Hughes: Rovers Can't Dwell On Result

Blackburn Rovers manager Mark Hughes has said that the defeat at the hands of Aston Villa must quickly be put out of people's minds and he is looking for a response against Newcastle.

Hughes had been quick to point out that the 4-0 scoreline was not a true reflection of the match (and even Villa manager Martin O'Neill agreed) but he is now looking for a response against Newcastle at Ewood Park on Saturday, and he feels that the players will be determined to deliver this.

Hughes said: "Everybody has got to move on and I feel there is a real determination amongst the players to get this result out of their system.

"Even in patches of the game you could see that we are a good side and we have got the opportunity to put things right at the weekend.

"It was one of those nights where you just have to draw a line under it and move on. We know Villa weren't four goals better than us and so do they
."

The sign of a good side (which Rovers are!) is how you respond to things like this, and despite a heavy defeat at home Rovers shouldn't feel any differently about their ambitions for this season.

We've all acknowledged that the Aston Villa match was just one of those things that happens, the true test is how we respond.
Fortunately we are at home again this weekend so it's a perfect chance to right the wrongs and get straight back on the horse.

It definately was a blip...well need to ensure it is by getting that win on Saturday. If we fail to beat the Toon we could see a slump set in. We have to win on Sat.
