Full back says he has a point to prove to some.

New Doncaster Rovers defender Reece Wabara has declared that he has “unfinished business” with the Club, having signed a short term contract.

The former Manchester City defender exited the Etihad Stadium in the summer and headed back to the Keepmoat Stadium, where he had a loan spell last term.

“I was disappointed to see them get relegated last season so I want to help them get back to the Championship and I was playing at maybe 70% last season due to injury so I’m glad I’m fit now and ready to go,” he said.

“I was playing with a broken foot, so hopefully I can make up that other 30%.

“I met the gaffer over the summer and we had a chat but obviously there’s been a lot of drama going on but I’m glad it’s all sorted now.

“I know the gaffer, the players and the club so it was an easy decision to make.”

The capture of Wabara – along with Cedric Evina – adds pace in the full back areas and the former Oldham loanees are intent on kicking on.

“I think we’ve got a young and ambitious squad and that’s important to have,” said Wabara.

“Everyone is on the same wavelength and wants to get promoted and is determined to prove a point to themselves, the fans and the club.”
