We aren't a million miles away from being a good team

26 February 2016

Boss Paul Lambert is adamant that Rovers will start to rise up the table if they continue to put in the sort of performances shown recently.

Wednesday's 1-0 loss against Derby County meant Rovers remain 19th in the league, eight points above the bottom three.

As Rovers prepare to face MK Dons at Ewood this Saturday, Lambert has admitted that he is frustrated to see the side where they are in the table, but insists that the team are continuing to improve. 

"Against Derby I thought we were excellent, I really did," said the Rovers boss. "I thought the whole game was really good.

"When you analyse it coming back on the bus you are frustrated because we've played Middlesbrough, Derby and Hull in the last few weeks, three teams that are vying to get out of this league, and we haven't been a million miles away from it.

"The frustrating thing for me is I'm sick and tired of being where were are, sick and tired of not being at the competitive edge of it at the top end. I'm pretty sure if you asked the Blackburn Rovers fans they'd be sick and tired of it.

"We have to get up there. That is something that has to be rectified. There's no point beating about the bush or camouflaging it, where we are, nobody wants to be there."
