Williams Sets Rovers Target

Williams Sets Rovers Target

Blackburn Rovers chairman John Williams knows that Rovers need to start winning and fast, with it understood that he has set a target of nine wins from the final twenty-two matches to be played.

Paul Ince's future as manager was discussed at Tuesday's monthly board meeting with it understood the board is split on his future, but Ince is safe in his job until Saturday's meeting with Wigan Athletic at least. The match with Wigan is understood to be one that Incey MUST lead us to victory in or that could be the end of his reign at Ewood Park.

Williams told the Lancashire Evening Telegraph. "We have 22 games left and the sooner we start picking up the wins, the better the situation will look.

"The longer we go without a win, the more difficult it becomes for us to get those wins we need.

"The players and the manager believe our fortunes will change once we get that first win, but we all know we need that win quickly.
"

We currently sit second from bottom in the Premier League table and have failed to win in the last ten matches and are on a run of five straight defeats, however, a win over Wigan would relieve some of the pressure building on Incey and move us closer to the 40 points target that Williams has apparently set (40 points is usually the bench mark for survival.)

Winning nine matches seems a tall order at the moment but we are capable of doing this, but MUST start now!!! Wigan IS a must win match, anything short of victory is going to leave us in grave danger and will probably cost Incey his job.

Hopefully the spirit of the Scouse game can be channelled and we can get 3 points on the board this weekend. Using capitals there Walker... very unlike you!!!!

Caps lock is a trait of mine when I'm making (what I see) is a key point isn't it dude.

Well pretty poor target then 40 points, and why is Williams saying this he is their for the finances not the footballing, that is a pretty low target should be 40 points in the next 15 games, and i don't think 40 points might be enough will be close, so risky just to aim for that.

Dont think 40 is going to be enough. Its shocking that our main goal this season is to stay in the premiership after the last few seasons. We should be aiming for Europe every season and Williams should have told Ince that a top 10 finish was the minimum requirement this season. How many players are going to hand in transfer requests if we finish 17th.

40 points from 15 games = 13 wins 1 draw and 1 loss, I doubt Man Utd could do that roverjoy! But I understand what you are trying to say.

27 points from 22 games is what JW is asking. Why dont we get there first and then take it from there. There is still plenty of time to climb the table guys.
