Blackburn Rovers boss Mark Hughes admits he's surprised at how difficult Kevin Keegan has found things upon his Newcastle United return.

After victory on Saturday, Hughes said: "Maybe I am surprised there has not been a positive result yet.

"We all saw the fantastic scenes when he first came back. I think everybody was glad to see Kevin Keegan back in football.

"It has not quite happened yet but it is only a matter of time. It takes time, everybody knows that. The longer Newcastle go without getting a positive result, the more apprehension and tension there is in their play.

"I am sure they will have enough and won't go down this year. I would be very surprised if they did."
