Paul Dickov: Wary of changing too much at Doncaster

Paul Dickov: Wary of changing too much at Doncaster

Having been handed the reins at the Keepmoat Stadium at the start of the summer, Dickov has been able to bring useful experience in the shape of Ross Turnbull, Richie Wellens and Theo Robinson into his ranks.

He is happy with the business he has been able to carry out and is wary of overhauling a squad still on a promotion high.

Additions of the right quality will always be welcomed, but Dickov says he has nothing in the pipeline with two weeks of the summer transfer window remaining.

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

"Having the game on Friday night (against Blackburn Rovers) 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."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
