Steve Kean still targeting 'top-10' with Blackburn
Monday 05 December 2011
Blackburn manager Steve Kean is confident his side can secure a top-10 finish in the Barclays Premier League.
The Scot, whose side beat Swansea 4-2 at the weekend to move within a point of climbing out of the bottom three, thinks the next couple of weeks will be pivotal in allowing them to move up the table.
Rovers, six points adrift of 10th-placed Everton, have matches against Sunderland, West Brom and Bolton - all teams in the lower half of the table.
Asked if the top 10 was still his aim, the Rovers boss said: "Definitely. We want to push on.
"We feel as if we are in a false position just now but we are here and we have got to keep winning games.
"We are not shy of goals. We are disappointed with the goals we have conceded but we have got a body back in Chris Samba. Once we get a full unit back, we will be much better."
Kean added in the Lancashire Telegraph: "We will always score goals and when we have got the unit, we will climb the table fast.
"We've got a real nice run of games now. I would like to think over the next three games, Sunderland, West Brom and Bolton, we will get ourselves out of the position we are in."
