Blackburn fan inspired me - Pedersen

Blackburn Rovers winger Morten Gamst Pedersen says a pep-talk from a local fan boosted his confidence ahead of scoring in Sunday's derby victory over Bolton Wanderers.

"I was at a gas station and met one fan, who said 'I'm sure you'll score soon' - and that made a real difference to me," said the Norwegian.

"It's nice when people believe in you and help you, rather than have a go at you. It really helps your confidence."
