Paul Dickov remains keen to further strengthen his Doncaster squad, but the Rovers boss insists no new arrivals are imminent.

Dickov has already brought the likes of Marc De Val Fernandez, Harry Forrester, Dean Furman, Mark Duffy, Ross Turnbull, Richie Wellens, Reece Wabara, Bongani Khumalo and most recently Theo Robinson to the Keepmoat Stadium this summer.

He is happy with the business he has been able to carry out so far but is still on the lookout for more players, although nothing is in the pipeline.

"Any manager will tell you that you're always trying to bring players in," Dickov told Sky Sports News.

"Having the game on Friday night (against Blackburn Rovers) last week gave myself and the staff a chance to go out and watch teams and watch players at the weekend.

"What I will say is that I'm happy with what I've got at the minute. We've created competition for places by bringing good players in and the performances have been good. The players know that if they do well for me then we'll stick by them and we won't need to bring anybody in."

Pressed on whether he had targets lined up, Dickov added: "Not at the minute. We brought Theo Robinson in last week and what I don't want to do is change too many faces from last year.

"You could tell very quickly when we came into the club, you could see why the club got promoted with the character and the attitude.

"Yes, we wanted to add a bit of quality to it, but we want to keep faith with the boys who have got us here in the first place as well."
