Rovers target Intertoto

24 Feb 2007 - 10:43:36

Blackburn Rovers manager Mark Hughes has confirmed that his club will enter the Intertoto Cup in a bid to return to European football next season.

Rovers were knocked out of the UEFA Cup this week by Bayer Leverkusen, with Hughes already eyeing a route back into Europe next term.

He said: "Most clubs are looking at the competition as a decent option.

"They changed the format this season and it is a more attractive proposition. More and more clubs will see the Intertoto as a way into Europe."

Rovers are currently 11th in the Premiership table and face an uphill task to force their way into the UEFA Cup reckoning in the coming months.
