Blackburn boss Hughes: Roque will score goals

Hughes said: “All strikers who come here score goals and we’re convinced that Roque will as well.

“We have great quality in wide areas. If we can continue to produce quality balls into the box, then the strikers will benefit.

“Benni and the other strikers benefited last year from the work of Morten and David and we hope Roque’s going to.

“Roque comes here with a point to prove because people are questioning him before he’s even kicked a ball — but I think he’ll prove everyone wrong.

“The squad has been excited by his arrival and hopefully that will have a positive effect on us.”
