Darragh Lenihan has high hopes for 2019-20, insisting a play-off finish should be targeted

9 May 2019

The 2018-19 campaign may have just finished, but Darragh Lenihan has already laid down plans for the team for next season.

The Irish defender featured in 34 of the 46 league outings for Rovers this term and was a consistent performer at the heart of Tony Mowbray's backline.
 
The 25-year-old rounded off his campaign with a goal - a third of the season in all competitions - on the final day of the season draw at home to Swansea City.
 
And just moments after the final whistle blew on the season, Darragh quickly laid down a challenge both to himself and his team-mates.
 
“Hopefully next season I can weigh in with more goals," he said to iFollow Rovers after the game.
 
“It’s a competitive league and we can look forward to next season. We’ve finished the campaign well and I believe we can be stronger next season.
 
“We’re looking to improve and people shouldn’t forget that we were in League One last season.
 
“Fans saw glimpses of Harry Chapman and Jacob Davenport against Swansea and they’re only going to grow and improve as the games come and go.
 
“Those two boys had injury-hit season and I’m sure next term they’ll be a main part of us moving forward.
 
“I’m a part of the furniture here and the manager does put the faith in youth. Next season is one we’re all looking forward to," he added.
 
“I think we should challenge for the play-offs next season and we’ll be looking to do exactly that."
