Hughes will not contemplate defeat

Published Add your comment

Mark Hughes claims losing is not an option for his Blackburn side on the first day of the season when they travel to Middlesbrough on Saturday.

With Blackburn´s second Premier League match being against Arsenal a week on Sunday, Hughes fears that unless his players get off to a good start at the Riverside they will be playing catch-up.

He said: "We want to hit the ground running and the first win is vitally important."
