Blackburn boss Hughes confident of progress after MyPa win

Blackburn boss Mark Hughes is convinced they have all but secured their passage into the first round proper of the Uefa Cup, with the second leg to come in a fortnight at Ewood Park.

Paraguay striker Santa Cruz got the winner in the 1-0 victory against MyPa in the second qualifying round of the UEFA Cup.

Hughes said: "We have won the game and not conceded so we are in good shape for the second leg.

"We had 12 shots on goal, which tells its own story, and perhaps we should have won by a bigger margin.

"But we are in good shape for the second leg and I am reasonably pleased.

"MyPa showed a lot of energy and commitment and have to be congratulated on their attitude."
