Blackburn boss Allardyce feeling good about current squad

Blackburn Rovers boss Sam Allardyce admits he's feeling comfortable about his current squad.

Rovers earned an impressive 0-0 draw with Liverpool on Saturday.

And Allardyce said: "I think I have been calmer for a few years than in my early years in the Premier League.

"Scrimping and scraping trying to keep your side up is a traumatic period you go through because every game you try and shift the furniture to stop the opposition players who are better than yours.

"Now, we are getting to the stage here where we are saying we are a good match for anyone we play, especially at Ewood Park, and that gives you more comfort when you start a game that we are a match for anyone.

"We were a match for Liverpool and Chelsea over the last week and in my entire time here we have only had two defeats in nearly 12 months and 23 matches. That is a terrific record and one we must cherish and keep for as long as possible."
