Brian Stock is contemplating his future away from the Keepmoat after dropping down the Rovers pecking order in recent weeks.
Stock is in the last year of his contract at the club and despite admitting he`d be upset to leave the Keepmoat, at the age of 28 he realises that his next contract could be his last chance to earn a contract to set him up for the future. Speaking in the Sheffield Star, Stock said, 'I'd be upset to leave the club.
I've enjoyed a lot of success here and seen a lot of changes and I think that I've been part of that. I've had a good four years at Doncaster Rovers and if I do leave I'll leave with my head held high.
Whether my future is here or elsewhere I need to secure my future because I've got two young children to support and football is only a short career.'
After suffering with a reoccurrence of his problematic back injury that ruled him out of Wales European qualifier against Montenegro at the start of September, Stock has only started one league game since August when he started at Watford in the middle of September. He`s found himself dropped to the bench for Rovers last five games and pulled out of Wales European qualifiers this week due to a lack of match sharpness and claimed it was nothing to do with his back injury.
'It is the first time that the manager has ever dropped me. It was upsetting at the time and it was hard to take, but you've just got to react in the right way," he continued.
The 28 year old has spent four years at the Keepmoat making over 150 appearances and he was the team captain when they won the League One play off final at Wembley in 2008.
