The Seasiders have retained the services of Richard Walker and Danny Shittu until the end of the current season, although it is still a little unclear whether they will both be available for the play-offs, should McMahon`s men continue their recent progress.
Walker is currently on loan from Aston Villa, after Blackpool beat off competition from a number of other sides for his services, while Shittu was farmed out from Charlton.
After scoring a crucial winner against Plymouth in midweek, Walker`s stock has risen at the club, as he had been jeered by some sections of the club`s support earlier in the game against The Pilgrims.
A third piece of good news for McMahon concerns the future of highly-rated defender John Hills.
The former Everton man had looked set to leave in the summer, but he has now promised to reconsider his situation, and the offer on the table from `Pool, whilst concentrating on getting back to match fitness, which should take around three weeks.
