Jacob Davenport is aiming to end a frustrating first campaign at Ewood Park on a high - by making his first team debut before the end of the season.

After arriving from Manchester City in the summer of 2018, injuries have prevented the 20-year-old from making an appearance in Tony Mowbray's first team.

However, after playing for Damien Johnson's Development Squad in recent weeks and months, the youngster is targeting game time under Mowbray before the end of the campaign.

“I’m getting back to fitness now, which is the main thing," he told iFollow Rovers.

"I’ve never had a season like this so far in my career, but I’ve learned lessons and I’m now looking forward to next season.

“It’s been frustrating, hopefully my first game will come soon enough. There are positives to take from negative situations and I feel physically I’m much better now, building up my strength.

“I’ve had about four or five 90 minutes in the Under-23s now and I’m hopeful of getting some more minutes before the end of the season.

“It’s always tough watching from the sidelines, but I’ve been supporting the lads the best I can.

“I’m feeling fit and it’s going to be a massive summer for me. Hopefully it’ll be a bigger and better season for me next term."
