Liverpool midfielder Elliott urges Blackburn fans to stick with them

Liverpool midfielder Harvey Elliot has urged Blackburn Rovers fans to stick with them.

Elliott scored his fifth goal in a Blackburn shirt in the Championship clash with Watford at Ewood Park on Wednesday night.

However, the 17-year-old ended up on the losing side as the promotion-chasing Hornets ultimately ran out 3-2 winners.

“There were some good bits throughout the game and we never gave up as a team," the teenager told iFollow Rovers.

“The desire and hunger to try and get back into the game was there, but the mistakes and switching off at times did knock us.

“There were positives and hopefully we can put things right in the next game.

“We need to have that hunger and spirit from kick-off and be at it straight away.

“We need to keep that up throughout the game and not switch off in vital situations.

“Everyone can see there were positives, we just have to snap the mistakes out and keep that togetherness we have.

“We're fighting for each other and we will keep fighting to put things right for not just ourselves and the staff, but for the fans at home as well.

“We feel their frustrations because it's not nice losing games.

“So we need to stay together and keep pushing forward."
