Boss praises Rovers debutants

5 February 2018

Rovers manager Darren Ferguson was pleased with the performance of his new faces in Saturday’s 2-2 draw at Portsmouth – with three players making their Rovers debuts, and one making his first appearance of the season.

The match saw debuts for defensive pair Andy Boyle and Tom Anderson, signed on loan from Preston North End and Burnley respectively, as well as a debut for Alex Kiwomya after a long spell out with illness and a return to the side for Luke McCullough after a long-term knee injury.

“It’s fantastic to see Alex and Luke come on because they’ve been out for so long, Luke is a very good player, and for Alex, what you see is what you get, and he has so much pace and looked very good and they are like two new signings as I’ve said before,” said Ferguson.

“My two new centre halves did well, I had no choice but to throw them in for their debuts. They headed everything away and dealt with them, I’m getting the absolute maximum from everybody in that squad.”

Tickets for Rovers’ home game with Charlton Athletic on Saturday February 10 are still available. They can be purchased via the Club Doncaster Ticket Office, either by visiting in-store, calling on 01302 762576, or online at
