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."
