Rovers defender Darragh Lenihan wants our supporters to be the 12th man once again in 2018-19 as the new Championship campaign edges ever closer.

We've got less than a month until the opening game of the season away at Ipswich Town and Lenihan is eager for the fans to return in their numbers both home and away.

And the Irishman - who represented his country, got engaged and then signed a new deal to extend his Ewood stay until 2022 - has touched on the final game of last season to showcase exactly what that fantastic support can do.

Almost 28,000 fans packed into Ewood in the sunshine against Oxford United and the 24-year-old wants more of the same in 2018-19.

“I think the crowd against Oxford was the biggest I've played in front of at Ewood and is probably the biggest we've had there for a good number of years," the centre back said.

"The atmosphere was amazing, the players appreciated and it showed with that late winning goal. I'm sure we'll have more attendances like that next season and that will definitely help us get positive results.

“People have different things to be doing but it definitely helps, whether that be wanting to score or needing to hold on. They can really be the difference for us next season."
