Allardyce: A Really Good Workout
Blackburn Rovers came away from Cambridge United with a 4-0 win on Tuesday evening much to Sam Allardyce's satisfaction.
Pre-Season kicked off for Rovers and goals from Keith Andrews, El-Hadji Diouf and two from Jason Roberts secured a comfortable win but it was more about the workout for Allardyce who was very pleased with what he saw and was given.
Allardyce told The Official Blackburn Rovers Website: "It was very, very good. It was our first competitive game and we've had a very nice evening.
"It was a really good surface. The groundsman tells me they've just laid it this year, so it was in perfect condition.
"There were four well taken goals and a clean sheet, so it was a really good workout. We are now looking forward to our little trip away."
The only drawbacks were a knock to Keith Treacy's ankle and Alex Marrow picking up a slight groin strain.
He added: "There was only a slight knock on Keith Treacy's ankle, so I took him off as a precaution. I don't think it will be too bad. Alex Marrow got a bit of a groin strain in the first half, but apart from that, everyone is fine."
Pre-Season is more about performances and getting match fitness levels right, however, we can be happy with a lot of these boxes being ticked on Tuesday!!
