Blackburn Rovers boss Steve Kean admits their Premier League survival hopes are on a knife edge after a 2-0 defeat to Tottenham.

Goals from Rafael van der Vaart and Kyle Walker sealed the win for Spurs, who moved back into fourth place, while Blackburn failed to muster a single attempt on goal.

"As far as our application and effort in the game, that was there," Kean said.

"The normal part of our game that is normally good and of quality - getting the ball into the front two - was difficult today.

"I don't think we got any type of quality into the box. We normally do and that was the disappointing factor of the game."
