Blackburn Rovers can win the Premiership title this season, insists Roque Santa Cruz.

After their victory over Reading, the Paraguay ace declared: "Everything is possible in football if the determination is big enough in the team.

"We are willing to give it a try and will do everything we can to make it happen.

"I have read a little bit about Shearer and Sutton. Shearer, in particular, is a great player and I used to like him very much. It's great to be compared to that sort of player.

"But it is no good talking about being like them until we have won a cup. Fans remember the players who win trophies, not just who scores lots of goals.

"Everybody wants to win something this year, and the Premier League is the most important one."
