A big boost for our confidence

A clean sheet and a couple of goals makes the world a better place for Darragh Lenihan and Rovers

16 September 2019

Three big points, a clean sheet and an assist meant Saturday wasn't a bad day to be Darragh Lenihan.

Whilst looking imperious in a new look back three system, the Irishman did his bit further forward as put the ball on a plate for Bradley Dack to wrap the game up in the 2-0 win over Millwall.

A starter in all but one of the league games so far, Lenihan's been part of a unit that have now kept four clean sheets in the last five league outings.

“The manager has mentioned the record of goals conceded last season and said we have to do better," the 25-year-old told iFollow Rovers after the game.

“We’re striving to get as many clean sheets as we possibly can. There were mistakes against West Bromwich Albion but today there wasn’t.

“The lads who came off the bench, the likes of Sam [Gallagher], Joe Rothwell, and when you think that Danny Graham didn’t get on today, we really do have a lot of goals in the squad with players of all types.

“Hopefully the lads can chip in with goals when needed."

Rovers head to Reading this weekend looking to build on the latest three points, and Lenihan added that the team will head to Berkshire in buoyant mood.

“The three points gives the lads more confidence, especially after the disappointment at West Brom," he said.

"We wanted to come back after the international break and give a good performance.

“In this league consistency is huge. You saw with Aston Villa at the end of last season how consistent they were and winning every week helped them get promoted.

“We need to build on each game as it comes, keep winning and push up that table."
