Blackburn Rovers have targeted Blackpool manager Michael Appleton to fill their managerial vacancy: Appleton
The manager of Saturday's opponents has only been in charge of the Tangerines since November 7th. During that time he has won two and drawn two matches, but one of those was against Blackburn.
Appleton did not take training with Blackpool today. However, players insisted that they were not worried, that everything was normal and they were simply focusing on collecting the expected three points at The Valley on Saturday.
Winger Thomas Ince said, 'As players, we stick together. There's a great bunch of lads in there and all we're doing is looking forward to Saturday. Whoever's our manager is whoever's our manager. We can't worry about what's happening off the football pitch. We have to worry about working hard in training, going to Charlton and getting a win.'
