Warnock hails Givet influence on improving Blackburn

Stephen Warnock has hailed the form of on-loan Marseille defender Gael Givet in Blackburn Rovers' improved results.

He said: "I think you can't single out just one or two defenders when you talk about the last few weeks. They have all been immense.

"Gael Givet has come in and you would not even realise he has only been here for a few weeks. He has been fantastic and Andre Ooijer has been fantastic.

"The back four are very hard to break down and we know that. Having played in midfield myself it is sometimes the midfield that has let the back four down and the forwards as well.

"In the early part of the season we were not working as team but we have looked at that and know we can put that right. I think we have all taken far more responsibility for what happens both in defence and going forward."
