Influential defender Johnson headed the second-half equaliser in a 1-1 draw against Rovers - Saunders' first game since taking charge of the club.

It followed a run of three successive Championship defeats over the festive period and an FA Cup exit at non-league Luton which ultimately cost Stale Solbakken his job.

Johnson told the club's official website: "Results haven't gone our way recently - we've had a change of manager and finally we've got half a result with the draw against Blackburn.

"It was key to end the run of defeats and hopefully now things are looking up.

"The fans have got behind the new manager and we've had a difference in style of play going a bit more direct.

"It's not that we didn't want it to work with Stale but now we've got a totally different approach and it's getting in people's faces and hopefully this will be successful."

He continued: "We just maybe need a bit of confidence to get that win and then you can go on runs in this league of six or seven unbeaten."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

F365's Transfer Guide - Part One

I

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
