Hughes: In The End We Really Deserved The Win
Blackburn Rovers manager Mark Hughes was delighted with the 1-0 win over Portsmouth on Sunday afternoon, a win that keeps Rovers' season alive.
To have ANY chance of an Intertoto Cup spot Rovers had to win and thanks to Roque Santa Cruz's strike near the end Rovers came away from Fratton Park with all three points, and all three points that Hughes felt were deserved.
Hughes told Sky Sports: "It was an excellent performance by ourselves, especially in the second half when we went up 10 or 15 per cent from the first half.
"I think we were comfortable in the first half but that extra 10 or 15 per cent just took us over the line.
"It was a fantastic goal by Roque. It was good movement and interplay between the two forwards, who I thought were excellent all day and led from the front.
"In the end we really deserved the win."
