Blackburn's under-fire boss Steve Kean is convinced the troubled club will avoid relegation from the Barclays Premier League.

Kean's team are bottom of the table and the Scot has been the subject of a prolonged supporters' campaign for his removal. The situation reached its nadir as Kean suffered a torrent of abuse during and after a loss to fellow strugglers Bolton last week.

Yet Kean maintains that he has the full backing of owners Venky's and, after lifting spirits with a draw at Liverpool on Boxing Day, is now making plans for January signings. When asked if he and the team were confident of survival, Kean told Sky Sports News: "Of course we are, absolutely no question."
