Hughes: We're back on track

26 Feb 2007 - 10:38:26

Blackburn Rovers boss Mark Hughes was pleased to see his side get over their UEFA Cup exit last week by seeing off Portsmouth 3-0 at Ewood Park.

A goalless draw at home to Bayer Leverkusen ended Rovers' European dreams for this season, but victory over Pompey lifted their hopes of a return for next term.

Hughes said: "It was the perfect response because obviously there was a lot of disappointment surrounding the place on Thursday.

"After such a disappointing result, it is great to get a big win like this.

"We picked ourselves up and I think our performance served notice of our intent and that we are not prepared to let this season peter out.

"We have got a lot of big games coming up between now and the end of the season.

"It has been a difficult season, but now we are at the business end and we are still very much in the mix for a European place."
