Angry Ince refutes Wilkins 'aggressive' accusations

Chelsea's win at Blackburn ended in a war of words after Rovers boss Paul Ince confronted Ray Wilkins and accused the Blues assistant manager of talking ''garbage''.

Ince had been incensed by Wilkins' remarks in the build-up that Blackburn were aggressive and over-physical, and he made his feelings clear in a heated exchange at the final whistle.

The incident overshadowed Chelsea's 2-0 victory, courtesy of two Nicolas Anelka goals, which sent the Londoners back to the top of the table.

Ince said: ''Of course I was a physical character as a player but you don't play for the teams I did if you are just that. All the teams I have managed have played football.

''For him to come out with that garbage about us trying to put them on their a***s and that we are over-physical - well we weren't like that today, we played some decent football.

''I just said to him next time you are going to say something make sure you get your facts right. I told him that in no uncertain terms.''

Wilkins had said the match would be ''one of aggression'' because Blackburn played in the image of their manager.

Ince argued that Blackburn were the better team in the second half and were ''a bit unlucky'', but the fact they were not several goals down at the break was due solely to goalkeeper Paul Robinson, who could now be contemplating an England recall.

Ince added: ''The performance of my 'keeper was fantastic, as far as I am concerned he's back to his best.

''There was an element of luck to both their goals and in the second half we really took the game to them and were by far the better team.''

Chelsea's first goal came after Jose Bosingwa's long-range shot hit Anelka and deflected in.

''Their first goal killed us really - I don't know if it hit his hand or his side but we have had no luck at all this season,'' added Ince.

Wilkins himself said the Chelsea players had proved a point after the midweek defeat by Roma, and did well in testing conditions of driving rain.

He said: ''A lot of people would have said we might slip up today especially when they saw the conditions so there was a lot of pride in this performance.''

Victory was achieved without Didier Drogba even making the trip from London - Wilkins said the striker was still not feeling 100% as he continues to recover from a knee injury.

Anelka, once again, made light of Drogba's absence, and Wilkins added: ''He's doing a fantastic job and had it not been for Paul Robinson he would have got his second league hat-trick on the spin.

''It's not his game to play up there on his own but he has worked very hard.''
