Dunn: Rovers to kick lumps

14 Aug 2009 - 09:43:28

Blackburn midfielder David Dunn has warned Manchester City that Rovers intend to 'kick lumps' out of them during Saturday's season opener.

City's expensively assembled new side travel to Ewood Park looking to get their season off to a strong start, but Dunn has warned that Blackburn will provide determined opposition.

The Eastlands club have spent over £100million on the likes of Emmanuel Adebayor, Gareth Barry, Roque Santa Cruz, Kolo Toure, and Carlos Tevez this summer.

"It's important we do our best and kick lumps out of them - fairly of course," he told the Daily Star.

"We have to be very strong and organised and the main thing is we will have to be really aggressive against them and knock them about a bit.

"That's what the manager will be asking from our lads. We have to make Ewood Park a place no-one wants to come to again.

"I think it is a good time to play City. Unfortunately we don't have the same resources.

"But what we do have is an even level on that pitch and as soon as the lads cross the white line the money doesn't really matter.

"It's about how much you want it."
