LANCASTER City skipper Neil Marshall has described his current trial with Blackpool as a “win win” situation.

Marshall is spending a week with Ian Holloway’s Tangerines and played in a Blackpool reserve side that lost 3-1 against Middlesborough on Tuesday.

Speaking about the game, the 26-year-old central defender said: “It was alright, I enjoyed it.

“They scored three goals in ten minutes but apart from that I thought we should have won.

“Obviously you can tell you’re playing against better players but I didn’t feel out of place.”

Marshall, who is training with Blackpool today, Thursday, and Friday, said he had been given no indication of whether he would be offered a deal with the Championship side.

The Dolly Blues skipper, who lifted the President’s Cup in May, said: “Nobody’s said anything to me. I’m still going in for training Thursday and Friday and we’ll see what happens.

“It’s a win win situation for me. If it doesn’t happen for me at Blackpool I’ll go back to Lancaster.

“But this trial is a good experience and one I’ll never forget.”
