Nouha Dicko: Wants to improve

Nouha Dicko: Wants to improve

The 20-year-old striker bagged his fourth goal of the season during Saturday's 4-1 win over Peterborough despite making just two starts this term.

The Wigan man was labelled a 'super-sub' by former boss Ian Holloway but now Dicko is striving for a more prominent role at Bloomfield Road.

"It's been a frustrating time for me," he told the Blackpool Gazette. "After my last goal (at Hull in October) I thought the gaffer (Holloway) would have had more confidence in me but it didn't happen.

"I've been desperate to get my chance with the new manager and I hope it's enough to show everyone I can keep improving.

"I'm still young and I have scored some goals, which is good. If the gaffer thinks I have to wait then I'll be patient, but I have to start proving I am good enough to start games...and I'm going to."
