Albion keeper has had highs and lows facing Rovers

The Argus: Tomasz Kuszczak has mixed memories of Ewood Park Tomasz Kuszczak has mixed memories of Ewood Park

ALBION goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak has mixed memories of playing Blackburn at Ewood Park.

Poland international Kuszczak was in the United side that won their 12th Premier League title with a 1-1 draw away to Blackburn on May 14, 2011.

But Kuszczak was heavily criticised for his performance in that game and never played for United again.

The 30-year-old still believes he was harshly treated at the time but is looking forward to returning to Lancashire with an Albion side bidding for their first win in five matches.

Kuszczak said: “My last game in the Premier League was against Blackburn. We drew 1-1. It was the last game I played for Manchester United.

“There was a lot of criticism on my shoulders after this game. I don’t know whether it was right or not.

“It wasn’t a really bad game for me, there were a few situations where I should maybe have behaved a little differently and have taken different decisions. “But we drew the game and we won the league which was the most important thing and I was really glad.

“I was surprised by the criticism of me but it was a time of much speculation of who was going to replace Edwin van der Sar and maybe this was the reason to officially show it was not going to be me.”

Albion have drawn their last three games but Kuszczak says they will not be settling for a point away to a Blackburn side who were in the Premier League last season.

He said: “We are in a situation where we want to win desperately, we want three points each game, it doesn’t matter whether we are home or away and we are really close but it is not working for us at the moment.

“The most important thing is we are creating chances. I think this will change and we are going to catch great form because we are creating a lot.”
