New signing Dean Shiels may still be missing after pulling out of Ireland`s midweek international.
Richie Wellens limped out of last weekends win at Blackpool but hopefully he will be fit.
Matt Mills is struggling with a groin injury.
Francis Jeffers is still missing following his recent sending off at Nottingham Forest.
Akpo Sodje is back in training but not quite match fit.
The two clubs have only ever met on seven occasions at Doncaster and the home have yet to taste victory, Wednesday have won five with two games being drawn.

The two clubs have already met this season with Wednesday winning 1-0 at Hillsborough in November.
