Blackpool are hoping that former Premier League star Jamie O'Hara will be fit for the north west clash against Wigan Athletic this weekend at Bloomfield Road.

O'Hara has been an ever present member of the Blackpool side since he arrived but they still find themselves rock bottom of the Championship. O'Hara has been an impressive member in the team, but has been unable to turn the outfit's fortunes around to move them up the table.

Unfortunate

The former Spurs man has reportedly been playing through the pain barrier since December after damaging a rib, and he damaged it once again. The injury is a result of a blow he suffered in the midweek game against Brentford, as Blackpool were handed yet another away loss.

The injury is believed to be not as bad as first thought however and manager Lee Clark is hopeful that O'Hara will be ready for Saturday's big relegation clash. Clark told the Blackpool Gazette: “He felt a really bad whack to his ribs. He heard a bit of a crack but hopefully it isn’t broken or anything.

“He’s been an inspiration, not only for the team but for the supporters. He’s been a real leader.

O'Hara's injury is just another headache to Clark, as he admitted before the Brentford match that he was unsure if he was going to fill the subs bench due to the problems his squad has.
