Brad Friedel and Robbie Savage's row did not trouble Rovers boss Mark Hughes.Blackburn boss Mark Hughes has played down the confrontational incident between Brad Friedel and Robbie Savage in the game against West Ham last Saturday.
The Rovers keeper responded to his team-mate's angry criticism by rushing out of goal and screaming right back at him, but Hughes insists it shows how much the players care about the team.
"That wasn't a problem. I took quite a lot of amusement from that little episode," he laughed.
"It's just one of those little things that happens time and again in training and in games."
Hughes was also delighted with the attitude his side showed in coming from behind to defeat The Hammers 3-2.
"West Ham are playing very well this year so we did well to come from behind. I think it was the desire and belief that helped us to turn the game around in the end," he explained.
This weekend Blackburn travel to Craven Cottage to take on Fulham, and the Welshman is confident that they can keep up their encouraging form.
"I think we have a good opportunity to win. We played them at Ewood Park and played exceptionally well. If we can get to that standard again I think it will be a difficult game for Fulham."
