Rovers entertain Norwich City in another crucial relegation six pointer against Norwich City on Friday hoping to continue their excellent run of form.
Doncaster go into the game on the back of four straight league wins, in midweek they won 1-0 against promotion chasing Sheffield United away.
Last time at home in the league they beat Burnley 2-1.
Recent home form (last game first) DWLWDW
Norwich threw away a 2-0 lead against Southampton at home in midweek and ended up drawing 2-2.
Last time away they lost 1-0 at Sheffield United.
Recent away form (last game first) LDLLLL
Brian Stock went off injured in midweek with a calf muscle problem but will hopefully be fit. Matt Mills is suffering with illness and Martin Woods has a virus, both will hopefully be fully fit for this game.
David Carney may make his debut after joining from Sheffield United on loan in midweek.
Mark Fotheringham and Jonathan Grounds both suffered knocks on Tuesday night and are slight doubts for the game.
The two clubs have only ever met on eight previous occasions, at Doncaster the home side have won one to Norwich`s three.
They have already met this season, Norwich won with the last kick of the game after trailing 1-0 with less than ten minutes remaining.
