Darragh Lenihan couldn't hide his delight after finally bagging his first ever Rovers goal to finish off a personal topsy-turvy season on a high note.

Lenihan's last goal came during a loan stint with Burton Albion, scoring for the Brewers against Portsmouth back in January 2015, before planting a header past ex-Rover Simon Eastwood on the final day of the season at home to Oxford.
And the Irishman was thrilled to end the campaign the way he wanted after suffering disappointment through the first half of the season thanks to injury after breaking a metatarsal against Southend United on the opening day back in August.
“It’s been a strange season in a way because it was one that didn’t start off the best, both for the club, and myself in getting injured," the 24-year-old told iFollow Rovers.
“But the finish was very good with us getting promoted and for myself in getting my first goal for the club on the final day of the season.
“I have had a couple of good chances to score over the years but I have now and hopefully I can get a few more next season.
“It was a great ball in from Charlie [Mulgrew] and I just got up early and headed it in to finish. It was a great feeling and a long time coming. It was brilliant to finish the season on a high in front of 27,000 fans."
