Blackburn boss Kean feels for Dunn after penalty miss

Blackburn Rovers boss Steve Kean says no-one pointed the finger at David Dunn for his penalty miss in defeat to Newcastle United.

Blackburn Rovers boss Steve Kean says no-one pointed the finger at David Dunn for his penalty miss in defeat to Newcastle United.

Dunn has been one of Rovers' most reliable performers this season and Kean was certainly not about to criticise the midfielder for missing the spot-kick.

He said: "David's really disappointed but he showed enough character to take it. Sometimes you have to take your hat off to the goalkeeper, who I think on the night made a lot of good saves.

"I wouldn't blame my players at all, I thought we had a really good go at it and if we can do that against a team like Newcastle then we'll win enough games."
