Under-pressure Blackburn manager Steve Kean remains confident Rovers can turn around their season in the coming weeks.
Saturday's 1-0 defeat at home to Chelsea saw protests against his continued tenure for a fourth successive match at Ewood Park but the Rovers boss insists things will improve.
After the international break Blackburn travel to bottom-placed Wigan with other away games at Stoke, Sunderland, and home fixtures against Swansea, West Brom and Bolton, and Kean is targeting those six games to turn things around, telling the Lancashire Evening Telegraph: "This period is massive."
He added: "You look to the first phase of 10 games and it has been tough; I feel as though we should have another six points.
"Now we have got games against teams around us and if our levels are as high as they have been then I am convinced we will pick up points and by the time we get to halfway we will be in a much, much better position."
The Scot has won just six of his 32 Barclays Premier League matches in charge his side have just one victory this campaign.
