Yakubu form gives Kean hope

Published Add your comment

Blackburn manager Steve Kean believes the goal threat of veteran striker Ayegbeni Yakubu can help steer his side to Barclays Premier League safety.

Despite being forced to play a lone attacking role for a team that has been battling against relegation for most of the season, the Nigerian has still managed to notch an impressive 13 goals this season, 12 of them in the league. Yakubu added another two during Blackburn's stunning win at Manchester United on Saturday.

"It is fairly obvious. When you see the amount of goals he has got now, we are desperate to keep him fit," said Kean.
