KEAN STILL CONFIDENT

Blackburn Rovers boss Steve Kean has said that he is extremely confident that Blackburn can survive in the Premier league this season.

The statement comes after the 2-0 win against Wolverhampton Wanderers, which helped Blackburn get out of the relegation zone at this crucial stage of the season.

Fans have been demanding the exit of both Steve Kean and the owners by staging various protests over the last few months, but it seems that the manager has done a decent job with the squad he has at hand. Blackburn did not make any major signings during the January transfer window, while they lost their captain Christopher Samba for around £ 12 million.

Despite this, Blackburn have now made it out of the relegation zone and are now the favourites to avoid relegation ahead of Bolton, QPR, and Wolverhampton Wanderers. This has led to Steve Kean publishing a statement saying that he is extremely confident of Blackburn's survival in the Premier league this season after the win.

Junior Hoilett scored two goals for Blackburn, as they now have a three point crucial from them to the 17th placed club QPR. Fans have totally undermined the position of Steve Kean, but it seems that the current manager will be able to get them to safety.

“I felt as though we probably should have got another couple of goals at the end. What impressed me was the work ethic of our team, I think Junior Hoilett will get the headlines for his goals but I thought right from Paul Robinson, through the back four and the midfield working off the ball were really good at that gave us a platform to get that clean-sheet we have been working so hard to get,” Kean said after the 2-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers.
