Joe Wright has his eye on a promotion tilt with new club Doncaster Rovers.

The Huddersfield Town Academy product was out of contract at the John Smith's Stadium and rejected the offer of a new deal to join the League Two outfit.

Wright spent time on loan at Accrington Stanley last season, and is hoping his experience in the league can help Rovers return to League One at the first attempt, after suffering relegation at the end of last term.

“It’s not far from home, that’s another positive so I know what people are like here in Yorkshire and I’ll hope to use that to my benefit,” said the Wales u21 international.

“I got a phone call from my agent and he said that Doncaster were involved. As soon as he said that then I was delighted.

“It was an easy decision for myself, there were some other clubs involved but really it was a 'no-brainer'.

“The ambition of the club (attracted me), it’s a big club that shouldn’t really be in this league so hopefully we’ll be getting promoted out of the league straight away. We’ve got a brand new stadium and I’ve heard the atmosphere here is very good so I’m looking forward to it.”

Wright was unable to force himself into David Wagner's first team plans, but is confident his style and experience can be a big asset at Doncaster.

He added: “I’ve got an idea of how teams play and an idea of the opposition that I’ll come up against and how some players play so I can use that to my benefit and try and perform as well as I can.

“I like to step out with the ball, the gaffer spoke to me about that and wants me to continue doing that. I’ll always give 100% no matter what the circumstances.

“The gaffer did a presentation when I came; it was very professional and explained what he expected from myself, the team and how we should play and it made me feel very welcome, very wanted by the club and that’s a good thing.”
