Team News

Doncaster
Rovers will be without suspended duo Matt Mills and Martin Woods along with injured players James Hayter, Sean McDaid and Gordon Greer. Rovers are hopeful that both James Coppinger and Brian Stock will return to the side.

Wolves
The table toppers are hopeful that leading scorer Chris Iwelumo will return to the starting line up after missing the last few games.
They are also hopeful that Jody Craddock will return after getting over his broken toe.
Still sidelined are keeper Matt Murray and defender George Elokobi both with knee injuries.

History

The two clubs have only ever met on four occasions in the long history of the two clubs.

I remember Rovers last visit to Molineux in 1985 fondly when two long range efforts from Colin Douglas gained Rovers all three points, the ground at the time only had two stands open and one of those the pitch was about 40 yards from the stand!
