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

Kean's a happy chappy

Rovers are one step closer to safety this morning after seeing off a talented if off colour Sunderland side 2-0 at Ewood last night.

Hoilett and Yakubu got the goals in a spirited second half which saw Rovers win out deserved winners in the end.

And manager Steve Kean was all smiles after moving Rovers up to 28 points and six away from the drop zone.

Kean told the official website - 'It was great to see the fans going home happy once again.

'I thought the atmosphere again was excellent and I think from our point of view, to get some consistency together breeds confidence and I think that was there for everybody to see.

'After the first thirty minutes we were slightly disappointed we weren't ahead as we had two really good chances which Sunderland defended really well.

'Then we dropped our intensity a little bit but I said to the lads at half time that if we could raise it again and maintain it then they wouldn't be able to live with us and that proved to be the case.

'The partnership of Yakubu and Junior is starting to show signs of causing all sorts of problems for central defenders.

'And now with back-to-back wins and back-to-back clean sheets it is fantastic really.'

Back to back wins and back to back clean sheets, dreamland?

Good to see another solid, spirited display. These are the sort of results that WILL keep us up.

Two good results, but first back to back wins in 50 games? Let's not go nuts.

Great result, we look set to beat the Christmas curse if we can get a few more results like this. Credit where credit's due, well done Mr Kean and well done to all the players. Keep it up we're nearly there...

I have been thoroughly suprised in the treatment of Steve Kean; he has your lot playing decent FOOTBALL, and not that tripe Sam Allardyce used to demand. When we played you earlier in the season you should of got more from the game, and didnt play bad in any shape or form. I was then intrigued by the abuse the manager was getting and decided to watch your next few games and despite results not falling your way, you were playing well. It seems you have far too many fans who have no footballing knowledge, and only read into the score at the end of the game and pay no attention to anything within the 90 minutes. Steve Kean has had the backing of the majority of those in football but not the Blackburn fans, which I find laughable. 'Fairweather fans' aplenty at Ewood Park it seems!
