Despite being the head coach of Bolton Academy, Jimmy Phillips is not going to be easily dishing out senior team debuts to the players.

Phillips presently has the additional charge of Bolton’s senior team too after Neil Lennon left the post.

And, many believe as he has helped many youngsters grow through the Academy, he would take this opportunity to give them a bit of exposure at the bigger level.

However, according to Phillips, he might look to try out a few, but, only those whom he would be pretty sure about that this is the right moment to promote them.

Blackpool have finally started climbing up the table after their third consecutive clean sheet at home against Gillingham.

This clean sheet helped the home team get a 1-0 win, which is of great importance especially since it came against a team chasing promotion. Gillingham are second in the table, but they have been looking frail of late. Just two wins in the last four matches meant that Blackpool were in with a chance to get something out of the match. After having stayed unbeaten in the last four matches, Neil McDonald was confident of the same.

The club has had six managers in just two and a half years and this is a perfect example of the gross mismanagement. However, McDonald is confident that he will be able to put together a promotion challenge with the right group of players.
