Steve Kean claims Blackburn are a club on the up after climbing out of the relegation zone for the first time since September.
And even with top scorer Yakubu suspended, Kean is confident Rovers can win at Everton on Saturday.
They have scored in every away league game this season and picked up a draw at Anfield before stunning champions Manchester United with a 3-2 win at Old Trafford last month.
Kean said: "I feel as though we are on the up, scoring goals and with people like Paul Robinson coming back into the side and Scott Dann has had a full week of training.
"All of a sudden there is a competition for places that can only be good.
"We have scored in every away league game this season so we should be able to go to Everton and get a result.
"David Moyes has done an absolutely fantastic job over the years on a small budget, and their gritty determination to get results means it is always a tough place to go.
"I know he has a couple of injury problems at the moment and he's going to have to deal with that but I'm sure he will put out a side that's competitive and hard to break down.
"But I feel we are on the up and are capable of going there and getting another good result."
Talisman Yakubu is serving a three-match ban for a studs-up challenge on Danny Murphy last Saturday.
Kean says they considered appealing against the decision but opted not to in case the FA decided to extend the ban.
He added: "The Yak will be a big loss.
"We all know that he is not a nasty player who is not going to leave his foot in deliberately on anyone but you can't say 'will you take his red card away because he is a nice guy'.
"By the letter of the law it was a red card and we have to accept that - if we appealed there was a danger they could add a game on."
