Rovers slip doesn't worry manager
Despite Rovers abject performance on Saturday it seems that everyone bar the manager is now getting just a shade worried.
Rovers weren't terrible but were very, very far from excellent on Saturday and despite nullifying Everton well and Ruben Rochina looking good on full debut it was only heading one way after the first goal went in... something the steely Scot acknowledges.
Kean told the Daily Mail - 'I don't think it was a worrying performance. The overall performance was of two totally different halves. We were by far the better in the first and they were the better in the second.'
'I think whoever was going to get the first goal today was always going to be in the box seat.
'That fell to Everton today and that was disappointing.'
Kean even feels that the game could have had a totally different outcome if the away side had exploited the space being offered by the Toffees defence.
Kean added - 'We felt because Everton were defending quite high there was lots of space behind Leighton Baines and Tony Hibbert.
'We felt we could exploit that - play the ball back into midfield and then quickly get beyond them and play a penetrating pass.
'But then obviously when the goal went in, that changes the outlook of the game.'
