Darragh: We need to build on Saturday's point

23 January 2017

Whilst disappointed that Rovers weren't able to claim the victory, Darragh Lenihan believed it was a good point to claim in Saturday's draw with Birmingham City.

On his 50th league appearance, the Irish international felt that the side showed good character to come back from the shock of going behind so early through a third minute penalty. Getting back on level terms on the stroke of half-time when Danny Graham finished off a fine team move.

"Obviously it was disappointing to get the draw but we need to just build on from this," the defender told Radio Rovers.

"We had a good few chances but so did they, but I'll take the point. Last week it was frustrating losing to Ipswich 3-2, so we'll just take this point and build from that.

"We've been losing in games, getting it back into them and then losing late goals. So we have to say it is a good point because we didn't lose. If you can't win the game then you just don't lose it and that is what we probably need to do more of.

"You have to have a balance from going forward and defending. In a few games we probably haven't had that and we've lost it in the last few moments in the game. Today they had a good chance at the end, but we looked more sold today I felt.

"So fingers crossed in these next few games we'll keep going and turn those draws into wins. We just need to build on this and push on."

Rovers are back in action next Saturday when they take on Blackpool at Ewood Park in the fourth round of the Emirates FA Cup.
