Blackburn must improve home form - Pedersen

Blackburn winger Morten Gamst Pedersen reckons Rovers need to make some home improvements if they are to qualify for Europe.

Ewood Park has not been the happiest of hunting grounds for Mark Hughes' side so far this term, despite their lofty position in the Premier League table.

Of the 19 games Rovers have played at home in all competitions, they have won nine, drawn five and lost five.

In the Premier League, Rovers have mustered just five wins at their Ewood HQ - the last of which came on January 2 when Sunderland were defeated 1-0.

Pedersen told the Lancashire Evening Telegraph: "We have to be better at home. We stayed in a hotel (before the Everton game) - I don't know if it's something we'll do every week. It was the first time we've done it. Whether we'll do it again I don't know.

"Our home form has not been great so the manager thought he'd try something different and we didn't lose so we'll see if we do it again.

"We are still in the hunt for Europe. We went seven games unbeaten (recently) and we need to carry on that form."
