Rovers have struggled for form all season and fans have pointed the finger of blame in Kean's direction, with regular protests calling for the manager to be sacked. He has retained the support of owners Venky's and the 4-2 Premier League victory over Swansea earlier this month boosted the club's position in their battle against relegation. However, Blackburn were defeated by Sunderland last weekend and their latest loss on Saturday has fuelled fresh reports that Kean's days in the job could be numbered. He maintains that he still has a lot of backing and will not walk away, although he accepts that results must improve ahead of Tuesday's vital bottom-of-the-table clash with Bolton. "I don't need to switch off and I don't feel the need to run away from anything," said Kean. "I have had massive support from a lot of people because they know what a young side we are. "It's different if you have a very experienced team in a situation we are in, but we have eight or nine players under 23. "I need to get points, though, and I'm under no illusion my job is based on being in a much better position than we are now. "I'll make sure I prepare the team right for Bolton on Tuesday because, if it wasn't a big match before, it's massive now." Kean remains convinced that Blackburn will turn the corner, and he says a good run of form will put the supporters back on side. "I've never felt I can't win the fans round," he said. "I always feel we are about to go on an unbeaten run."
