Blackburn boss Kean pleased with victory over Kilmarnock

Blackburn Rovers boss Steve Kean was pleased with victory over Kilmarnock.

Kean was a delighted man after Rovers finished their pre-season preparations with a 4-1 win over Kilmarnock at Rugby Park.

David Dunn, Jason Roberts (2) and David Goodwillie were all on the scoresheet.

"It was good to end the pre-season matches with a win," the Rovers boss told the club's website. "You know you are going to get a good competitive match when you play a team from Scotland and I felt that was what we got.

"We scored some good goals, had a couple of penalties and I was delighted for David Goodwillie to score on his debut.

"It was a typical goal from him, his awareness to pick up the bounce of the ball, to turn inside and score, he's a natural finisher.

"He's got that goal out of the way now and we are all delighted for him, he hasn't even had time to train with the lads yet, so that goal will do him the world of good.

"We now lose some of the lads as they go off on international duty, but it is the same for all teams, we just have to get on with it and fully focus on next weekend and Wolves."
