Blackburn Rovers boss Michael Appleton admits that he is looking to add to his squad in the loan market.

Blackburn Rovers manager Michael Appleton has revealed that he will look to reinforce his squad in the loan market.

The Ewood Park outfit currently have seven first-team players sidelined through injury, including Colin Kazim-Richards, DJ Campbell and David Bentley.

Midfielder Jason Lowe filled in at right-back during the club's 1-0 FA Cup quarter-final defeat to Millwall in midweek and Appleton has admitted that he needs to address the issue.

"We've got Adam Henley and Bradley Orr, who are both going to be out for a while, so Jason Lowe's had to play at full-back and we'll probably look in that area," PA quotes him as saying.

"DJ's picked up an ankle injury as well, so we have to assess that one.

"David Bentley missed the [Millwall] game because of a medial knee ligament injury so there's plenty of work and plenty of things for us to do in the next 48 hours."

Blackburn play Burnley at Ewood Park on Sunday afternoon.
