Moore is delighted with the recruitment of new players carried out so far and is now focused on bringing cohesion within the freshened group.

But he will continue to look for new additions, with the season shortened by six weeks set to be incredibly demanding on his squad.

“I only look at it because I’ve looked at the fixture lists and it’s a demanding one,” Moore said.

“Ultimately, to deal with the quick turnaround in games and travelling in the week,

“That is why my work over the next few weeks is to claw back some days when we’ve not got a midweek game.

“The window is open for another few weeks. We’ll have a look at the squad and see where it is and see how it goes over the course of the next couple of weeks.

“We’ve done a bit of business now and brought some people in. It’s about settling things down and having a look.

“If the opportunity presents, another one becomes available and it’s right for Doncaster Rovers to boost the squad and get a bit more depth and it fits for us, that’d be great.

“For now, it’s about me working with the team, settling them down and finding that cohesion.

Rovers’ exit from the Carabao Cup means they have blank midweeks for the remainder of September before October presents eight matches to be tackled.

And Moore is relishing the time on the training ground.

“For the next couple of weeks, I’ll be honest, I’m really pleased to have it,” he said. “It presents us with an opportunity to work.

“We’ve got a squad here now, we need to settle down and work. There is a lot of stuff to do, in and out of possession of the ball.

“I saw in bits and pieces and I said to Jamie that there is work to do. We’ll identify that to the squad, as individuals and units.”

The domestic transfer window closes on October 16.
