Holloway plans detailed defence on team changes
Friday 19 November 2010
Blackpool manager Ian Holloway yesterday challenged the Premier League to prove the side he fielded at Aston Villa last week was understrength.
The League has written to the Seasiders, asking them to explain their selection after Holloway made 10 changes for the game 10 days ago, which his side lost 3-2, and then changed the entire starting line-up for Saturday's draw at West Ham.
The club will have seven days to respond and Holloway is planning a robust argument as he selected only from the 25-man squad he named earlier this season. "I can explain every decision I made and I can show them the facts," Holloway said.
