Kean relieved to survive 'wobble'

Published Add your comment

Blackburn boss Steve Kean was relieved to see his team emerge triumphant against QPR at Ewood Park after they almost squandered a three-goal lead.

Rovers looked set for a comfortable afternoon at the interval, with strikes from Ayegbeni Yakubu (15), Steven Nzonzi (23) and a Nedum Onuoha own goal (45) putting them firmly in the driving seat. The visitors mounted a fightback, however, with substitute Jamie Mackie netting twice to set up a tense finale.

But the hosts, who were beaten 7-1 by Arsenal last weekend, managed to hold on for the 3-2 win and Kean said: "I felt the first-half display was really exceptional and I think we put to bed the disappointment of the Arsenal game a little bit."
