Roberts out to ruin party

BY foxsports • May 11, 2011

Having beaten nearest rivals Chelsea at the weekend, the Red Devils need only to avoid defeat against Rovers to clinch a record-breaking 19th league title. Roberts admits that could make it even more difficult for Blackburn to come out on top, but he is looking forward to the challenge of going up against the best side in the country. "I've been part of teams who have beaten Manchester United at Ewood Park and it's a fantastic feeling. Maybe we can do that again," said the striker. "I wouldn't relish the opportunity to stop them winning the title but I'd relish the opportunity of beating Manchester United. It doesn't come round often in your career. "They are worthy champions. They have been fantastic this season. But they have to come to Blackburn to get a result." Blackburn's top-flight survival has not yet been confirmed and manager Steve Kean insists the focus will be on winning the game for their own needs, rather than spoiling United's party. "We just want to do our job first. It's not a case of us stopping United," Kean explained. "It's about us doing our job so we can finish as high up the table as we can. "We approach every game with no bias or no malice towards anyone else. We'll just try to do the best for our club."
