Blackburn must sell to buy

Blackburn have scored only 17 goals in 18 Premier League games so far this season and reports says Allardyce is keen on signing a new striker.

“I will have to sell to buy,” he said in The Sun. “We haven’t got the money to buy a Crouchie (Peter) or a Bent (Darren) who were available in the summer.

“That’s why I think we might be better off just working with what we have got and hope that they can come up with the goods.

“There are also other people in other areas who could be contributing and scoring goals for us.”
