Blackburn manager Steve Kean has defended his team selection at Cardiff on Tuesday and claims his use of the word "forfeited" in relation to Rovers' Carling Cup exit has been misinterpreted.

The under-pressure Scot is keen to focus on getting his side out of the relegation zone after a miserable start to the season. That prompted him to say, after the quarter-final 2-0 defeat to the npower Championship side: "We are in a position where we have forfeited going through in this competition and having the chance to reach a cup final."

That statement was leapt upon by the media but Kean has tried to clarify his words. He told rovers.co.uk: "My comments at the press conference were taken out of context. There is absolutely no way that we would ever consciously forfeit a game, quite the opposite."
