IPSWICH Town boss Roy Keane is predicting a “cracking game” when surprise play-off hopefuls Blackpool come to Portman Road tomorrow.

Speaking at this morning's press conference, Keane insisted: “I'm pleased for Ian Holloway (manager), because he's a good man and a good character. And there aren't many characters in the game anymore.

“Blackpool seems to suit him. I suppose it's the underdog role. He makes the most of it, but don't kid yourself - he has some very good players and they are a real goal threat.

“I think this will be a good game for us. It will be a tough, physical game,” added Keane.

The Irishman revealed that Lee Martin will again miss out because of a heel injury, but that both Pablo Counago and Alan Quinn might return to the squad.
