Tony Mowbray has ruled Darragh Lenihan out of Sunday's clash against Middlesbrough at Ewood Park, with the Irishman joining long-term absentees Dominic Samuel and Ben Gladwin on the sidelines.

The centre back, who has been a key figure for Rovers this term, limped off at Brentford at the beginning of February, with  scans revealing a knee injury for the 24-year-old.

But aside from the number 26, Gladwin and Samuel, the rest of the Rovers squad are fit and firing ahead of Boro's visit to East Lancashire.

“We’re looking alright on the injury front," said Tony to iFollow Rovers when discussing his team news.

"Darragh’s the main one, whilst the two long-term ones in Dominic and Ben Gladwin are off my radar at the moment.

“Darragh is someone I keep asking the physios about. Apart from that I think we’re all okay and we’re looking forward to this game.

“I think Darragh was initially out for four to six weeks or six to eight weeks. Let’s hope he comes back quickly. At the moment he’s walking around with a leg brace on.

“Give him a few weeks and we’ll see how close he comes to returning when he has his boots on and is jogging up and down."

And touching on Gladwin and Samuel, who are both back running, the boss expects to be without the duo for the remainder of the campaign.

“Those two are progressing every day, but I don’t think they are going to have a massive impact on us for the rest of the season," he added.
