Paul Robinson is convinced Blackburn are still in a good position to stay in the Premier League despite their 2-1 defeat to Bolton.
However, the Rovers goalkeeper has warned his team-mates that they can ill afford a repeat of Saturday's below par showing again between now and the end of the season.
Robinson dubbed their display against one of their relegation rivals as a 'Jekyll and Hyde' effort which let down the 5,000 fans who made the short trip to the Reebok Stadium, particularly after the side's recent improvement.
Despite the setback, he remains confident about their survival chances as the team are currently in 16th place and have eight games left to play, starting with a clash against leaders Manchester United.
The Blackburn skipper told Rovers player: "To perform the way we did in the first half, we let ourselves down and we let the fans down.
"We had a great following. It was fantastic to run out and see the whole end behind the goal full and in the first half we let everyone including ourselves down.
"We're three points ahead of the bottom three and two points clear of the team below us so I think we would have taken that before the last few games.
"But we're obviously disappointed because we could have extended that gap. We just leave ourselves with a job still to do.
"We're in pole position at the moment and we've got to keep it that way."
