Blackburn v Sheff Wed reaction

Rochina scored twice in the first four minutes at Ewood Park on

Wednesday night and David Goodwillie added a third four minutes

later as Rovers eased into the third round with a 3-1 win. Kean

said: “I see Ruben every day and I know the quality he’s got.

Tonight we had a glimpse of what we’ve got for the future. His play

tonight was exceptional.” Kean confirmed there have been plenty of

developments in the transfer market with Brett Emerton in talks to

go back to Australia and Simon Vukcevic and George John both

arriving. Kean said: “With Brett, there has been interest from his

hometown club and we have had a bit of dialogue. If Brett does move

it will be a family decision, not a football decision. “If Brett

decides it’s something he’d like to explore, you’ve got to give

respect for the service he’s given the club. If we do lose him, it

will be very, very sad.” Kean confirmed Vukcevic had picked up his

work visa and would now join the squad, while John had his Greek

passport and was due to have his medical on Thursday. Kean said he

was also due to continue talks over a third player. He added: “I

met a player last night with permission from his club. But there is

some medical and contractual stuff to do.” Wednesday boss Gary

Megson slammed his side’s “shocking” start to the game and insisted

their second-half revival, which saw Clinton Morrison pull one back

five minutes after the restart, provided scant consolation. Megson

said: “I think we kicked off at about ten past eight. Our defending

was shocking for the first goal and we were shell-shocked and

didn’t show a great deal of common sense. “We spoke at half-time

about forgetting the actual score and making sure we showed a bit

of pride and played something like we can, which I thought we did.

“The players from that point onwards did all right. But it’s not a

case of redemption because that wouldn’t be acceptable. There were

individual positives but not as a team.”
