Michael Appleton took charge of the Seasiders for the first time at the weekend and watched his men twice come from behind to earn a point.

But Baptiste, who was named the Championship player of the year at the North West Football Awards on Monday night, insists last season's defeated play-off finalists need to string together a run of victories having won just once in their past seven outings.

Asked whether he was happy with the point, the defender said: "We were disappointed it wasn't more. Especially at home, we feel like we can beat anyone.

"We've been on a bad run and it was important not to lose the game. Coming back twice from behind is encouraging.

"But we want to be climbing the league and we need to be winning games for that."

Rodgers: Sterling can be striker

I

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
