United, who have won six of their last nine games and are placed 15th in Sky Bet League One, will be hoping to bounce back from last weekend’s 1-0 loss at Gillingham in the derby clash. 

They were defeated by a long range effort from Mark Byrne in the first-half and then struggled to get back into the game after that goal.

Meanwhile, Rovers, who are in the play-off positions, were in FA Cup action on Sunday, losing 2-0 to Premier League side Crystal Palace.  

TEAM NEWS…

Lee Novak returns to contention after being rested against Gillingham following a knock in the match versus Accrington a week prior.

Meanwhile, James Perch is also back after serving a two-match suspension following ten bookings this season.

Matthew Lund had a clean-up operation on the knee problem which has plagued him for the last two months this week and faces six weeks out.


Elsewhere, Josh Morris faces a further few weeks out with a fractured fibula and strained ankle ligaments. Jordan Clarke is out for two more months (knee), while Ryan Colclough (knee) is out for the remainder of the season. Rory Watson (arm) also looks likely to be out for the rest of the season following surgery last week. 

Cameron Borthwick-Jackson will be out for a further few weeks with cartilage damage sustained in the recent victory over Fleetwood Town.

PAST MEETINGS…

The two sides have met twice already this season with Doncaster winning on both occasions. 

Stephen Humphrys scored a late consolation goal for the Iron in the 2-1 Carabao Cup defeat at the beginning of the season, before Doncaster won the league match 3-0 in December.
