Darragh Lenihan says he will be out of action ‘for the next couple of weeks’ after coming off injured in Rovers’ defeat at Brentford.

Lenihan limped out of the 5-2 loss in the closing stages at Griffin Park followed a strong challenge with Sergi Canos.

The 24-year-old was one of four players to pick up an injury at the weekend, as Bradley Dack, Danny Graham and Corry Evans were also forced off.

Lenihan had been part of a backline which had kept three consecutive clean sheets in January to move Rovers back in to the top half.

He has started all but four of Rovers' 30 Championship fixtures so far this season, and hasn't missed a match since the 1-1 draw at Middlesbrough in December. 

His absence is expected to coincide with a return to fitness for Charlie Mulgrew.

The Rovers captain hasn’t played since injuring his hamstring in the FA Cup tie at Newcastle on January 5.

The 33-year-old resumed full training last week and is expected to put himself in contention for Saturday’s game with Bristol City.

Mulgrew was left out of the travelling squad to Brentford in a bid to give him further time to recover.
