Talented midfielder backed to do well next term.

Harry Forrester could be the key to success for Doncaster Rovers next term, according to his manager.

“Harry’s determined to get us back up,” said Paul Dickov.

“Everyone – myself included – is looking forward to getting a fit Harry Forrester back.”

The former Brentford man – who was instrumental in helping the Bees to the brink of League 1 promotion in 2013 – struggled with a series of injuries last season and admitted that he “owed the Club.”

Dickov said, “Harry will be a top player, he was so frustrated last year with his injuries as it wasn’t something we could pinpoint.”

“The first thing he said to us after the Leicester game was that he owes the Club next year.

“He’s going to come back as fit as he can to make sure that we have a good chance of doing that (bouncing back) and he’s got the potential to be the best player in the division next year.

“He’s of the focus and the mindset now that he can come back in pre-season the fittest he’s ever been and that’s a bonus for us all.

And speaking of bonuses, Dickov was buoyed by the progress made by centre back Rob Jones who has been nursing a neck problem.

“Rob’s been training away through the summer, there’s still only so much he can do. He’s got a meeting on the 23rd June with the specialist again where we’re all hopeful that he’ll get the green light and that will mean that he can get the go ahead to resume full training in pre-season,” he said.

“If that’s not the case then we’ll have to look after him until he is ready.”
