Rovers boss Tony Mowbray has confirmed defender Darragh Lenihan is getting closer to a return to action, despite a setback with his recovery.

The centre-back hasn’t featured since our opening day trip to Southend at the start of August, with scans later revealing he had fractured his metatarsal.

But his rehabilitation has gone well and things are looking good for the 23-year-old, who is closing in on a return to the squad.

"Darragh's had a setback a week or so ago but he's been running the last few days and it's about building it up," Tony revealed when asked for an update on his defender.

"I think there'll be a smooth progression from here on in. Before we know it he'll be ready and available for me, probably in a few weeks.

"We had a plan for him before his setback. We want him to progress but only do it when his body is ready to be back.

"We'll build him up by increasing the intensity and gradually getting him more involved."
