Three Blackpool players have been dropped from the squad to face Sheffield Wednesday after being spotted dancing in a local nightclub.Boss Ian Holloway took action after Barry Bannan, Ishmel Demontagnac and Neil Eardley were seen out just hours after Saturday's 2-1 loss to Leicester. [LNB]"I'm disappointed - we'll have a party once we've got 52 points," Holloway told BBC Radio Lancashire. [LNB]"If they think that's appropriate, then they're messing with the wrong man." [LNB]The trio will avoid a fine because they have not broken the terms of their contracts but Holloway will ask them to explain their behaviour. [LNB]"They're not in breach of contract - they've broken my rules and I think our fans need to know," he said.[LNB] How can you be injured and be dancing? Blackpool boss Ian Holloway Holloway revealed Eardley has been nursing a knee problem while Bannan, who is on-loan from Aston Villa, has a foot injury. [LNB]The pair were due to undergo treatment on Sunday. [LNB]"Bannan's probably broken his toe but it was apparently good enough to go out dancing on a Saturday night," said Holloway. [LNB]"How can you be injured and be dancing? [LNB]"I like a dance with anybody but it's got to be the right time and when you're in a good mood. [LNB]"I'm not in a good mood when I lose and neither should they be."
