Doncaster Rovers entertain Nottingham Forest on Tuesday night in a crucial six pointer at the bottom of the table.
Rovers leapfrogged back above Forest on Saturday with a draw at Burnley, another game that Rovers managed to dominate but couldn`t find the back of the net.
The last time Rovers played at home they finally brought to an end a run of thirteen games without a win when beating Ipswich 1-0.
Recent form: DWLDLL
Forest lost at home on Saturday evening against Norwich City 2-1.
The last time Forest went on their travels they managed a 2-2 draw at Bristol City.
Recent Form: LDDDWL
Sam Hird was replaced in the first half on Saturday but there have been no news as to whether it was through injury or a tactical switch.
There are no other fresh injuries for Rovers.
Nottingham Forest manager Colin Calderwood says three or four players are carrying knocks after the weekend defeat but he will not reveal who the players are.
Rob Earnshaw looks set to miss out again after suffering an injury before Saturday`s game.
Lewis McGugan is available again after serving his three match ban.
The clubs have met a total of sixteen times at Doncaster, Forest were Rovers last ever opponents at Belle Vue when the home side ran out 1-0 winners.
Forest fans will remember with glee their 8-0 mauling of Rovers at Belle Vue in the League Cup in Rovers ill fated 1997/98 season.
In recent years Rovers have a good record against their visitors winning three of the last four games between the sides home and away.
Forest do have the better record at Doncaster though winning nine to Doncaster`s five with two games being drawn.
