Appleton Happy But Wants To Improve Side

Michael Appleton watched Blackburn ease past Derby County and into the fifth round of the FA Cup on Saturday, but he is still looking to improve the side.
The new Blackburn boss got his first win since coming to Rovers and although the win was a very welcome one, Appleton is still convinced that everything is not yet up to standard at Ewood Park.
And if that means a dip into the transfer market to bring in a couple of new face, then that's just what he will be doing.
After the game, he told reporters: "I'm delighted to be making progress in the competition but I still believe we need to bring in a couple more players before next Thursday's deadline if possible.
"There is still plenty to play for in the league and areas where I would like to see us being able to call on reinforcements.
"I don't have a budget as such but I am sure the owners would support me if I went to them with a viable deal for the right players.
"Victory is all-important in the cup but keeping a clean sheet at a place like Pride Park is also a big plus for us."
