Blackburn boss Appleton full of pride after Arsenal shock

Blackburn Rovers boss Michael Appleton was full of pride after their FA Cup win over Arsenal.

Appleton admitted it was some achievement to have enjoyed three cracks at the FA Cup this season with as many clubs.

"Everyone knows the trouble which came with the job at Pompey, and I had a brief stint at Blackpool when I ended up with a 1-1 draw at Craven Cottage in the last round, then was lucky enough to win at Derby, but this is the icing at the top of the cake," he said.
