Doncaster Rovers boss Darren Ferguson could hand a debut to a number of new summer signings for the season opener against Gillingham on Saturday.

Ferguson added French winger Issam Ben Khemis and Manchester City winger Rodney Kongolo to his squad today and they will both be in contention for a starting place this weekend.

Danny Andrew and Ben Whiteman will also be hoping to make their competitive debuts for Doncaster having arrived earlier this summer.

Alfie May is available for Doncaster having not been hit with a three-match suspension for his sending off at Chesterfield last weekend. May was forced to miss the friendly at Gainsborough Trinity on Monday, serving just a one-match suspension.

Ross Etheridge, Luke McCullough, Mathieu Baudry and Alex Kiwomya will all be missing having picked up injuries during pre-season.

Gillingham have also been busy during the summer in the transfer market. Billy Bingham, Luke O`Neill, Tom Eaves, Gabriel Zaliukas, Liam Naish, Connor Ogilvie and Billy Knott will all be hoping to make their competitive debut for the visitors.

Fellow new signings Conor Wilkinson and Alex Lacey have picked up injuries for Gillingham during pre-season and they are expected to be missing.
