LEICESTER City midfielder Franck Moussa and Blackpool striker Jason Euell both play their final game for Doncaster Rovers under their current loan spell in tomorrow’s encounter against Championship leaders Queens Park Rangers at the Keepmoat Stadium.
Said Rovers’ boss Sean O’Driscoll: “Ideally we’d like to keep both of them and some dialogue has already started with Leicester and that will extend into next week.
“We need to talk to both boys. Franck is obviously a young boy with his career ahead of him. Jason is probably looking for something a bit more long term.
“If someone came in for him he’d have to consider that.
“Jason is now fit again after his knee injury. He was on the bench at Nottingham Forest last weekend and we’d have probably put him on up front and given James Hayter a bit of a rest but we had to take people off who were injured.”
Mark Wilson and Shelton Martis both came off but both trained yesterday and will come into contention for tomorrow’s game.
Goalkeeper Neil Sullivan will also be in the frame after missing several games with an ankle injury.
“He’s not 100 per cent,” said O’Driscoll. “We’ve restricted his kicking in training, but he’s been back between the sticks and looking quite sharp.”
Rovers also welcome back midfielder John Oster after a calf injury.
O’Driscoll is hoping that Rovers can build on their first clean sheet in ten games at the City Ground.
“If you can keep a clean sheet then you give yourself a better chance to win games, ”he said.
He admits that Rovers’ improved defensive showing of late will face a searching examination against Neil Warnock’ side.
“In a division as tight as this to seven points clear at the top, and concede just 23 goals and score probably more goals than most teams, are stats that back up claims that they are the best side in the league. You’ve got to say that they are doing something right.
“They’ve also have a player like Adel Taarabt. “They have really tried to nurture him.”
Midfielder Ryan Burge has joined Oxford on a month’s loan and defender Byron Webster is expected to join Northampton Town on loan,
