Darragh feeling positive

"Over the next few weeks and months, the last 20 minutes in games are sometimes going to prove the difference"

16 January 2019

Darragh Lenihan has picked up the Man of the Match award in Rovers' last two games and believes the team can head into the second half of the season in confident mood.

The Irishman, who played his part in a clean sheet at Millwall before scoring for Rovers against Newcastle United last night, has been in fine form in recent weeks.
 
Despite defeat against the Magpies, Rovers have started 2019 in fine fettle, with victories over West Bromwich Albion and then Millwall.
 
And ahead of Ipswich Town's visit to Ewood Park on Saturday, Lenihan's desperate for Rovers' winning run in the Championship to continue for a while yet.
 
“Over the next few weeks and months, the last 20 minutes in games are sometimes going to prove the difference. Fingers crossed we can keep the form up and get a run together," he told iFollow Rovers.
 
“In this league consistency is huge. If we can get a run going you never know where it can take you. We have a cup game on Tuesday, but after that we have back-to-back home games in the league, so let’s hope we can take confidence into these next few games.
 
“You don’t want to look too far ahead, we will take things game by game.
 
“The boys are confident and want to keep doing well for the club. There have been too many times when those fine margins have gone against us in recent months.
 
“The last two goals we’ve conceded in the league have been penalties, so we’ve addressed some of the issues that were there beforehand."
