Daniels was recalled from his loan at the Keepmoat by parent club Luton Town with a couple of weeks remaining on his temporary switch.

The 26-year-old was signed following the long term injury to Alex Baptiste while Joe Wright was still in the process of recovering from a knee injury suffered in pre-season.

He also received plenty of game time following an injury to fellow loanee Cameron John which kept him out for ten weeks.

But with Wright and John both fit and Baptiste on the mend with his Achilles injury, Moore is satisfied Rovers can cope for the remainder of the current campaign without the extra cover Daniels provided.

“Donny is very much part of Luton’s plans going forward,” the Rovers boss said.

“Defensively we’ve got Tom Anderson, Joe Wright and Cameron John in there.

“And we feel Alex Baptiste is making very good progress in his injury and it’s great to see him back out there.

“He’s back out on the grass, working with the physio and the sports science department.

“If need be, Ben Sheaf can slide back in there so we feel we’ve got adequate defensive cover.”

Moore has said however that he will consider all options available to him with his January recruitment, so would not rule out making further additions to his defensive line-up.
