Blackburn Rovers manager Mark Hughes has defended they way his side played against league leaders Chelsea on Wednesday evening.

Blues boss Jose Mourinho was unhappy with the home side's aggressive style that saw Arjen Robben hobble out of the contest following a challenge by Aaron Mokoena.

However, Hughes feels the Portuguese tactician was making excuses for his side failing to live up to expectations and was happy with how his charges accounted themselves.

yet under more stick


Blackburn boss Mark Hughes has expressed his disappointment at comments made by Nigel Worthington about the bullying nature of Rovers' play.

Norwich boss Worthington suggested he would be asking his team to stand up to any hard tackles from Blackburn ahead of the weekend's game between the two.

However, Hughes believes that Worthington has been influenced by unfair labels, stemming from the recent 1-0 defeat to Chelsea.

Blackburn are quite a physical side and with Robbie Savage now its not surprising they are getting that reputation. I don't think they are that physical, just hardworking and battling to get some points. If they can hustle there way out of trouble by getting a bit physical then there's nothing wrong with that.
