Dunn: We're On Target For Success
Blackburn midfielder David Dunn has revealed that manager Mark Hughes sets monthly goals for the team in a bid to take them to a higher level.
The plan which has been used by Hughes in previous seasons seems to be working with Rovers getting off to a marvellous start to the season.
They face Tottenham at White Hart Lane on Sunday, having lost only one of their nine league games.
Dunn, speaking on Rovers Official Website, clarified: 'The manager has stated his intentions by setting targets for the players every month.
'We are well on track, having made a great start to the campaign.
'We feel we can take points anywhere we go now the way we are playing.'
Dunn is pleased to be getting a regular run in the side after an injury-hit spell at Birmingham.
He said: 'It takes time to get your match fitness and I feel good at the moment.
'I am playing in a number of positions and I am happy about that as there is competition for places here.
'I am looking forward to the rest of the season as we are in a good position.
'We have not started well the last two years, so it is a nice change. If we can kick on after Christmas we will be right up there.'
Dunn is delighted fellow midfielder Steven Reid appears to be over his injury problems.
Reid returned after a 15-month abscence because of knee and back injuries on Monday when he played for the reserves.
Dunn said: 'He has a great attitude and is at a club that thinks the world of him.
'He is a superb player, who gets up and down the pitch. He also has a great range of passing.'
