Juande Ramos is determined to erase last week's disappointment against Newcastle with a positive display at Blackburn on Saturday.

It's well documented that Juande was far from happy with events at the Lane last Sunday when we went from a strong position, 1-0 up midway through the first half, to concede an equaliser on the stroke of half-time and were then outplayed in the second half, Newcastle running out 4-1 winners.

Rovers are flying high with two defeats in their last 14 games in the Barclays Premier League and will still believe they can catch Everton in fifth.

Speaking at his pre-Rovers media briefing on Thursday, Juande was asked what was said in training this week. "Only to analyse the situation and then to think about the next game that's coming up - we are thinking about Blackburn now," he said. "Our intention is to play a good game and to win the match and that last weekend's experience is not repeated.

"The team want to finish the season in the best position as possible, as high up as they can in the league table for the club, for the fans and for the squad.

"We have to especially make sure that what happened last weekend is not repeated again. We must play a good game and come out with a victory and to get back to a situation of normality."

Juande also reserved special praise for Jermaine Jenas, who returns to fitness for the trip to Ewood Park.

He said: "JJ missed the last two games, first because of injury and then through illness. But he's a magnificent player who's had a terrific season."
