Rovers boss Tony Mowbray felt there were encouraging signs with the way the side played against Burton Albion on Friday night.
The new head coach had only taken training once since his appointment last week, a session that was interrupted by storm Doris, but he saw enough in the performance at the Pirelli Stadium to give him hope for the future.
Mowbray admitted that aside from the FA Cup match against Manchester United, he hadn't seen much of Rovers this season, but he was pleased with how quickly the players had taken his methods on board.
"I was pleased with their ability to learn very quickly," Mowbray told Rovers PlayerHD.
"I have to say that I don't know where their standard was, I'd never seen them live this season.
"I'd only seen them in the game on the TV the other week so I don't know the standard of Blackburn Rovers footballers other than I've seen for two training sessions - one that I took and one that I watched.
"So I'm pleased that they took on the information that I gave them. It was a bit of an overload of information that I gave them on the training pitch, and I thought they took it on board really well and the signs are good.
"We've got so much improvement to make of course, and hopefully they want to soak it in and get better and better. If the performance level is high, usually the results follow.
"There is plenty to work on, we can use it as a foundation for moving forward."
Rovers are back in action this Tuesday night when Derby County are the visitors to Ewood Park.
