Team news

Doncaster
Both Lewis Guy and James Chambers have been suffering this week with illness but will hopefully be fit in time for Saturday. Matt Mills will hopefully have shrugged off the injury that made him a doubt for last Saturday`s postponed game at Cheltenham.

Bristol City
Bristol are hoping to have a number of first team players back for this game, Michael Mcindoe, Nicky Maynard, Brian Wilson and Jamie McAllister are all fit again.
Ivan Sproule and Jamie McCombe are both doubts after suffering injuries at Portsmouth.
