Home form can give us confidence

18 March 2017

Darragh Lenihan hopes Rovers can make it seven matches unbeaten when they take on Preston North End this Saturday lunchtime (kick-off 1.00pm).

The Rovers defender thinks that the team can approach the match against their near-neighbours with confidence backed up by recent performances, but knows that they'll need to be at their best against a Preston side harbouring ambitions of a top six place.

Lenihan feels the arrival of boss Tony Mowbray has instilled a degree of organisation and resilience in the ranks, and knows that with their recent home form, they have the chance to gain another positive result.

"It has been a lot better the last six games we've been unbeaten, hopefully we can make it seven against Preston," said the Irishman.

"The gaffer has been very good in the training sessions in terms of organisation, we all know exactly what job we have to do and we all know that Preston are going to be tough opposition. They have been doing very well in the league, but if we are on our game then we are more than capable of getting the three points.

"We've done well at home recently so we are looking to go and win every game and I don't see why not.

"We've beaten Newcastle twice who are top of the table, we've gone up and done well against some of the best teams in the league so I don't see why we can't get three points in every game.

"In terms of our recent form we are unbeaten in a good few games so we just need to keep going.

"There is confidence with the new manager coming in, he's got us more organised and difficult to beat, we just need to keep looking forward to each game and now Preston is the most important game."
