Fans See Harris As Crainey's Understudy

Fans See Harris As Crainey's Understudy

In our latest poll we asked you whether you saw Matt Hill or Bob Harris as Stephen Crainey's understudy for the left back role, and 75% of you voted for Harris.

Harris joined the Seasiders this summer from Queen of the South in Scotland after a successful trial and has made one appearance for the 'Pool thus far; in the Carling Cup defeat against Sheffield Wednesday.

However, fans saw enough of him in that game to vote for him over the more experienced Hill (who appears to be being used as cover at centre half anyway).

Should Crainey find himself out of the team at any stage this season it'll certainly be interesting to see who Ian Holloway picks to replace him.

Our latest poll asks how you would deal with the Neal Eardley situation.
