Jackson joins Seasiders

Jackson joins Seasiders

Experienced defender Matt Jackson yesterday (Saturday), completed a loan-move to Championship rivals Blackpool.

The 35 year-old defender has made just two appearances for the club since his Summer move - both coming in Carling Cup ties.

The former Wigan Athletic captain has found first-team chances hard to come by with Jay DeMerit and Dan Shittu continuing their excellent partnership from last season.

Blackpool held Watford at Vicarage Road last weekend but Simon Grayson swooped to add some experience to his young defence.

With Jackson and Avinel out on-loan, Watford have just three recognised centre backs on their books in DeMerit, Shittu and Mariappa.

Mr Bodell says:
'Jackson has looked and sounded suspect in the games in which he has feautured this year. I have not beeen impressed. Other than the fact we now have 3 senior centre halves, I'm not bothered by his temporary exit.'
