DRFC Saunders looking to bring in a keeper

DRFC Saunders looking to bring in a keeper

Doncaster Rovers boss Dean Saunders is looking to bring in a goalkeeper ahead of the game with Brighton and Hove Albion at the weekend.

Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper David Button came to the end of his two months on loan at the Keepmoat after the game with Peterborough United at the weekend and it is believed he has returned to White Hart Lane after making 8 appearances for the club, in which he kept 3 clean sheets.

Saunders is expected to turn his attention back to Carl Ikeme who was forced to cut short his loan spell at the Keepmoat earlier in the season after breaking his thumb.

The Wolverhampton Wanderers goalkeeper is now back to full fitness and Saunders will hope to bring back the shot stopper who made 5 appearances between November and December.

If Rovers fail in their attempts to bring Ikeme back to the Keepmoat it is believed that they will turn to another goalkeeper who has spent time on loan with the club this season.

Wigan Athletic goalkeeper Chris Kirkland made just one appearance in the 3-0 defeat to Leeds United in October before being forced to return to the DW stadium after suffering an injury in training.

With Rovers veteran goalkeeper Neil Sullivan still recovering from surgery on his broke thumb, Rovers have just one senior goalkeeper at the Keepmoat at the moment in Gary Woods.

Woods started the season as the regular number one under former boss Sean O`Driscoll, starting the first 8 games of the season.

He has made 3 appearances for Dean Saunders over the festive period but hasn`t featured since the 4-1 defeat to Watford on New Year`s Eve.
