Kean taking positives from loss

Published Add your comment

Steve Kean is not letting two defeats on the trot get Blackburn down, with the manager insisting that positives can be drawn from Rovers’ 3-1 defeat to Aston Villa on Sunday.

Blackburn are currently bottom of the Barclays Premier League table, and while the season has only just got underway, losses to Wolves and Villa will no doubt have an affect on the team’s morale.

But Kean said that the pressure to make a comeback will spur Blackburn on, with the side used to having high expectations placed over their head.

“I can take any pressure because at the end of the day when you are doing the right things with the players, when the players are together, when the spirits are good, you know you will be okay,” Kean said.


“We had it last year. We are two games in at the moment, last year there was a hell of a lot of pressure and I was very confident the boys would come through. They will be fine.”

Kean also said that, while Villa secured a convincing win over Rovers, he isn’t getting worried about being at the foot of the table just yet.

He added: “It is my job to stand here when we win and give the credit back to the players and when we don’t win I will answer the questions and give an honest opinion.

“I thought we played well, I thought against Wolves there were periods when we played well. But we don’t have any points on the board and we will need to change that and we will need to change that quickly.”
