Dunn: Losing Hughes Isn't A Fatal Blow

Dunn: Losing Hughes Isn't A Fatal Blow

Blackburn Rovers midfielder David Dunn has conceded that losing Mark Hughes was a major blow, but this IS a blow that Rovers can recover from.

Dunn is doing his best to raise morale by insisting that as disappointing as it is to have seen Hughes leave Ewood Park the club CAN and WILL continue to move forward as he is convinced that John Williams and the Board WILL appoint the right man to make this possible.

Dunn told the Lancashire Telegraph: "It's a massive blow.

"He brought most of the players to the club, including me, and it's very disappointing to see him leave.

"He's built a good team here and it's a big shame that he won't be staying on to take us forwards. But he's gone now and the club has to move on without him.

"It's not the first time John Williams has had to look for a new manager, and I'm sure he will come up trumps again
."
