Blackburn winger Craig Conway insists his side must improve how they begin matches if they are to turn their poor start to the campaign around.

Rovers have conceded the first goal in all but one of their six Championship matches so far this season with Sunday’s 2-1 defeat to Fulham continuing their winless start to the campaign.

Blackburn fell 2-0 behind against the Cottagers and Scotland international Conway admits that he is clueless as to why the team are starting matches too slowly, but he confirmed that everyone at the club is working hard to reverse the trend.

He said: “We’ve gone 2-0 down and given ourselves an uphill task. Can I put a finger on why? I can’t. If it was that easy, it wouldn’t happen. We’ve just got to keep working hard and hopefully we can score the first goal and we can put the onus on the other team for a change.”

Gary Bowyer’s side currently occupy one of the division’s relegation places after picking up just three points so far this campaign and they face a tough test when they return to the capital to take on Queens Park Rangers in their next league match on Wednesday.

Conway insists, however, that the Lancashire club still have plenty of time to turn their season around and he is hopeful they will return to winning ways as soon as possible.

He continued: “We’ve got to remember it’s a long, long season but at the end of the day you want to win as many games as you can and hopefully that win will come sooner rather than later.”

Rovers are outsiders at 3.80 to come away from Loftus Road with all three points, with the hosts available 2.05 and the draw 3.50.
