Paul Robinson believes Blackburn should be encouraged by their performance in the 2-0 defeat to Chelsea.

The Blues secured victory thanks to a brace from Nicolas Anelka and could have been more emphatic winners had Robinson not made a number of excellent saves.

However, Rovers also battled hard in the second half and carved out a few opportunities to trouble Chelsea.

Robinson was pleased with the improved performance and does not feel there was much to choose between the sides.

"We are pleased with the way we played in the second half, I think we did a lot better," he told Radio Rovers.

"We took the game to them, we created a few chances.

"If we play like we did in the second half against a lot of teams we'll get results, but they are a class outfit and I think their finishing was the difference."

Confident

The result left Blackburn 15th in the Premier League table and without a win in their last six matches, but Robinson is confident things will change.

"We know we are playing reasonably well," he explained.

"There are games where we haven't played as well as we'd like to, but like with the second half display we can take a lot of positives from that.

"There are winnable games coming up and we need to start picking up some points now.

"We are a little bit disappointed but we can take some positives out of our second half performance."
