Dunn: Believes supporters should be getting behind Kean
David Dunn has expressed his disappointment at the Blackburn supporters leading the protests against manager Steve Kean.
Rovers boss Kean has come in for mounting criticism over recent weeks after seeing results in the Premier League take an alarming dip.
A 4-0 reversal against Manchester City on Saturday led many fans to stay in their seats at the final whistle and vent their anger towards the current coaching staff.
The scenes at Ewood Park were nothing new, with the protests against Kean having gathered pace since the start of the season.
The Rovers players remain fully behind their boss and Dunn believes the club's followers should do the same.
"It was disappointing," the midfielder told the Lancashire Telegraph when asked to give his take on the events which followed the weekend defeat to City.
"If you had asked the fans before the season would they have taken four points from Fulham and Newcastle away and Arsenal and Manchester City at home, many would say yes.
"Going further back, if we had converted our two penalties against Everton we would be sat 11th or 12th with probably not much being said.
"The booing and jeering doesn't help anyone. From a players' point of view, we see the hard work the manager and staff do so it is disappointing to see the reaction.
"I am hoping it is just a minority. I heard the guys that are leading the protest on the radio and it is poor. To be leading protests is poor."
