Richie Wellens has invited in a handful of forwards for a trial with Doncaster Rovers as he looks to bolster numbers for the pre-season friendly programme.

The Rovers boss was last night awaiting confirmation of whether the invitations had been accepted as he finalises his plans for Saturday’s friendly at Rossington Main.

Omar Bogle is Wellens’ only available attacking option with Fejiri Okenabirhie sidelined through injury and Jon Taylor having undergone surgery on Tuesday.

Former Queens Park Rangers youngster Aramide Oteh is set to join up with the Rovers squad on Friday.

Forward Oteh came through the Tottenham Hotspur academy before switching to QPR at the age of 18.

He made 21 appearances across four seasons for Rangers, with loans at Walsall, Bradford City, Stevenage and Colchester United during that period.

Wellens remains hopeful of securing a left winger with the Rovers recruitment team awaiting final confirmation from the target in question - a versatile forward that can operate across the front line.
