Blackburn star says struggle is taking its toll

Steven N'Zonzi admits Blackburn's bad run of luck is starting to take its toll.

Struggling Rovers believe they are putting in decent performances and not getting results -with some refereeing decisions going against them.

Never more so than when N'Zonzi was harshly adjudged to have handled the ball to give away a stoppage time penalty that Norwich netted to grab a draw last month.

And the giant Frenchman concedes Rovers recent lack of wins is grinding down the players self-belief.

He said: ``It is difficult to keep the confidence high because we are playing well but not getting the wins.

``In the mind it is quite hard but we have to keep believing. We are working hard in training and in games and we are all trying our hardest.

``What more can you do? We are trying to do more but we just hope the luck will be with us.

``I think we are close to getting some good results. If we keep going as we are I think we will get results because the luck is not with us at the moment.

``It is really difficult and frustrating because we are playing well against the big teams but we are losing because we concede one goal too many - that is frustrating.

``Sometimes in football you don’t get the luck but you have to keep going.”

Rovers have a chance to snatch only a second win of the season at rock-bottom Wigan today.

And with clashes against Sunderland, Bolton and West Brom coming up before Christmas, N'Zonzi is already pinpointing Blackburn's must-win matches.

He said: ``We are going to have win the games coming up.

``We have three games against teams who are in the second part of the league and they are very important to us.

``We are going to have win because that is very important to us. The key is we have to keep believing and keep our heads up.''
