Blackpool are sweating over the fitness of defender Alex Baptiste after he picked up an injury on their training trip to Latvia.

The right-back was forced to return to England after suffering a hand injury in a training ground accident.

Baptiste is set to undergo scans on the injury amid fears he may have broken his hand.

Pool boss Ian Holloway is waiting to find out the full extent of the problem, but is fearing the worst.

"We think Alex may have fractured his hand which would be a big blow, but we will find out more over the weekend," Holloway told the Blackpool Gazette.
