FORMER Doncaster Rovers manager Sean O’Driscoll will tonight come up against the striker he signed for Rovers but never saw play for them.

O’Driscoll, recently installed as boss at Nottingham Forest, takes them to League newcomers Fleetwood in the Capital One Cup and one of the close season signings for the Lancashire club is former Barnsley striker John Parkin.

He was signed on loan at Doncaster by O’Driscoll early last season but was sacked before Parkin made his Rovers debut.

O’Driscoll took over at Crawley but left without overseeing a game and was replaced there last week by Bury manager Richie Barker, the ex-Owls and Millers.
