Roberts: Allardyce good for Blackburn

Blackburn Rovers striker Jason Roberts says manager Sam Allardyce's arrival has been positive for the club.

"Under Sam our record is good as, apart from Saturday, we have only lost against the top four," he told the Professional Footballers' Association website.

"The gaffer has managed at this level for a long time and he is very well organised and knows his stuff.

"We seem to be back on form under the new gaffer and if we carried on like that over the course of a season then I don't think we will have too many issues over staying up.

"It is a very tough league but if we remain focused then we will be all right. It is about us going out and doing it on a match day."
