Blackburn manager Mark Hughes was full of praise for his 10-man side after their 3-1 victory over Wigan kept alive their hopes of UEFA Cup football.

Roque Santa Cruz began and ended the scoring with two close-range headers. Wigan had equalised through Marlon King´s 17th-minute penalty - for which Christopher Samba was sent off for bringing down Emile Heskey - but Jason Roberts scored against his former club on the stroke of half-time.

"I thought we were excellent, a lot of big performances," said the Rovers boss, who said he had no arguments with Samba´s dismissal.
