Rovers step up striker search

26 Nov 2008 - 13:25:46

Doncaster Rovers boss Sean O'Driscoll is keen to bring a new forward to the Keepmoat Stadium as he looks to bolster his shot-shy strikeforce.

Rovers are entrenched in the bottom three after finding the net only eight times in their first 19 Championship matches of the campaign.

No Doncaster player has scored more than two goals so far this term, with O'Driscoll admitting: "We know the problems we have but we don't want to get fixated on it, as it puts even more pressure on the people that get the chances.

"The strikers that you really want - there's absolutely no chance of us getting.

"It doesn't mean we need to lower our expectations, it just means that we start at that point and then go through the process of trying to get them, because you want to try and improve the squad that you've got.

"The way that we play football, we need a quality front man. I can get somebody who is quick, but that's all he is - quick.

"The other choice is bringing in somebody who hasn't played any league football and that's a big ask, to bring somebody in like that and expect them to perform at this level."
