DRFC Trio facing fitness battle

Doncaster Rovers have a number of injury worries once again ahead of the weekend trip to Plymouth Argyle.

Rovers, who have been unlucky with a number of players getting injured this season, saw three more players finish the weekend draw with Blackpool injured.

On loan striker Billy Sharp (knee), Martin Woods (groin) and Simon Gillett (hamstring) are all doubtful for the weekend although boss Sean O`Driscoll is hopeful the will have recovered in time.

With Rovers having no game the following weekend due to international games once again, O`Driscoll might take a chance with the trio knowing they have a fortnight to recover.

Speaking in the Doncaster Free Press, O`Driscoll said 'We have a two week break after this match which allows players more time to recover so I'm hoping all of them will be okay.'

Rovers will be hoping to gain their first away victory of the season on Saturday.
They enjoyed doing the double over Plymouth last season, and they will be hoping for a repeat of the 3-1 win that they enjoyed at Home Park towards the end of last season.

We are having no luck with injuries this season, O'Driscoll sounds confident they will al be fit though.

Seem to have a lot of hamstring and groin injuries this season, could be to do with the ground still being quite hard.
