Blackburn Rovers boss Steve Kean targets defensive solidarity.

Blackburn Rovers boss Steve Kean believes that his side's defensive form will play a major role in their battle against relegation from the Premier League.

Rovers sit 18th in the league table following four successive league defeats, the latest coming against Liverpool on Tuesday.

"We need to go into every game looking to improve, certainly on set plays because we look as if we can score on a set play at almost every opportunity but are looking a bit wobbly when set plays come into our box," Kean told The Mirror.

"We will be looking at when we have got a set play we need to be more solid behind it so we can't get done on the counter-attack.

"But we can't go into games thinking we need to score four or five goals to win, we need to close the back door and defend better - it is as simple as that."

Rovers face Swansea in the Premier League on Saturday.
