Black hails Rovers' patience
ERIC Black believes patience was a virtue this afternoon after Jordan Rhodes's injury time winner cemented Blackburn Rovers' position in the Championship top six.
Rovers struggled to break down a defensive Watford at times but, after Colin Kazim-Richards had missed a penalty, Rhodes came to their rescue to make it two wins in a row for the hosts.
Caretaker boss Black insisted he was still in the dark about the future, with Rovers expected to make a managerial appointment in the next few days, but was full of praise for his players.
He said: "We knew it would be a difficult game. Watford set up with 10 behind the ball and played on the counter.
"We had to be patient and I thought we were. As a coach I thought the players were fantastic.
"I thought Jordan Rhodes was going to take the penalty, but Kaz did. Thankfully Jordan has done what he does best at the end.
"I don't know what is going to happen. I was told to take it up to today and I have read what you all have."
