Steve Kean insists he understands the anger of Blackburn's supporters after being subjected to familiar calls for his head from the terraces during the 2-1 npower Championship defeat to Middlesbrough.

Rovers remain top of the npower Championship ahead of the rest of the weekend's fixtures, but Kean was barracked as his charges turned in a lacklustre display to suffer their first defeat of the season.

"I share their frustrations," Kean said when asked about the abuse. "As a staff, as a group, we're frustrated we've lost our unbeaten run."
