Midfielder hopes Rovers are not Dunn for
David Dunn says it would be his greatest achievement at Blackburn if they avoid relegation following a turbulent season at Ewood Park.
The 32-year-old Blackburn-born midfielder has enjoyed some good times in his two spells at the club, which included promotion to the top flight in 2001 and a League Cup final win. However, this campaign has been difficult under Steve Kean as Rovers have been embroiled in a fight to escape from the clutches of the drop zone, while a section of the club's supporters have protested strongly against both the manager and owners Venky's throughout. Rovers rose above Saturday's latest protest march to defeat Norwich 2-0 at Ewood Park, but still sit three points adrift of safety with just three matches remaining. And, a frustrated Dunn is hopeful that they can do enough to ensure Premier League football is still on the menu for Rovers next term. "It hurts a lot," Dunn said in the Lancashire Telegraph. "Everything around it hurts me. There just seems to be unrest everywhere you look. "But unfortunately that happens sometimes when things aren't going well. "I think there have probably been too many changes in a short space of time and I think any club that makes that many changes would be affected. "That goes from at the training ground to down at Ewood (Park). But we've got to keep going." Dunn added: "I think winning the League Cup was really good and the promotion year was great, and my England cap. "But I do think that after everything we've had to put up with this year, and it's been so frustrating for everyone involved with the club, it would be a great achievement to stay up. "Basically, whoever goes down deserves to go down. Hopefully the big man upstairs can look down on us and keep us in the league. "We've got to match the other teams for determination and willingness to grind out results and I think too many times this season we haven't done that."
