Blackburn defender Danny Simpson has hailed Sam Allardyce's influence since he took over at Ewood Park.
Allardyce remains unbeaten in the four games he has taken charge of after replacing Paul Ince at the helm last month.
Simpson, who is on loan at Blackburn from Manchester United, has been impressed by the impact made by Allardyce in such a short space of time.
"He has just brought in his own ideas on the training pitch, and everyone has taken it on board," said Simpson.
Aura"He has got an aura about him. Everyone listens to him and respects him.
"Things are just clicking on the training ground, and from the training ground, it is carrying on to the pitch on a Saturday.
"We have always said we were a team that should be doing well, and now we are doing well and hopefully we will take that into the game [at Fulham] on Saturday."
