Scott Dann: Keen to build on last weekend's win

Dann believes performances have improved during their last two outings and says that has to continue when Sean O'Driscoll's side visit Ewood Park.

Despite being 10 points adrift of the play-off places, the former Birmingham man believes they can still make a late charge up the table.

"Obviously we are disappointed where we are in the league but I think with the new manager coming in it has given us a little bit of a boost," he told the club's official website.

"Against Charlton we never showed what we were capable of and we didn't really play very well but we put that right against Brighton albeit we were a bit unlucky near the end.

"I think against Derby we showed what we are capable of and we need to keep that up and start picking up more points.

"I think we are still 10 points off but you never know in this league, that is what we'll be aiming for from now until the end of the season. In the next couple of games we've got to be picking up maximum points and we'll be doing our upmost to do that."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
