Steve Kean tells his players to remain confident ahead of their showdown at the Emirates Stadium.

Steve Kean has urged his Blackburn Rovers side to take a confident approach to their trip to Arsenal this weekend.

Blackburn, who suffered a home defeat to Newcastle in midweek, haven't lost on the road in the Premier League in almost two months, during which time the club has travelled to both Liverpool and Manchester United.

"Our away performances have been good of late," he said. "I think we can go down to Arsenal with plenty of confidence.

"It is never easy when you go to a club like Arsenal. You have to be on your guard because of the pace in which they attack, the way that they can dominate possession.

"But you can see the way the lads are playing, the confidence they show when they are on the ball. We are controlling games and creating chances. We have to continue to do that."

Blackburn beat Arsenal 4-3 earlier this season in the reverse fixture at Ewood Park.
