stating that the next few weeks could define the Seasiders' season.

Gnashers said:

'We play seven of our next ten games at home and maybe that will define our season, I'm not sure. Only half the season has gone - it feels like a lot more - and there a lot of twists and turns still to come.'
