Blackburn Rovers midfielder David Dunn has said that the club’s performance against Everton in the recent Barclays Premier league match was their best ever in this season.
Blackburn have been struggling for form and also have been unlucky with a lot of injuries to key players. There have been a lot of calls for Steve Kean to be sacked from his position, while fans are also unhappy with new owners Venky’s from India. However, Blackburn have been experiencing a turn in their fortunes since the turn of the year and have already won against Manchester United and taken a point off Everton.
Even though the 3-2 win over Manchester United was by far the most shocking result of the season, Blackburn midfielder David Dunn has said that the 1-1 draw with Everton was easily the best performance of the team this season. He also said that he hopes that the team maintains this kind of performance in the future games as well, which will be more than enough to avoid relegation. As a result of this point, Blackburn Rovers move clear off the bottom of the table and edge closer towards the ultimate safety. There are currently one point off 17th placed Bolton Wanderers, who also managed to get a surprising victory over Liverpool during the weekend.
“Some of the performances recently have been really good. The manager, the players, the owners and even the fans have had their share of criticism, but it’s important we all stay strong and stick together. Blackburn is renowned for being a family club and we need to keep hold of that,” David Dunn said after the match. Despite missing key players like Christopher Samba, Blackburn managed to come out of the tough fixture against Everton with a point.
