Reusing Compost Affected by Tomato Blight to Grow Potatoes

Can I reuse compost that has had tomatoes which were affected by blight? I usually reuse the compost from the greenhouse to grow the following year's new potatoes in bags.

Tomato blight needs living plant tissue to survive, which means it won't survive in a compost heap. It is fine to use the compost.
