The Express & Star quotes Appleton as saying about West Brom and manager Darren Moore: "I’ll be amazed if they don’t finish in the top two this year with the front two they’ve got with Gayle and Rodriguez.
"But ultimately you’ve still got to go and do it, you’ve got to deliver every week, and I’m sure he will.”
Gayle, who joined the Baggies on loan from Premier League club Newcastle United in the summer transfer window, has scored eight goals and provided one assist in 10 Championship starts for Darren Moore’s side so far this season, according to WhoScored.
Rodriguez has scored seven goals and provided one assist in 12 league starts for West Brom so far this campaign, according to WhoScored.
West Brom are second in the Championship table at the moment with 24 points from 12 matches, just a point behind leaders Sheffield United.
The Baggies will take on Wigan Athletic away from home in the Championship on Saturday afternoon and will fancy their chances of picking up all three points from the encounter.
