COMBATIVE full back Tommy Spurr has played his last game in Doncaster Rovers’ battle to beat the drop.

The 24-year-old requires surgery on his broken right hand and will be forced to sit out Rovers’ remaining nine games.

Dean Saunders said after Tuesday night’s woeful 3-0 defeat to Millwall - in which Spurr was one of the few Rovers players to do himself justice - the left back needs an operation to prevent permanent damage to his hand.

“Tommy’s out for six weeks,” said Saunders.

“How’s your luck?

“He’s broken a couple of bones in his hand and it needs to be sorted otherwise it will cause him problems further down the line.

“Obviously he’ll be a big miss but that’s why I brought in Herita Ilunga to act as cover.”
