On loan striker Reo Griffiths has been sent to Yeovil Town to get game time, according to Doncaster Rovers manager Danny Schofield.

The boss, who had a spell as a player at Huish Park in 2008-09, said the former Tottenham Hotspur youngster had struggled to get minutes either on the training pitch or during matches.

Griffiths made his first appearance for the Glovers as a 64th minute substitute in the midweek defeat at Barnet, his first appearance since a 17-minute cameo at the end of Donny’s Boxing Day defeat at Tranmere Rovers.

Speaking of the striker to the Doncaster Free Press, Schofield said: “He’s suffered lots of injuries and little setbacks since I have been in the building and he’s not been able to get a run of training sessions, never mind games.

In order for him to develop that physical aspect of his game we felt he was more likely to get more minutes elsewhere.

Yeovil showed an interest and I think it’s a good opportunity for Reo to go and play games and help them in their season.”

Griffiths arrived in South Yorkshire in January 2022 having spent the previous four years playing for the reserve side of French giants Lyon after starting his career in the Tottenham Hotspur academy, where he was prolific.

He has appeared five times for Donny, starting just twice, and is yet to score. He scored twice in 16 appearances last season.

On Griffiths’ future, the boss added: “It will be reassessed in the summer. He’s still under contract, so he will be back in the summer.

As the season comes to an end we will reassess all players.
