Blackburn manager Steve Kean believes his side can avoid relegation from the Premier League, despite having the second worst form in the league, and sitting only one point above the danger-zone.
Rovers have not won any of their last 11 games in all competitions, and remain in a relegation dogfight along with West Ham, Wolves, Wigan and Blackpool. Monday night saw them defeated 1-0 by Manchester City, and next Saturday Blackburn face Bolton, who beat Arsenal on Sunday.
Yet talking to Eurosport, Kean remains defiant: “If we lost two successive home games psychologically it would be very tough for us. We have a very good group. They are strong characters. I don’t think we will be beaten by Bolton.”
As well as Bolton next Saturday, Rovers play two of their remaining four games against fellow strugglers West Ham and Wolves, and the remaining tie against league leaders Manchester United.
