Tony Mowbray revealed Darragh Lenihan trained today to put himself in contention to feature against Middlesbrough this weekend.

Lenihan has missed the last two games with a knee problem but could return against Boro.

That would be a welcome boost for Tony Mowbray with Manchester City loanee Tosin Adarabioyo a doubt.

The 21-year-old made his debut against Fulham but is struggling with a knock, however Mowbray didn’t rule out both being involved on Saturday.

“Lenihan trained today, Tosin didn’t train today, but let’s wait and see,” Mowbray revealed.

“Tosin was quite positive when I chatted to him.

“It will be disappointing for him if he does not make Saturday I would suggest because his performance at Fulham was quite exciting.

“Not just with his defensive qualities but his ability to pass the ball out from the back, see early passes, it was really impressive.

“We will see tomorrow whether he can come through but the good thing for me was that Lenihan trained.”

Asked if Lenihan’s return to training meant the all-clear for his knee problem, the boss added: “He trained today and like any first day back after an injury we have to make sure there’s no reaction.

“If he comes in tomorrow and is fine and says there’s no problems then that will be great news for us.”

Corry Evans who sustained a knock in the Carabao Cup win over Oldham also trained with the squad despite being replaced on Tuesday.
