Moore pleased with Simoes signing

6 January 2021

Darren Moore says he’s pleased to get winger Elliot Simoes in on loan from Barnsley.

The left-winger has put pen to paper on deal until May and Moore believes he’ll add something different to his Rovers side.

“I’m really, really pleased to get Elliot in,” he said.

“He’s got really good ability and agility and can work really well in tight spaces but also has the speed to really affect opponents and put them on the back foot.

“As well as being a winger, he’s got a keen eye for goal as well and when those opportunities come, he shows good composure to put the ball in the back of the net.”

Simoes has been no stranger to game time in the Championship this season with nine appearances for the fellow South Yorkshire side but Moore believes that time in League One will give the 21-year old chance to show what he can do consistently.

“Elliot wants the opportunity to come and play and compete for first team action,” Moore added.

“It’s a great opportunity for him to show what he can do and it’s great for us to have a player of that quality and that ilk come in.”
