Rovers manager Steve Kean believes his side can still beat the drop even though they lost to the Red Devils and are now facing a relegation battleBlackburn Rovers manaager Steve Kean believes his side can still survive in the Premier League despite losing 2-0 to Manchester United.
The Red Devils scored two late goals through wingers Antonio Valencia and Ashley Young as they went five points clear at the top of the table, while at the same time forcing Rovers back into the relegation battle.
Kean speaking to Sky Sports said: "If we can play at that standard for the next seven games - not for 80 mins but 90 - we'll get plenty of wins.
|NO GREAT ESCAPE?
||Blackburn are 6/4 with William Hill to be relegated this season.
"We've got to take all the positives out of the first 80 minutes. We've got to set that standard.
"We were playing against the potential champions," the 44-year-old added. "I think for 80 minutes we gave it a really good go. Their goalkeeper has had a very good night. He's made good saves when we've had our little opportunities.
"I thought (Junior) Hoilett and Yakubu caused them problems."
Blackburn's next game is against West Bromwich Albion on Saturday when they will be hoping they can climb back out of the relegation zone.
