Blackburn goalkeeper Paul Robinson has backed the club to stay in the Premier League, despite their defeat at relegation rivals Bolton at the weekend.
Rovers are currently sitting in 16th position in the top flight, with just eight games of the season remaining.
Steve Kean's side have been in fine form of late taking seven points from their previous three games, before their 2-1 weekend loss against a determined Trotters side.
And although Rovers take on title challengers Manchester United in their next match on Monday night, the 32-year-old is confident of their survival chances.
"To perform the way we did in the first half, we let ourselves down and we let the fans down," he told Rovers player.
"We had a great following. It was fantastic to run out and see the whole end behind the goal full and in the first half we let everyone including ourselves down.
"We're three points ahead of the bottom three and two points clear of the team below us so I think we would have taken that before the last few games.
"But we're obviously disappointed because we could have extended that gap. We just leave ourselves with a job still to do.
"We all knew there was a job still to do but I think we could have gone a long way towards doing it on Saturday. It was a missed opportunity.
"We're in pole position at the moment and we've got to keep it that way."
