DRFC O'Driscoll may bring in a midfielder

DRFC O'Driscoll may bring in a midfielder

Sean O`Driscoll might be about to bring in another player on loan as the club are still suffering with a number of injures.

The Rovers boss was forced to bring in defender Joseph Mills from Southampton before Tuesday night`s game with Derby County.

James Chambers, Wayne Thomas, Shelton Martis, James O`Connor and George Friend were all ruled out through injury and Adam Lockwood needed pain killing injections to make himself available after breaking his toe last weekend.

Martis has resumed training this week and will be added to the squad for the weekend clash with Sheffield United.

The midfield is now the problem area with Simon Gillett joining the injury list in midweek after suffering a medial ligament injury.

Mark Wilson missed the game on Tuesday through illness and despite returning to training is still under the weather.

James Hayter was named on the bench despite injuring his ankle last weekend but he should be ok for the game on Saturday.

Martin Woods was forced to replace Gillett as a first half substitute despite suffering from a groin injury.

Woods as been sent to see a specialist and O`Driscoll is waiting on these results before deciding whether to bring in cover, speaking on the official website, O`Driscoll said, "If the specialist gives Martin the thumbs down, then we may need to look at bringing in somebody pretty quick."

O`Driscoll may decide to bring Josh Payne back from his loan spell at Oxford United. The 19 year old has made just the one start for Rovers since arriving at the club after being released by West Ham in the summer.

Jay Emmanuel-Thomas would be a popular choice amongst the fans if someone was to be brought in after the Arsenal youngster enjoyed a successful loan spell at the Keepmoat towards the end of last season.

Have we sent Ryan Mason back to Spurs? Teams will stop loaning us players as they all seem to be getting injured!

The problem is we only have a small squad so a few injuries really make an impression on the side.
