Mark Duffy has admitted his frustration at not being one of Paul Dickov’s regular names on the Doncaster Rovers teamsheet.

The 27-year-old winger has only started one game for Rovers in the Championship and is yet to complete a full 90 minutes for Rovers this season since his summer transfer from Scunthorpe United with Dickov tending to use him more as an impact player from the bench.

Duffy was arguably one of the standout performers in Rovers Development team’s 4-0 loss to Hull City reserves yesterday, playing the full match.

Despite being pleased with his game time and performance, Duffy admitted he doesn’t want to be playing reserve team football all season.

“It has been frustrating for me. I played in the Blackpool game (Rovers opening game in the Championship) and came off, I thought I did okay. The same happened against Rochdale, so it has been frustrating if I’m honest,” said the former Iron winger.

“It’s been brilliant since I joined though, the lads have been brilliant and really made me feel welcome.

“I just want to show the manager what I can do. Hopefully I did that against Hull Reserves.

“I thought I played well, I attacked my full-back and got some crosses in so I was pleased with my overall performance.

“I just want to get more match time now, hopefully I can get a look in against Huddersfield Town (on Saturday).”
