Steve Kean remains convinced that Blackburn Rovers can avoid relegation from the Premier League, despite the club residing at the bottom of the Premier League and five points from safety.

The under-fire Rovers manager saw his side surrender a 1-0 lead against Liverpool at Anfield on Boxing Day as Maxi Rodriguez equalised for the Reds to deny the visitors what would have been a crucial three points.

But when asked if Kean and his players were still confident they could remain in the top flight, the Rovers boss responded: “Of course we are, absolutely no question.

“I believe even now, with our injuries, we can go back and look at some real tough decisions,” he told Sky Sports.

“I know everybody can do this but we can go back and look at a last-minute penalty against Norwich, a last-minute penalty against Everton. There have been a number of games where we have just fallen the wrong side of decisions.

“I think we should already have six or seven more points, even though we have got so many defenders out injured.

“We are really confident if we have a good [transfer] window, which I am sure we will, and get these defenders back, then we will really fly out of the blocks in the second part of the season.”
