Doncaster Rovers extend the loan spell of Watford and Australia defender Lucas Neill
Watford and Doncaster Rovers have agreed to extend Lucas Neill's loan spell until the end of the season, with the previous month-long agreement expiring.
Neill, who joined the Hornets on a short-term contract at the end of February, started in his first three games at Doncaster but has been injured for the last three.
The 36-year-old could make a return for Saturday's match with Reading, when Rovers will be hoping to secure the points needed to ensure their survival - they are currently one point above the relegation zone.
Neill only played six minutes as a substitute during his month at Watford, although he was in the 18-man squad for all five matches.
We understand he is on a very modest wage at Watford and that Doncaster are paying all of his wages during the loan spell.
