League Two high-flyers Burton Albion bring in Blackburn Rovers youngster Darragh Lenihan on a month-long loan.

League Two outfit Burton Albion have signed Blackburn Rovers youngster Darragh Lenihan on loan for a month.

The 20-year-old, who can play in either central midfield or defence, will stay with the Brewers until November 22.

A Republic of Ireland Under-21 international, Lenihan is yet to make his Rovers debut since a 2011 switch from Irish side Belvedere, but has been named on the substitutes' bench for three Championship matches.

He joins one of League Two's high-flyers in Burton, who are three points shy of the summit in third place after 13 games of the season, and could make his debut in tonight's game against Carlisle United.
