Midfielder David Dunn believes Blackburn have the potential to be a top-10 side this season, provided manager Steve Kean can add the new faces he needs.

Kean has already revealed his desire to bring in a striker, midfielder and central defender after losing Phil Jones to Manchester United, while Jermaine Jones returned to Schalke following the end of his loan spell.

And Dunn feels with the right signings, Blackburn can set their sights on the right end of the table this season, saying: "If we keep strengthening, get a few more players in, maybe a midfielder and a striker, there's no reason why we can't finish top 10.

"Who knows, if we start well and end well, there's no reason why we can't finish a little bit higher.

"I think Jase (Jason Roberts) did great last night as did Mauro (Formica) but I think it would be great for competition to bring in a real hungry striker that can score some goals and maybe a centre midfielder with a bit of experience as well.

"I feel pretty confident about this season, not over-confident but all the lads fitness-wise are really good and training's been going really well. I think if we can keep improving we'll be okay."
