Kean: We deserve more points

The Ewood Park side currently find themselves 19th in the Premier

League with just six points from their opening 11 matches. Rovers

have not enjoyed the easiest of schedules of late and have suffered

unfortunate home defeats to the likes of high-flying Tottenham and

Chelsea. Kean has been buoyed by the support he has received from

visiting players and managers, insisting their performances have

merited better results. The Scottish tactician is not dwelling on

their poor start to the campaign and he believes his Rovers squad

remains strong enough to challenge for a top10 place. “If you look

at this season and the way we’re playing, we deserve more points,”

explained Kean in the Daily Record. “And that’s coming from

speaking to people like Harry (Redknapp). He told me he felt we

deserved a point when we lost to Spurs. “Andre Villas-Boas and John

Terry also came in to see me after Chelsea beat us. They told us

what a tough game we had given them and guys like Ashley Cole and

Frank Lampard said the same thing. “I don’t think they say that

week in, week out to other managers. “I don’t look at this season

in terms of trying to salvage something. I think we have a good

enough squad to be in the top ten. “We’ll get thought this little

period as we did last season, and we’ll be stronger and better for

it. You always have to take the longer view. Seasons don’t last 10

games. “In one of our last games it was the youngest Blackburn team

since 1996. So the future is bright and the owners know that.”
