Sam still seeks consistency

Sam Allardyce has demanded more consistency from his Blackburn Rovers side after they picked up three more vital points following a narrow victory over Hull City.

Rovers sneaked up to 11th place in the Premier League table after a 1-0 win over ten-man opposition at Ewood Park on Wednesday night.

Martin Olsson's first league goal brought about a first win in three games for an inconsistent Blackburn side who still concern Allardyce.

Referring to the 3-0 defeat at Stoke last weekend, he said:"I don't want any more shocks like Stoke City, not dips in performances like that. Hopefully we can pick up more points as quickly as possible.

"We have some big teams to come here later on so we want to get the points in the bag as quickly as we can and then, when the big teams come, they are bonus points.

"I don't like the bad performances, they are too bad when we have them. That is my problem.

"We are only, with our finances able to afford certain players, so maybe I am over critical at times, but I am always searching for perfection.

"I never let something like that go past without telling the lads what they have done wrong.

"I am constantly moaning and groaning and hopefully that keeps the lads on their toes and makes them more consistent."
