Rovers manager Grant McCann is looking forward to seeing new signing Kieran Sadlier in action after being impressed by him in training.

Sadlier has signed a contract which kicked in on January 3, and he has been training at Cantley Park to ensure he is ready to hit the ground running.

McCann said: "He's fit,very fit. He's been working so hard and he looks really good.

"He's going to need a couple of games for the Development side, but we'll get them into him quickly."

Sadlier joined in a behind-closed-doors training ground game on Wednesday, and is in contention to go straight into the squad for Sunday's Emirates FA Cup trip to Preston North End.

He added: "I think it was important Kieran went down and saw what we do.

"He's seen all the home games since he's been here bit it was important for him to see the structure of our travel and see how we approach away games."

Rovers return to the Keepmoat Stadium to take on Burton Albion on Saturday January 19, with tickets available from
