Hughes Wants Fans Back
Hughes believes the vast improvement in Blackburn's form should bring the fans back to Ewood Park.
Although the attendences for many premiership clubs have shown a downward trend this season, the gate of only 17,691 for the 4-1 win over Charlton on Saturday was 10 000 fans down on the same fixture last year.
Hughes said, in an interview with the Lancashire Evening Telegraph: "It's important we keep winning at home, especially as we are going into a period of games against the so-called bigger teams. I hope everyone has enjoyed the home performances up to this point and maybe we'll get a few more through the door. It's important that we play well at Ewood then, hopefully, through word of mouth, people will want to come and see us play."
Adding about the 4-1 mauling of the Addicks: "I think everyone who was there really enjoyed themselves." Hmmm, possibly not the Charlton fans!!
