Blackburn boss Allardyce calls for clean sheets

Blackburn Rovers manager Sam Allardyce has urged his players to start producing more clean sheets.

Following their opening day 1-0 win over Everton, the Lancashire club have copped at least goal in every game and their boss wants things to shore up in defence, starting this weekend at Blackpool.

"Whilst we haven't been doing too bad, it's been a long time since we won a game," Allardyce said.

"The only way for us to get back to winning ways is to go to Blackpool and not concede a goal.

"We will then have the opportunity to win the game. Whether we take it or not is a different matter.

"Only one clean sheet in seven outings is something which has stopped us winning matches.

"The more it goes on, the more it saps confidence."
