Bristol Rovers keeping tabs on situation with 25-goal striker

Bristol Rovers could potentially swoop to bring in Dom Telford this summer according to Bristol World.

The striker lit up League Two last season and ended the campaign with 25 goals in the fourth tier in just 35 starts. It led to an average of 0.74 goals per 90 minutes over the course of the season but it wasn’t enough to get Newport promoted.

Now, with the side stuck in League Two, the player has decided to part ways with the club at the end of his contract – and now Bristol Rovers could weigh up a move for him during this offseason.

Where did Bristol Rovers finish in League Two last season?

The Gas are now a division higher in League One and that could tempt Telford into a move considering the fact it would give him a chance to leap up a league and try his luck in the third tier again.

Telford has previously played for the club too back in the 2017/18 campaign when he was just 20-years-old. During that stint though, he could manage only one start for the side and had to make do with most of his showings coming from off the bench.

He still managed to chip in with three goals in 19 total league outings though – and with the player now arguably in the form of his life, it could be the perfect time for a reunion with the club.

There has been no official bid made yet but the report from Bristol World suggests that Rovers have been put on ‘high alert’ over his availability as he begins to search for a new team this summer.

There will no doubt be plenty of suitors for him – and the Gas could be one of them it appears.

The Verdict

Dom Telford would be an excellent signing for anyone in League One or Two right now and it would be interesting to see if he could repeat his goalscoring exploits a division higher.

The forward was excellent last year and bagged a tremendous amount of goals – but as it was the first time in his career, there could be question marks over whether it was merely a flash in the pan or if he has merely found his feet and entered his peak.

There is a solid case to be made that the reason he hasn’t scored goals any earlier is because of his lack of playing time. Prior to his season with Newport, he managed a double digit amount of starts in only one other season and that saw him score six times in 16 starts for Bury.

Give the man gametime then and it looks like he could score goals regardless of the level – and with Rovers now looking to try and stay in League One, he could be the perfect signing for them.
