Nelsen reckons Blackburn under achieved this campaign

Blackburn Rovers skipper Ryan Nelsen reckons they could have done better this season. He particularly points to Rovers' poor away form; they have secured just two Premier League wins on the road.

But the New Zealand international insisted: "The aim is still the top 10. The Premier League is cut-throat but we have two games to redeem ourselves starting with Arsenal at Ewood Park.

"The result here shows the reality of the Premier League. If you don't put away your chances they will come back and bite you.

"Away from home we just seem to lack the cutting edge. Their goal was one lapse in concentration. They (Wolves) had a free header and they scored. It's the story of our season.

"I just managed to get one of my knobbly knees on to the ball to score."
