Boss Kean: I won’t let heads drop

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

BLACK­BURN man­ager Steve Kean is re­fus­ing to get down­cast de­spite his side drop­ping back into the rel­e­ga­tion zone.

Had Rovers held on for the last 10 min­utes against Man United at Ewood Park on Mon­day night, they would have clam­bered up to 16th.

But late goals from An­to­nio Va­len­cia and Ash­ley Young means they are level on 28 points with 17th-placed QPR and Wi­gan in 19th.

But Kean still saw enough to in­sist his men will hold their nerve.

He said: “Even if we’d beaten United it wouldn’t have fin­ished things.

“It has been a bad week­end but there will be good ones, when we get a re­sult and other teams around us are ex­pect­ing to win but don’t.

“We just have to take the pos­i­tives, which are the chances we cre­ated and the fact we held the po­ten­tial cham­pi­ons for 80 min­utes.”
