Jermaine Jenas recognises the need for a positive result at Blackburn tonight (Wednesday, February 2).
We step straight back into Premier League action after Sunday’s disappointing FA Cup exit at Fulham.
Midfielder ‘JJ’ insists we need to look for maximum points as we bid for a place in the Premier League’s top four.
And that need has increased with United, Arsenal and Chelsea all winning on Tuesday night. Manchester City join us in action tonight with a trip to Birmingham.
JJ knows a tough task awaits at Ewood Park against a Rovers team currently eighth with just three defeats in 12 at home so far.
“It’s a very important game,” he said. “Blackburn have been doing well over the last few weeks and we’ve had a few indifferent results.
“The point at Newcastle ended up being a good point, they are a tough team to play at St James Park, but we need to get back to winning ways and try to get back into fourth.
“After the FA Cup result - that knocked us a little - it would be nice to go there and make a statement.
“A point would normally be a good point at Ewood Park as it’s a tough place to go, but we want to win and we need to win to get back to winning ways.”
