Darragh Lenihan is hoping to be back in the starting lineup this weekend after limping off in the midweek clash against Swansea City.

Lenihan was replaced just 10 minutes into the game at the Liberty Stadium, with Jack Rodwell replacing the 24-year-old.

Darragh's desperate to be part of the side at the Hawthorns and believes he'll be touch and go to get his name on the teamsheet come 3pm.

“It was disappointing to come off so early into the game. I’ll hopefully be alright for Saturday. We’ll wait and see," he revealed ahead of the game in the Midlands.
 
“After last season, I’m desperate to play as much as I can this term.
 
“I feel more nervous on the sidelines than I am on the pitch because you can control things a bit more when you’re playing.
 
“You win some and you lose some and Swansea away was one of those games. We never lie down, we’ll always fight, and it’s important to learn and move on."
 
And on the final game of the weekend at West Bromwich Albion on Saturday, Darragh believes a victory will not only get Rovers back on track, but they'll reflect on a decent seven days.
 
“It’s a huge game. It’s been a big week for us having already played Leeds at home and then Swansea away," the Irish international adde.
 
“West Brom were a Premier League side last season and these are the sort of games we worked so hard for throughout last season.
 
“It’s an exciting challenge and is a game we’re looking forward to.
 
“A win at West Brom will make it a positive week. We’ll have taken six points from a tough week. The focus is all on the game, Leeds and Swansea are both behind us now.
 
“I think we are starting to show that we deserve to be in this league. We’ve beaten some good teams in this division and I feel we’re certainly heading in the right direction."
