Doncaster Rovers boss Darren Moore has revealed he would like to add to his midfield area before the transfer window closes on October 5th.
Rovers have started the season well, registering a draw against MK Dons before beating Charlton 3-1 at the Valley, and Moore is keen to keep that drive going. After seeing loan signing Tyreece John-Jules grab his first goal for the club, Moore admitted he is keen to add to the areas behind the Arsenal loanee.
“I think looking at it, if I had to say one, I would say we would like a little bit more cover in the central zones, midfield zones,” Moore told Doncaster Free Press. “That would probably be the stand out area at the minute. We’re looking at areas where we could possibly strengthen.”
“At the moment it’s been a good period for me to look at the team and how we’re settling down and certain areas,” added the former West Brom boss. “While we maintain a clear focus on the league, we can analyse the squad through the week and see where it is. It gives us that.
“At the moment, nothing is happening but in the secondary stages we are looking at the squad and where it’s at.”
Rovers, who have been beaten once this season, at Ewood Park in the League Cup, host Bristol Rovers this weekend, and are waiting on the outcome of their final transfer offer to trialist Charlie Seaman. The former West Ham youth was released by Bournemouth in the summer and is hoping to secure a contract at the Keepmoat.
“I’m hoping, certainly by the end of this week, that we’ll have something done. Otherwise, we’ll have to draw a line under it,” said Moore.

Doncaster’s start has been impressive, and adding both John-Jules and Rayhaan Tulloch is shrewd business by Darren Moore, whose side were comfortably midtable last season.
There seems to be little fear that star man Ben Whiteman will move on, so they’re more likely to simply bolster, rather than make sweeping changes. It could be a strong season for Moore and Rovers, despite some pundits placing them lower in the table in their predictions.
