Man Utd's Jones: Blackburn will survive

Manchester United young gun Phil Jones is confident his former club will achieve survival this season.

Jones joined United from Blackburn Rovers in the summer and believes the Ewood Park outfit, currently bottom of the table, is capable of avoiding relegation.

"I'm sure they'll kick on and things will improve. They're a lot better than their league position shows. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, they're at the bottom of the table now," Jones told United Review ahead of the visit of Rovers on Saturday.

"I'm still a massive fan - as soon as we come off the pitch I always look to see how Blackburn have got on. I still have a lot of friends at the club.

"We won't find it easy, though. It's going to be tough. I know what sort of squad Blackburn have and there are some cracking players there. We can't take them lightly."
