Hughes surprised by Keegan's Newcastle problems

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."
