Talking targets

2 April 2016

Shane Duffy is targeting more wins, more goals, and more clean sheets between now and the end of the season.

The Rovers defender, who grabbed the winning goal in emphatic fashion in the 1-0 victory over Brentford a fortnight ago, is eager to get on the scoresheet more often in the eight games remaining, but as long as it leads to three points.

Duffy, who earned his second cap for Ireland during the internationals, believes Rovers can go into this afternoon's Lancashire derby with Preston full of confidence, and hopes to be able to carry that through to the end of the campaign.

"Scoring against Brentford was an enjoyable moment for me and with the confidence from it hopefully I can get a few more goals and a few more clean sheets before the end of the season," said the Irishman.

"I should have more goals, so I'd be happy with two or three more goals and to win every game.

"You've got to aim like that because that is the highest you can get. There'll be some games where you can't win them all, but you've got to take it in your stride and try to win every game and see what happens.

"I think all the lads are just looking forward to getting back out there on Saturday now there's been a break and a big derby game.

"With how well they have done this year in the league it is going to be a tough game, but the result we had against Brentford in our last game can only help our confidence.

"So hopefully, with the atmosphere it will make for a good game and I'm looking forward to it.

"I think we are a better team than we were when we played them last time. The signings that have been brought in have improved us.

"I think we've got a lot more creative players in our team with the likes of Jordi Gomez and Tony Watt who can create, and then there's Danny up front who is a different striker to what Jordan was.

"We seem to be attacking a lot more and creating a lot more chances. So hopefully we can get the three points for the fans."
