'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Kean thinks Rovers can match City

Rovers manager Steve Kean expects his Rovers troops to be on the case from minute one this evening as Rovers head into battle with Man City at Ewood Park.

Kean has even hinted the more aesthetically pleasing style of football seen under his tenure may have to be partly abandoned as points become the best form of prize available.

'It's lovely to win and play nice football but at this stage of the game it's about winning' Kean told Sky Sports.

'We have only lost once in almost four months at home, since I have become manager, so Ewood is going to be a tough place for any team to come.

'City will be looking for three points too and we have to be up and at them straight away, don't let them settle.'

Our Scottish leader has even insisted that he is not envious of the mass investment being made down the road in Manchester and has backed his own players to give their all before the slow burn money spending at Rovers kicks in.

'We have a good group of players too and I've never moaned that we have no depth. Any time we've asked the owners to dip into their pockets and get wages out for loan players or go to other parts of the world and invest in young players for the future they have done that.

'They [City] have had massive investment very quickly, the way we are going to invest is going to be slower over a longer period and I'm sure the owners will back the overall improvement and expansion of the club.'
