Seniors on show at Ewood in U21 match against West Ham

14 September 2015

Darragh Lenihan and Simon Eastwood will both get a runout for the Under-21s in this evening's Ewood Park clash with West Ham United.

First team opportunities have been limited for the pair this season so they'll get some much-need minutes under their belts in tonight's league match.

Sacha Petshi is also named in the squad for the game against the Hammers, whilst Anton Forrester returns up front.

Damien Johnson's side will be looking to continue their good form after progressing in the Lancashire Senior Cup six days ago.

The development squad put on an impressive showing in their penalty shootout win over Barrow and will be eager to do the same under the lights at Ewood.

There'll also be a familiar face amongst the opposition ranks as Doneil Henry, who enjoyed a brief, yet successful, loan spell with Rovers last season, is named in the West Ham starting XI.

Season ticket holders can see this evening's game for free on production of their season ticket card.

The Jack Walker lower tier will be open for tonight's match, kick-off is at 7.00pm.

ROVERS: Eastwood, Nyambe, Doyle, Petshi, Lenihan, Wharton, Mahoney, Carson (c), Forrester, Green, Cham.

Subs: Lavelle, Crump, Thomson, Tomlinson, Rittenberg.

WEST HAM: Brown, Knoyle, Hendrie, Dobson, Henry, Onariase, Samuelsen, Cullen, Lee, Browne, Parfitt-Williams.
