Blackpool skipper Barry Ferguson has been in charge of the first-team since Paul Ince was dismissed in January, after less than a year in the job.

The Tangerines are currently sitting 19th in the Championship, seven points from the relegation places.

And Blackpool's next three fixtures could be crucial as they play bottom place Yeovil and promotion chasing Derby at Bloomfield Road, before a trip to Leeds.

Blackpool have won two and drawn four of the 13 games since former Rangers and Scotland captain Ferguson took charge.
