Nathan Tyson: Happy to sign Doncaster contract

Rovers have the option to extend the 32-year-old striker's stay after 12 months and he is excited at the prospect of helping the South Yorkshire club return to the Championship.

Tyson told the club's official website: "Suddenly something popped up as fantastic as this and it's worked out really well so far.

"I've still got to go out there and impress. I've got the contract, that's the easy part done. The hard part is for the rest of the year putting the performances in and getting the results and the goals and points to help us move up the league."

The ex-Derby, Forest and Millwall forward has over 400 career appearances and wants to use his experience to guide the younger players in Paul Dickov's squad.

He added: "The young lads now have to turn to men and the older lads - like me - have to pass that down to them. If you work as a team and do the basics right then you can find yourself in a good position in the league."

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.
