Results will improve, says Ince

Blackburn manager Paul Ince remains confident his side will soon find form, despite seeing Rovers concede four goals for the second time this season.

Saturday's defeat by Arsenal left Blackburn 18th in the Premier League, but Ince urged fans not to worry.

"It's early doors and I'm not thinking about positions at the moment," he told BBC Radio Lancashire.

"All I'm thinking about is performances and I'm just looking forward to next week's game."

We haven't got a big enough squad to start resting players

Paul Ince
Ince feels it is unfair to compare his own squad with Arsenal's multi-million pound internationals.

"We haven't got a big enough squad to start resting players," he said.

"It's OK for the bigger clubs to do that, but Vince Grella has come back with a pulled calf and we've had Roque Santa Cruz in the air for two days.

"And when you're playing one of the best teams in the land it's no good when you don't see them for two weeks."
