Rovers rock Darragh Lenihan felt the team deserved for for their display in the entertaining 2-2 draw against Wigan Athletic at Ewood Park.

The Irishman continued his impressive form since returning to the side after a long injury lay-off, and admitted after the game that throwing away a two-goal lead left him "frustrated."
But the 23-year-old insited that there are plenty to positive to take, not least Rovers' current league position.
“It’s frustrating because I thought our performance was excellent, especially scoring two goals in the first half," the centre back reflected after the game.
“I felt we should have seen the game out better, all the lads know that. I give Wigan credit though as they upped it in the second half, but we’re still disappointed to draw.
“I think a 2-0 lead is always a tricky one because the next goal is massive. We knew how important the start in the second half was but it wasn’t to be in the end. We move on to Blackpool next week."
And with Rovers' destiny in their own hands, Lenihan and the lads know exactly what is required between now and the end of the campaign.
The defender is also backing the team to come up trumps when it comes to acquiring the points needed for promotionn back to the Championship at the first time of asking.
“Hopefully in the next 10 games we can continue doing well and manage to produce the goods.
“We will look back and see what we can do better and learn from those mistakes, improve, and do better."

Rovers are next in action on Saturday 10th March when ex-boss Gary Bowyer brings his Blackpool team to Ewood Park in League One.
