'Proud' Leonard on 250th appearance

6 October 2017

Ryan Leonard says it will be a proud moment if he makes his 250th appearance in a Blues shirt against Doncaster Rovers.

The 25-year-old – who was rested on Tuesday night against Reading U21s – is likely to reach the milestone at the Keepmoat Stadium.

And Leonard said it will be great to mark the occasion with a goal.

“I didn’t realise that to be fair,” he said. “It feels like only yesterday that I made my 200th appearance against Oxford.

“250 is a nice little landmark to get to at the club and it would be nice to mark it with a goal, like I did on my 200th.

“But I’m very proud and pleased. I’ve just turned 25 so to reach 250 is a nice achievement.

“Touch wood I don’t get too many injuries so if I can continue that and keep ticking off the landmarks.

“But the main thing is to win the game.”

The standout moment of his 249 games to date was clearly the Play-Off Final win over Wycombe Wanderers, but aside from that Leonard also mentioned the semi-final win over Stevenage.

“I won’t mention the Final because that is obviously the biggest one.

“The second leg of the Play-Offs that year against Stevenage when it went to extra time, that was right up there. Scoring a last minute winner against Portsmouth. There’s a few to be fair, too many to name.

“We always make it difficult so there’s always so many exciting game.”
