DRFC On loan duo to develop during Rovers spell

DRFC On loan duo to develop during Rovers spell

Doncaster Rovers assistant manager Richard O`Kelly is hoping that the club can help develop youngsters Reece Brown and Milan Lalkovic who are currently on loan at the club.

Brown on loan from Manchester United and Lalkovic from Chelsea have both been thrown in at the deep end to help out the injury ravaged Rovers squad.

The pair made their first starts for the club in the side`s heaviest defeat of the season at Derby County.

Both players were denied permission to play for Rovers in the Carling Cup clash with Leeds United in the following midweek.

The pair came off the bench in the next championship game with Bristol City and helped the side claim their first point of the season. O`Kelly is confident the pair will develop during their time at the Keepmoat. Speaking in the Sheffield Star, O`Kelly said, "They are both young players who have come here to get experience and games.
"The pair of them have fitted in well. Their first games didn`t go the best. It was probably our worst performance of the season.
"But they came on and contributed to us securing a well earned point at home to Bristol. It is not an easy situation for them because results aren`t quite going our way.
"We wanted to get them involved and we hope we can develop them as players."

Brown came close to securing all three points for Rovers in the draw with Bristol City when he headed over in injury time.

Lalkovic is currently away with the Slovakia under 21 squad and he will return to the Keepmoat towards the end of the week as the side prepare for the clash at Cardiff City on Saturday.

Both players have signed on initial one-month loan deals.

Might be worth keeping them until the New Year whilst Rovers get everyone back fit. I was shocked to see them not allowed to play in the Carling Cup.
