TEAM NEWS

Brian Jensen (thumb), Dean Leacock (groin), Conor Henderson (ankle), Matt Harrold (ankle) and Josh Simpson (hamstring) are all out through injury for Reds.

Key midfielder James Coppinger could return for Rovers after missing Saturday's 2-0 defeat to Walsall with ankle ligament damage. Luke McCullough (thigh) is also absent.


FORM GUIDE

Reds are unbeaten in their last three at home. Doncaster have lost one of their last eight in the League and are unbeaten away from home in the League since October.


VIEW FROM THE BENCH

: "I enjoyed my time there but a lot of the personnel have changed in the past two years and there aren't too many players left from my time at the club. It will be a tough game. Their away record is excellent but we've done well at home in recent games and it's up to us to produce another performance which our fans can feed off."Dean Saunders


Paul Dickov (Doncaster manager): "We were on a good run before losing (2-0 to Walsall) on Saturday. The good thing is that we are capable of starting another unbeaten run, hopefully on Tuesday."

  

WE’VE MET BEFORE?

This will be the fourth meeting between the clubs with Reds winning once and the other two ending in draws. Nicky Ajose got the only goal when Reds won 1-0 at the Keepmoat in August 2012 while Josh Simpson's goal earned us a 1-1 draw in the return fixture the following February. Earlier this season the teams fought out a goalless draw at Doncaster.
