DEAN Lyness made his move to Blackpool last week after their No.1 Colin Doyle suffered an injury which will keep him out until the start of 2016.

The Albion goalkeeper broke his leg just over a year ago in Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink's first training session in charge, keeping him out until the start of this pre-season where he made an appearance at Gresley FC for the Albion.

With Jon McLaughlin in fine form and being backed up by Norwich loanee Remi Matthews, who has played well every time he has pulled on a Brewers shirt, Lyness has struggled to get into the fold so far. 

A loan move to Blackpool until January 2 can do no harm to the Birmingham-born shot-stopper.

He made his debut for the Seasiders on Saturday against Doncaster Rovers in a 2-0 defeat but Lyness is hoping to win more games in the coming weeks.

"You never want to lose when you get on the pitch, you want to win every game but you can't win every game it is all about the performance on the day. 

"I was obviously disappointed with conceding two goals so that is something I will take on the chin and work on.

"Obviously my aim is to make the saves when required and keep the ball out of the net and two goals against isn't ideal but we will work on that and try to keep a clean sheet this week. 

"Hopefully, if I play every week I will start to improve and get those points on the board for Blackpool.

"I am hoping to contribute to Blackpool and if I can do that and get those points racked up then that's what my job is."
