Jamie White suffered a broken ankle playing for the reserves in midweek after recently being brought back to the club from his loan spell at Shrewsbury.
Adam Lallana is fit again after injury but after the saints victory at Barnsley last weekend he may have to settle for a place on the bench.
Saints are rumoured to be on the verge of signing striker Arturo Lupoli from Fiorentina, although he`s currently on loan at Norwich City, will it be in time for this crucial game?
Rovers suffered no new injuries in the midweek draw with Cheltenham, still missing are long term injured Sean McDaid and James Hayter.
The two clubs have only ever met on seven occasions at Southampton with Doncaster yet to taste a victory on their visits, Southampton have won four and there have been three draws.
They have already played at Doncaster this season when Southampton won 2-0.
