Blackburn captain Ryan Nelsen is relishing Rovers' upcoming tie against Chelsea despite the club's dip in form.
Despite a promising start to the season, Blackburn have been struggling to pick up points in their recent outings, taking just five from a possible 15 which has seen them slump to ninth in the table.
But Nelsen is confident his side can regain their early league form and grind to a halt what he calls "the domino effect" against the Blues on Sunday.
"Chelsea is the perfect game for us," said Nelsen. "We are on TV for everyone to show what we are really about.
"The tougher the obstacle the better it is for these guys, especially when you go into a bad run because you want to prove to everybody and yourself that you can steady the ship and get on with it."
Player errors seem to be the root of Blackburn's problems but Nelsen insists his side are working hard at ironing out the creases to make the team work better.
"It is a funny thing, it is not like teams are coming for us or playing way better football - it is just we are giving away awfully soft goals and killing ourselves," added Nelsen.
"We were so tight for 15 games and then for the last seven or eight we have been disappointing.
"It is just soft, individual errors. Generally it is a domino effect when a goal goes in. Normally a little mistake which leads to another and another.
"We have got to take care of those little mistakes and it will correct itself."
Change in fortune
Without a win in their last three outings, Blackburn are in need of a change of fortune but they will not find it easy against Chelsea, who will be looking to make up some ground after a disappointing loss to league leaders Arsenal last weekend.
Nelsen says his side cannot sit back and that they must push Chelsea all the way if they are to take anything from the game.
"By half-time we have to throw caution to the wind and really go for games instead of being in control of games where we can sit them out," he added.
"We are having to find energy from places and really go to try to push on."
