Midfielder Charlie Adam is convinced promoted Blackpool will be ready for the start of the Barclays Premier League season.The Lancashire side suffered a double blow as their already threadbare squad was further depleted by serious injuries to two players.Striker Billy Clarke learned he could miss the whole campaign after rupturing a cruciate ligament in a pre-season friendly while fellow forward Louis Almond was ruled out for three months with a dislocated shoulder.Their absences will increase the urgency for manager Ian Holloway to add to his squad ahead of the August 14 kick-off at Wigan.Holloway is yet to sign a player this summer and has lost four with loans for Seamus Coleman, DJ Campbell and Stephen Dobbie ending and Ben Burgess joining Notts County.But Scotland international Adam said: "Come August 14, that's when we'll be ready."That's when you know you are in the Premier League, when you walk out at 2.55 ready to win your first three points."
