CHAIR­MAN Karl Oys­ton has been painted as a vil­lain at Bloom­field Road but Neil McDon­ald be­lieves he can be Black­pool’s saviour be­fore the end of the trans­fer win­dow.

Oys­ton com­pleted a sixweek ban from all football ac­tiv­ity for breaches of FA con­duct rules last week fol­low­ing an abu­sive text ex­change with a fan.

It came amid a dis­as­trous cam­paign last sea­son in which Black­pool dropped down to League One, with Oys­ton draw­ing much of the sup­port­ers’ ire.

“We have three or four plates spin­ning. It does take time to re­cruit play­ers,” said McDon­ald, who saw his side pick up just one point in their open­ing three matches.

“In just over two months we’ve got 11 play­ers through the door and I think we’ve done well with that.

“Hope­fully the chair­man com­ing back can help us get more over the line and I think he can make a big dif­fer­ence for us.We have lots of prob­lems off the pitch and it’s been dif­fi­cult.

“It’s been dif­fi­cult try­ing to bring play­ers in with­out the chair­man be­ing around.

“There’s no point moan­ing, though, and hope­fully we can move for­wards now.”
