BRIAN Flynn is considering deals for Danny Webber and Mark Wilson who have both been training with the Rovers squad.

Flynn acknowledged the need for reinforcements following last night’s crushing 3-0 defeat at MK Dons, what he referred to as ‘a bad night.’

And the duo could be handed contracts before this weekend’s trip to promotion rivals Bournemouth.

“Danny Webber is someone I’m most certainly looking at bringing into the club, we’re looking very closely at him,” Flynn said.

“If I feel there is someone out there who can improve the squad, then I’ll have to look at it.

“Danny has only spent one day with us so far so I can’t really judge anything just yet.

“Mark Wilson has been in with us for as long as I’ve been here. He’s a good pro, I’ve known him a long time and it’s a case of whether I can cover all options.

“Especially with the injuries to David Syers and Paul Keegan, can we use his experience? I think that is something we will look at.”

Midfielder Wilson, 34, made 140 appearances for Rovers from 2006 to 2012 and has most recently played for non-league Gainsborough Trinity.

Forward Webber, 31, has been without a club since being released by Leeds United last summer.

Worryingly for Rovers, talismanic skipper Rob Jones was withdrawn at half time with a lower calf and ankle problem.
