Martin Olsson feels Blackburn may have to ditch their footballing philosophy and start grinding out results.
Rovers were renowned for their direct approach under former boss Sam Allardyce, but changed their ways once Steve Kean took the reins.
Unfortunately for him, an approach which may be pleasing on the eye has done little for the club's efforts to remain in the Premier League.
An alarming dip in form has dropped them into basement battle and every point from here on in will be priceless.
With that in mind, Olsson believes now is the time for Rovers to dig deep and start putting substance over style.
The versatile Swede said: "Keano is a different kind of manager, he likes to play the ball on the ground with lots of one-touch, two-touch football.
"It was different to Sam but we have to get used to that and it has been going well on the pitch but we haven't got the points we wanted.
"To be honest now is not the time to play attractive football, it's about getting points and digging in. Even if we do long balls, I don't really care how we play so long as we get the points."
Kean has come in for criticism after struggling to bring the best out of Blackburn, but Olsson believes the players have to shoulder much of the responsibility for the club's serious slump.
He added: "You can't blame it all on him, we players have to do our job as well.
"But we know the situation we are in and if we just keep playing with confidence I can't see us going down.
"We have been playing some great football at times but some decisions haven't gone our way and we've been a bit unlucky as well.
"We haven't even thought about relegation, we're strong mentally and cannot even think about the negatives. We've been in the Premier League for a long time and it's not going to happen that we're going to go down now."
