Blackburn Rovers blog: Passion is what will get us through
AFTER robbing Villa to steal what turned out to be a valuable point on Saturday, Wolves away is the most important game of our season so far.
Agree or disagree with the Lancashire Telegraph’s Shout Them To Safety campaign, the fans must try to create an air of positivity in the days leading up to our trip to Molineux.
Wolves’ stuffing at Fulham on Sunday means we are now out of the bottom three, and a win down there would put some real distance between us, both in points and goal difference.
They are a team in real trouble, much like us, and we must take advantage of them.
I was shocked at their managerial appointment – much like we were when Steve Kean was handed the reins at Ewood - and Terry Connor doesn’t seem to have halted the slide for them.
We lack a certain degree of quality these days, which was evident all the way through Saturday’s dire performance, so our survival fight is all about passion – the kind of passion Dunny showed to rescue a point.
He’s not over the hill just yet, and as the only local lad in the dressing room his importance to the team mustn’t be understated.
He is the only person left who fully understands what the club means to the town and its people.
A win at Wolves would set us up nicely for two more massively important games, starting with Sunderland at home on Tuesday March 20 and then at Bolton.
We have every chance of taking something from them and Bolton away.
It is time for positivity and passion among the Rovers faithful.
And a sell-out away end at Molineux is the perfect starting block.
