Championship - Ince promises action against trio

Paul Ince will be taking disciplinary action against the three Blackpool players sent off in the closing stages of the 1-0 defeat to Yeovil.

With the visitors trailing to John Lundstram's first Football League goal, their frustration boiled over in dramatic fashion with Kirk Broadfoot and Gary MacKenzie picking up second yellow cards either side of Ricardo Fuller's red for an attempted headbutt on Luke Ayling.

"They've let everyone down," Ince said. "They've let the fans down and the club down.

"Our main two centre-halves, our stalwarts, are now out for Derby and Ricky (Fuller) did something stupid.

"They are experienced players and they've cost me here and for the next couple of games.

"They've got to understand the problems it caused given how well we've done this season and with the games we've got coming up.

"We should know better and they'll be dealt with. I will take further action with them for sure. I think they need to be (dealt with). I took action against myself when I got banned."

Ince, on the touchline for just the second time since returning from that five-game stadium ban, had no arguments about the two of the reds dished out by Chris Sarginson between the 88th minute and the final whistle but felt the final sending-off, for MacKenzie's foul on Ishmael Miller, was the wrong decision.

"To be fair Broady (Broadfoot) had to go, that was reckless, and you know you are on a yellow card. The last thing you want is your centre-half sent off, he has just got to stand up. The referee got that one spot on to be fair.

"With Gary MacKenzie he's gone to ground and its no more than that. I don't think that was a sending-off.

"Ricky (Fuller) should know better. He puts his head to him. I think the lad (Ayling) went down as if he'd been shot which is poor. You just want a bit of honesty - he saw a chance to get one of my players sent off and he took it."

Ince's men did create a number of clear-cut openings, with the manager's son Tom firing wide when clean through in the first half before the likes of Fuller, Stephen Dobbie and Michael Chopra all failed to hit the target when well placed.

"We can't moan about the chances that we've had, we've had some clear-cut chances," Ince added.

"Probably more than we've had since I've been here but if they don't score and don't hit the target then they aren't going to score goals.

"It has been, all in all, a crap night. It is a crap journey down. The Football League gave us a crap game on a Tuesday night at Yeovil which was crap."
