Martin Olsson has said he is confident Blackburn can turn things around despite being rooted to the foot of the Premier League table.[LNB] Blackburn have picked up just five points so far this season and take on Tottenham , who currently sit in sixth, this Sunday. [LNB]The Rovers stopper has admitted their lowly position is difficult to take but believes they can recover and begin to climb the table. [LNB]"You can't ignore the league table because you have to be realistic and know that you are in a bad position," he told Lancashire Telegraph. [LNB]"We know it is important to pick up points but if we play like we did at QPR then we can pick these points up. We know that."[LNB]It has been a turbulent start to the season for the Lancashire club who have finished as high as 10th in recent campaigns. [LNB]"That is the reality of football though and we have to think positive and work hard together as a team. That is the way we will get out of it," Olsson said.[LNB]"We are all hurting. It is not that we want to be down there.[LNB]"We are trying our best in training every day. We think we have been unlucky but hopefully we can start picking up points." [LNB]Olsson had mixed feelings about Saturday's draw against QPR as Rovers squandered a couple of late chances to come away with three points.[LNB]"We played some good football at times and with the chances we created we could have got the three points," he said.
