Consistency counts for Allardyce

David Dunn's nerveless 89th-minute penalty clinched a superb come-from-behind win for 10-man Blackburn at Ewood Park and boss Sam Allardyce insists consistency is the key to more success.[LNB]Dunn swept home past his former Rovers team-mate Brad Friedel after Richard Dunne handled in the box, earning the three points despite Vince Grella's 68th-minute red card for two bookable offences. Christopher Samba had put the hosts on level terms in the first half.[LNB]The manner of the win, with the home side clawing back from the shock of conceding a third minute opener to Gabriel Agbonlahor, convinced Allardyce his side has what it takes to climb the table.[LNB]"We've burst all the odds and it shows the determination of our squad and the quality of our team," said a visibly delighted Allardyce. "Now what we have to do is hit those consistent performances.[LNB]"I'm delighted with the way we kicked on after going a goal down in the first few minutes. It really only knocked us back for a few minutes. We came storming back and we got what we deserved."
