Take Saturday's disappointment out on Villa

25 April 2017

Darragh Lenihan admitted he was hugely frustrated not to have taken all three points against Wolves on Saturday.

The Rovers defender made a welcome return to the starting eleven after a quick recovery from an ankle injury, and whilst he played his part in a strong display at the back, he was disappointed they weren't able to make the most of the opportunities that came their way in front of goal.

"It is obviously disappointing not to score," Lenihan told Rovers PlayerHD. "We dominated with possession but it was just that final touch we were missing today.

"We kept knocking on the door but to be fair Wolves defended well.

"It is extremely frustrating not to have taken the three points, we dominated for such long periods in the match, and when the other results came in they didn't go our way."

Lenihan came as close as anyone at Molineux in getting on the scoresheet with an early header that flashed just wide, but he has vowed to do his best in the final two games of the season to get the points that hopefully will lead to Championship survival.

"I just chanced my arm and just ran to the front post, but to be honest I'm a bit disappointed I should have probably hit the target," he added.

"We've two massive games left and in this league anyone can beat anyone, that is the beauty about the Championship. We're at home against Aston Villa, we're looking to get the three points.

"It is a massive game and we need to win to build momentum for the final game, so we are looking to use home advantage as best we can and hopefully do the best we can."
