Furman: The focus is on promotion

By James Masters, March 21, 2013

Dean Furman has set his sights on firing Doncaster Rovers into the Championship after sealing his loan move to the Keepmoat Stadium.

South African international Furman, who is out of contract at the end of the season, left Oldham last week following a four-year spell at the club.

The 24-year-old won rave reviews for his performances at the recent Africa Cup of Nations and is set to start in his country’s World Cup qualifier against Central African Republic on Saturday.

But the midfielder is already looking to add to the 27 minutes he played on his Rovers debut against Portsmouth last week with promotion the ultimate aim.

"It is vital to help get the club promotion back to the Championship,” Furman told the JC.

"That is the obvious aim and my main focus from now until the end of the season.

"Doncaster made an approach to Oldham with a view to taking me on loan a few weeks ago.

"It was very difficult leaving Oldham and I leave with mixed emotions.

"It has been a great four years of my career and I thank the club for giving me the opportunity to play for them."
