Doncaster striker Paul Heffernan is set to join Bristol Rovers on loan subject to the relevant paperwork.

The Irishman, restricted to 13 first-team appearances for Sean O'Driscoll's side this season, will join the Pirates for an initial month.

Heffernan spent a month on loan at Oldham at the end of last year, scoring one goal in four appearances.

Heffernan joined Doncaster in June 2005 from Bristol City, where he scored four goals in 27 appearances, after making a name for himself at Notts County.
