Darragh Lenihan believes Rovers should relish the upcoming home double-header against Stoke City and Derby County.

The Potters head to Ewood Park on Saturday, before the Rams make the trip up to East Lancashire three days later for our final midweek clash of the campaign.

It'll be a first outing on our own turf in almost a month for Tony Mowbray's side, and Lenihan's eager to take advantage and make home advantage count.

"They are two good sides but we’ve nothing to fear," the Irishman told iFollow Rovers when looking ahead to the clashes.

"We drew with Derby at their place and we beat Stoke so we can take confidence from that and I feel we’re better in home games as we have the home support.

"We’ll look to take six points from those games.

"We’ve two home games coming up and we’ll take each as it comes. You’ve no targets but we’ll try and do as best we can.

"Our home games are very important; I’ve said that from the start of the season."

And the 25-year-old adds that six points from the next two games could kickstart a strong end to the season with only seven games remaining of the campaign.

"We need to produce performances at home which we have done. Our away record has not been good enough when we look back," he reflected.

"But we look forward to our home games and hopefully we can try and get maximum points from it.

"Going into the summer if you don’t do well you’ll be asking questions of yourself. We need to keep working hard day in day out and I’m sure the results will come."
