Dickov, who was installed into the Keepmoat Stadium hotseat on Monday, inherits a side that has just won the League One title and return to the second tier after a year away.

While the former Oldham manager has identified transfer targets, he is intending to utilise the squad he has at his disposal.

"I am really excited, proud and honoured and I am really looking forward to hitting the ground running," he said of his appointment at the South Yorkshire club.

"Every team that I was successful in as a player really had a togetherness about it and seeing Doncaster a lot this year I really do think that is what got them over the line.

"Yes, I have got targets and ideas of players who I want to bring in, but those players will have to come in and integrate, there won't be an influx of players coming in at once.

"They will have to come in with the same work ethic and desire. I have got targets, a long list of them, but it has to be the right player."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
