Dunn wants to avert 'tragedy' of Blackburn relegation

David Dunn says Blackburn Rovers will continue their fight to beat the drop as relegation would be a 'tragedy' for all concerned. They are, however, only outside of the bottom three on goal difference and are aware that just two points separate Wigan in 20th from Queens Park Rangers in 16th.

"The football club play a massive part in the local community and that's why the football club need to do as well as we can to fight relegation and stay up, because it would be a tragedy if we did go down," the midfielder told Sky Sports News.

"The one thing that we have shown this year is that we don't give up fighting. We have had some real ups and downs this season but one thing is for sure, we always bounce back."

This weekend there is a trip to fellow strugglers Wolves providing them with an opportunity to push a rival deeper into the mire.

"It's a very important game for us, but we went there last game of the season last year and had a very good result," said Dunn.

"If we can repeat what we did at the end of last season we will be very happy, but we are all aware that it is going to be a very tough game for us and they are going to be scrapping for their lives as well."
