Blackburn Rovers might have been beaten by Chelsea (again!) on Sunday but Rovers manager Mark Hughes is refusing to be downcast.

Rovers had chances against Chelsea (but didn’t work the goalkeepers enough, both of them if truth be known) and put in a MUCH better performance than we have seen in recent weeks but we were still beaten by Joe Cole’s goal midway through the first half. Despite our best efforts we couldn’t get anything, and even after defeat Hughes was happy with the performance and is taking the positives from it.

Hughes told Sky Sports: “I think in the first half we created a good few chances and on another day against lesser opposition they would have gone in for us.

“In the second half we were trying to unlock the door but it is very difficult to draw a Chelsea team out of their defensive positions.

“I thought we had a great deal of positives today. Our play, given the confidence we have lacked on occasions, was good.

“We have come up against one of the top sides in the country and we have done okay
.”

  • We were MUCH, MUCH better and on another day we would have got something. Positives SHOULD be taken from this and if we carry on playing like this we will be picking up plenty of points in the weeks to come.

  • I dont think Hughes or Blackburn for that matter had much negatives in the match, and thus have no reason to be downcast. A very good performance by you guys against us, and a single goal decided the game in our favour. Goodluck for the future!

  • Cheers dude. Manchester City is going to be a hell of a tough match tonight but if we play anywhere near as good as this then we will have a great chance of ending their home record.
