Holloway 'fed up' ahead of Forest clash

Talk of a move across Lancashire has come at a time when the Seasiders' excellent early season form has slowed, a situation they will look to arrest when entertaining Nottingham Forest on Tuesday night.

"I don't want to talk about any speculation. I am fed up of it," said Holloway after the weekend defeat at Burnley.

"I haven't quartered any of it and I don't need it in my life and neither does anyone else.

"I don't know whether it affected the malaise of my lads at the start of the game but I am sick of it but that's life."

The two sides meet for the 40th time in Blackpool with the Reds looking for their 11th win by the seaside.
