Blackburn Rovers boss Steve Kean was delighted with his side’s ‘excellent’ display as they beat Swansea City 4-2 at Ewood Park.

The win eases some of the pressure on Kean, from the board at least, while their fans still protest and appeal for his sacking.

Rovers had striker Yakubu to thank for the win, scoring all four goals in the win whilst the Swans had another off-day on their travels as they still await a win on the road.

Kean said:

‘The Yak will obviously get the headlines as I think he is the only Rovers player to get four goals in the Premier League,’

‘It is a fantastic feat but I always believe that a striker is only as good as the service and I think the service he got from the midfield unit and from Formica, who also put in a tremendous shift, was excellent.

‘I can’t just single out those two, I thought everybody was excellent.

‘But we are disappointed with the goals we conceded, letting them back into the game when there were stages where we were comfortable.

‘Yes they were always going to have possession, that is the way they play, they pass it around, but most of it is in their own half.

‘Today we were compact when we needed to be, we were expansive at the right time, disappointed with their goals but overall I felt we were in control of the game overall.

‘We had more opportunities and I thought it was a really good three points.

‘I set the lads a target of going unbeaten during this run of games, we’ve started well, now lets continue this next week at Sunderland.’
