Kean wants more goals from Blackburn strikers

Blackburn Rovers boss Steve Kean is seeking more goals from his strikers next season.

He intends to stick with two strikers - but insists he will be looking for the forwards to contribute more goals in the coming campaign.

"The way we are trying to play now is to build on a solid defensive strategy by being dynamic and having pace in the wide areas," he told the Rovers website.

"I want us to play as much with two up front and fast-flowing football. If we can do that - and keep the back door shut - then I think we'll have the fans up on their feet.

"What we need to do now is make sure we get the goals at the right end of the pitch. That has been the thing that has been tough to come by.

"We didn't have any strikers in double figures, which made it difficult. The other areas chipped in, like Junior Hoilett, Brett Emerton and Martin Olsson.

"We ended the season playing well - getting seven positive results in our last nine games. We'll now try to hit the ground running when we return for pre-season in July."
