Marc Bola is still not fit enough to return and remains on the sidelines with Callum Guy, Jimmy Ryan and Max Clayton.

Nya Kirby is given a rare start on the bench but Elias Sorensen misses out for the sixth game running.

Doncaster occupy the final play-off spot but sit just three points ahead of Blackpool in the league table, meaning tonight's game could prove pivotal.

Their top scorer John Marquis misses out through suspension having been sent off in Doncaster's 2-0 defeat at AFC Wimbledon on Saturday.
