Blackburn boss Appleton hails Kazim-Richards after Arsenal shock

Blackburn Rovers boss Michael Appleton hailed matchwinner Colin Kazim-Richards after victory at FA Cup opponents Arsenal.

Kazim-Richards was once on the books at Arsenal as a youngster, before beginning his professional career at Bury, with spells at Brighton, Sheffield United, Galatasaray, Toulouse and Olympiacos following before his latest loan move to Rovers.

Appleton said: "Kaz has been fantastic for the last five games and has played in a couple of different roles.

"I am delighted he got the reward today for all of his work, it was not his greatest of strikes, but I think he was just trying not to welly it into Row Z and got the bit of luck he deserved."
