Pedersen Aiming High For Rovers
Expectation levels were high for Blackburn Rovers this season. The very impressive start to the campaign seems to have raised them even higher, with Morten Gamst Pedersen targeting the top four.
Rovers may be only four matches in, but the are still unbeaten, something that is unusual for Rovers at this stage as they are notoriously slow started. However, with Rovers having one of the most lethal strike forces in the country according to Pedersen (Tottenham Hotspur were considered by many as the best, but with Matt Derbyshire, Benni McCarthy, Maceo Rigters, Jason Roberts and Roque Santa Cruz Rovers are looking very strong, personally I feel Liverpool have the strongest.) so the Rovers winger feels that this can help Rovers push on into a top four place.
He told Dagbladet.no: “The big clubs can get the headlines then we can sneak up from behind.
“We had a good team last year and we have kind of got some new players, considering who's back from injury, for example Robbie Savage and Ryan Nelsen.
“And we have Benni McCarthy and Roque Santa Cruz who are fun to play with.
“I don't think many Premier League teams have a better strike-force than we do at the moment.
“They work hard and score goals, and we do have Jason Roberts as a back-up.”
A top four place is going to be pretty tough for Rovers to achieve, but if the unbeaten run of fourteen matches keeps going, and the good start is built on, with Rovers always very strong at the tail end of the season you never know? You have to set your targets high, as Pedersen has.
