John Eustace insists he is 'not interested' in other team's results and will only focus on Blackburn Rovers to ensure they stay in the Championship.

With seven games to go until the season ends, supporters and the media have reached the stage of the season where analysing every result from other teams in the relegation battle has become the norm.

Rovers played last of those in the relegation battle on Good Friday, with results at 3pm largely going in their favour. Stoke City and Queens Park Rangers both won, leaping above Rovers, but the gap to the bottom three remains at three points.

With seven tricky matches to come, Eustace revealed he'd not even looked at the 3pm scores before kick-off against Ipswich Town. His sole focus is on ensuring Rovers control their own destiny by picking up enough points to stay in the Championship.

"I honestly haven't seen any of the other results, I am not interested in other people's results," Eustace said.

"The only thing I'm interested in is us. It's down to us how many points we get from now until the end of the season.

"Even if we'd won the game today our approach wouldn't be any different for the final six or seven games. We take each game as it comes and prepare properly for Monday."

Rovers face Sunderland on Easter Monday in what looks like one of their more winnable fixtures that remain. The Black Cats have little to play for and are now not going up or down.

They had gone seven matches without a win, losing six, before the international break but rallied against Cardiff City, winning 2-0 on Friday.

"It's a fantastic football club, 45,000 fans cheering the football team on," Eustace said on the task ahead.

"It will be a difficult game but every game we have played is a difficult match. They have fantastic fans, good support.

"It's a real good arena to play our football. A challenge we're looking forward to. We are doing the right things and we're looking to get three points.

"We will be ready, prepared and we'll see where it takes us."
