Hughes Hails Victorious Blackburn
Blackburn Rovers boss Mark Hughes has praised his side following our tremendous 4-1 third round victory over Premiership rivals Everton.
The toffees, currently sitting a couple of places ahead of us were ruthlessly brushed aside with a degree of good fortune by a young Rovers side. I would not be at all surprised if we also see the two sides passing in the Premiership in the coming weeks and months also we are on a role.
"We were excellent today," said Hughes.
"It was a perfect day from our point of view, fantastic day really.
"I gave an opportunity to a number of players. People might have thought we were taking the game lightly, but to score as many goals as we did the players deserve a lot of credit.
"We thought early on we'd pepper the Everton goal and we got a goal and it settled us down.
"We had to withstand a bit of pressure, but on occasions broke very well. All in all a very professional performance.
"I'm pleased we've been able to come through this and progress to the fourth round."
The draw for round four takes place at lunchtime today.
Meanwhile Sparky is due to hand out another of his favourite things… a trial to a potential signing.
Skysports (amoung others now) are reporting Feyenoord forward Ali Boussaboun will spend time this week with Rovers. The Moroccan-born 27-year-old is currently contracted to Feyenoord but despite having two-and-a-half years left on his deal with the Dutch club he's been told he can leave.
