An easy decision to come back

Doneil Henry could be set for his second debut for Rovers on Saturday, against the side he made his first one against - Sheffield Wednesday.

The Canadian international joined Rovers last March and was immediately thrown in the away match at Hillsborough, playing his part in a 2-1 win over the Yorkshire club, but unfortunately a hamstring injury cut short his spell at the club after just three games.

Now after re-signing on loan until the turn of the year, the defender has been welcomed back by his team-mates and he is looking forward to putting on the blue and white shirt once more.

"I'm happy to be back and I'm hoping to get some games and to help the club achieve good things this year," said Henry.

"There were other teams interested but I kind of waited because I knew if this one was possible it’d be a no-brainer to come back.

"From the day I came here to play Sheffield Wednesday, coming right into the team, the guys were great. They made me feel so welcome, so it was an easy decision to come back.

"Even though I did get injured, I left with good encouragement, and after coming back I've been welcomed right away."

The 22-year-old has also been delighted with the reception he's had from the fans, both when he visited Ewood last season in the FA Cup replay against Liverpool, and following the news that he was re-joining the club.

He added: "The fans have been great with me, I saw it when I was invited to back to watch the Liverpool match last season.

"The means a lot to see the fans supporting, and being told about how the fans reacted, I'm really thankful for their support.

"We got a result the last time we played them away and I'm hoping we can get a result again and that I can be part of the team.

"If we can go out there on Saturday and do the things that we have been in training all week then I feel like we should have a good chance of taking those three points."
