After beating Wigan Athletic on New Years Day Blackburn Rovers boss Mark Hughes is targeting another top six finish this season despite the early season struggles.
A 3-0 Victory over Wigan on Monday saw us complete the double over them, as we had done Middlesbrough the match prior. This made it our third straight Premiership victory, something that hadn't happened since victories over Manchester City, Boro and Wigan between mid September and early October.
Now with players set to return and the January transfer window open Sparky is looking for the run to go on and our charge up the League to continue, not merely to end with us now in eleventh place. We have a game in hand and are only eight points away from sixth position!
After the Wigan victory Hughes said:
"It was very much in our thoughts at the start of the season, and know we have put ourselves in a position to do it again.
"We are up to 11th, so we are there or thereabouts, and hopefully we can kick-on in the second-half of the season as we did at this same stage last season.
"Coming into this match there was a real determination in the dressing room to get the three wins in a row.
"Although we had done well before today, it was never a case of us thinking we had done enough.
"We've put the defeat to Arsenal behind us, although it was never a 6-2 score-line in any way, shape or form."
Confidence is now very high so a run similar, strike that a run better than the one we had earlier in the season when we went six League matches unbeaten will see us right back in contention although two out of three of our next games are against Arsenal and Chelsea…
