Phillips suffers toe injury

15 November 2012

Blackpool could be without Matt Phillips until Christmas after the winger suffered an injury to his big toe.

Scotland international Phillips has torn a muscle in his toe joint.

Following a hamstring tear that rules Gary Taylor-Fletcher out for three to four weeks, new Seasiders boss Michael Appleton has problems in attack ahead of Saturday's trip to Bristol City.

He told the Blackpool Gazette: "Matt Phillips has got a slight tear to a joint in his big toe.

"That's been a problem for a couple of weeks and that is a big big disappointment for us.

"He's got a lot of quality and is one of the players who is so important to us."
