Sam comfortable with his squad

02 Feb 2010 - 12:08:52

Blackburn Rovers boss Sam Allardyce has shrugged off his failure to bolster his attacking options on transfer deadline day.

Rovers failed to agree terms with Lens to sign Ivory Coast international Aruna Dindane on a loan deal until the end of the season with a view to a permanent summer transfer.

The deal fell through after Benni McCarthy left Ewood Park to join West Ham United, but Allardyce claims the failure to land Dindane - who has been on loan at Portsmouth this season - is not disastrous.

"You never want to be in a panic situation because it is then you make the worst selections and the worst choices. We were not in a panic," he told the Lancashire Telegraph.

"I am very comfortable with the squad, we are improving, we have put ourselves in a reasonable position in the league but we have to go further than that and continue to pick the points up.

"If no other player came our way, I was very content with the squad we have got."
