Brucie Bonus; If Price is Right

Sean O’Driscoll uses the official website to try his hand at salesmanship as Bruce Dyer is touted to would be buyers peering through the transfer window. Despite some impressive pre-season form that hinted the well travelled forward could be on the verge of making a first team breakthrough, Bruce Dyer has made just one appearance for the Rovers this season; coming on as a substitute in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy win over Bradford.

Since then Dyer’s only footballing action has come in the form of three matches whilst on loan at League Two Rotherham United. A persistent back injury has hampered the forward’s attempts to return to first team action; and the impressive form of Lewis Guy and the signing of James Hayter have left Bruce Dyer as sixth choice striker at the Keepmoat.

Although he may not be knocking down the door of the Rovers’ dressing room, Sean O’Driscoll was keen to big up the forward on the club’s official website. “He has been first class since I’ve been here and he is good to have around the place,” said O’Driscoll dangerously close to comparing the forward to a guide dog.

“He sets a good example and he can’t do any more to get in the squad than he is already doing. He looks fit now and I imagine he would be an asset to someone out there looking for a striker,” commented O’Driscoll before kicking Bruce Dyer’s tyres and spitting on an old hanky and polishing the striker’s forehead.
