Darragh: We dug in and got the points

22 March 2016

Darragh Lenihan felt the side's hard work and togetherness really shone through in their 1-0 win over Brentford on Saturday.

Rovers had to play the majority of the second half with just ten men after Grant Hanley received his marching orders, but the lads put in a resolute display before Shane Duffy's stunner ensured all three points.

The midfielder was delighted with the team spirit shown, and was pleased to reward the travelling supporters with the win.

"It is unbelievable, it is a great feeling," said the Irishman. "To be ten men down and to put the effort in that we did it was just an amazing moment when Duffy put that ball in the net.

"To lose our captain and one of our main players was always going to be a big test, but we just dug in, we worked hard and stayed organised and luckily enough Duffy's finish was tremendous.

"In the last few minutes we just stuck together and hopefully we can show that team spirit for the following few weeks.

"It was one for the fans who travelled all the way down, not only for this game but the Ipswich game as well which was a disappointment, it was for them, they deserved that and the celebrations showed that."

Whilst others in the squad get a few days off ahead of the Preston game at Ewood on April 2nd, Lenihan is on international duty with the Republic of Ireland's Under-21s. They have UEFA qualifiers against Italy and Slovenia.
