Dunn Getting Better All The Time

Dunn Getting Better All The Time

David Dunn scored his first goal for Blackburn Rovers since returning to Ewood Park against Arsenal on Sunday and Mark Hughes feels it is no more than he deserves, as he is getting better ALL the time.

Dunn had a few moments last season, but on the whole his fitness was still lacking (which was MORE than understandable.) However, Hughes feels that Dunny is getting better with each game he plays and his showing on Sunday showed signs that he could be getting back to his very best (as EVERYONE had hoped, but several worried wouldn't be the case.)

His performance against Arsenal (from what I am told) was superb and his goal (with a GREAT deal of help from Arsenal goalkeeper Jens Lehmann!) was reward for his efforts.

Hughes told the Lancashire Telegraph: "We are delighted for Dunny. I thought he was excellent,' said the Rovers boss.

"His general play and his determination to have a positive effect on the game was excellent, and he'll be delighted with the goal.

"I pulled his leg afterwards and said it was an own goal, but he wasn't having any of that.

"Seriously, though, he looks stronger in every game he plays and he's having a bigger influence every time he takes part, so I'm delighted that he's back and getting to the levels that we knew he could
."

GET IN THERE Dunny, good lad!
Personally I was not sure that Dunny would play that much this season but if he keeps playing well it WILL be hard to leave him out. Fingers crossed we see much more of the same, and PLENTY of goals (helping hands from opposing goalkeepers WILL be accepted lol!)

He's an f*ing thug, along with all the rest of his teammates! That wasn't football from Rovers, it was an attempted mugging!

That is a priceless comment Decimus Poole. I thought Dunn had an exceptional second half, he was inspiring and looked a real leader on the pitch, plus his drive from the middle of the park is back. Played some nice thread passes too that Cesc would have been proud of if he wasn't too weak to hold onto the ball!

I thought Dunn's link up with Bentley especially was lovely. It was a lovely 1-2 for the goal. It's good to see him getting back to what we know he can do. Fingers crossed for an injury free season for him...!
