Harrison Myring’s bid to earn a longer stay at Doncaster Rovers has been hit by a fresh injury blow.

The young forward will reach the end of his short term contract with the club later this month, having originally signed in early November.

But his quest to impress has been hampered by injury issues.

He suffered a hamstring injury not long after receiving his contract. And in one of his first appearances back, he suffered an ankle injury representing Rovers U23s last week.

“He got an ankle injury in the last game and was due a scan early this week,” Rovers boss Darren Moore said.

“Harrison has been on a short term contract and he;s been stop-start, stop-start.

“He had a hamstring injury and then he came back and played in a game, tried to turn with the ball and felt something in his ankle.”

Moore admits he would like a longer look at Myring before deciding whether to hand him a longer term deal.

And he revealed he had planned on bringing the forward into the senior squad for matches later this month before his latest injury blow.

“I’ve looked at him in training but you want to see them in games,” Moore said.

“Because he’s had the injury, it’s stop-start.

“What he does have is tremendous speed, direction, real close ball control and good size and electrifying pace with the ball.

“He puts defenders on the back foot but we’ve not been able to see that at any substantial length of time because of the injuries.

“He’s been in with the first team a few times and just when we’ve been ready to play him in games he’s had a knock-back.

“This one was another knock-back because we were going to get him in with the first team over the next couple of weeks and get him up to speed and look to maybe introduce him into one or two games.”

The 18-year-old striker was released by Leicester City at the end of last season.
