BLACKBURN Rovers caretaker boss Gary Bowyer says he is continuing to prepare the team tomorrow’s trip to Wolves despite the club’s approach to speak to Michael Appleton.

Rovers approached Blackpool about Appleton last night but the Tangerines have refused permission to speak to the 37-year-old.

And Bowyer said at this afternoon’s pre-match press conference that both he and fellow coach Terry McPhillips are remaining focused on their roles in caretaker charge ahead of tomorrow night’s Championship fixture at Wolves.

“As far as we’re aware we will still be taking the team tomorrow night, nothing has changed as far as we’re concerned,” he said.

“I don’t think it’s right for me to talk about another team’s manager.

“We always know things can change in football but we will just carry on until told otherwise.

“I was informed they had made the approach last night but like I say it doesn’t change things.”
