Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp rang up Steve Kean on Monday to talk up Rovers’ prospects.
Apparently Harry was so impressed with Blackburn’s performance in our 2-1 win at Ewood Park at the weekend that he phoned the under pressure boss to give him support.
Kean has been targeted by a section of their support who want him to be sacked.
The Rovers boss told a Tuesday press conference: “It’s coming and I take great credit when somebody of Harry Redknapp’s experience and ability calls me yesterday and tells me that.
“The mood’s good. Sunday was a game where we had a consistent performance. In previous matches we’ve sometimes had a good first-half performance, not so good in the second, but I think we had a good 90-minute performance and I think we were very unlucky.
“You look at the second goal, where there’s a deflection that comes off somebody’s knee and falls into the stride pattern of Van der Vaart.
“Then when we’ve looked through our chances, (Aiyegbeni) Yakubu’s got a header that’s hit Gareth Bale on the back, there’s three or four set-plays that have just fallen between a couple of players. But what we need to do is focus on continuing to make that amount of chances.
“I don’t think on Sunday we had a bad player on the pitch. That’s our standard now, and what we’ve got to do is keep that because I thought it was a real contrast from the last time we played Newcastle.”
