Eric Black: Happy with clean sheet
Interim Blackburn manager Eric Black praised his defence for keeping a clean sheet in their dull goalless draw at Nottingham Forest.
Although he admits the game was anything but exciting, the point was gratefully accepted by Black who confirmed that he has not yet applied for the vacant manager's post at Ewood Park.
Speaking about the 0-0 draw, he said: "We've had two games in quick succession and it's been a case of going from one game to another.
"We had a new system tonight and the players deserve a lot of credit for that.
"We've conceded a lot of goals this season and we tried to do something about it.
"At the end of the night it was a very hard-working defensive performance even though it wasn't as exciting as it could have been."
As for who takes over from Steve Kean - who resigned last week - Black added: "I have not applied for the job yet but I have enjoyed taking it on.
"I've been told that I will be in charge on Saturday. The important thing at the moment is what happens to Blackburn Rovers because no matter who is manager, the club will be here in 10, 20 and 30 years."
