DRFC Forest v Rovers Team News

Doncaster Rovers travel to Nottingham Forest on Saturday hoping to continue with their recent good record at the City Ground.

Rovers are unbeaten on their previous three visits and their 4-2 victory on Boxing Day last year proved to be Colin Calderwood`s last game in charge for Forest.

Team News

Forest
Strikers Dexter Blackstock and Robert Earnshaw are hoping to start. Earnshaw came off the bench last week at Middlesbrough to score the goal that earned Forest a point, whilst Blackstock also made his comeback from a knee injury, when he also came off the bench.

New loan signing Nicky Shorey is likely to replace the suspended Chris Cohen in defence who picked up his fifth yellow card of the season last weekend.

The home side are still without Julien Bennett (knee) and Nathan Tyson (calf).

Rovers
Defenders Jason Shackell, Adam Lockwood and Byron Webster will all be pushing for a place in the centre of defence.
Shackell was only on the bench last week after injury whilst both Lockwood and Webster return from long term injuries.

Martin Woods will return to the squad after sitting out the win over QPR through suspension.

Still out is Brian Stock who is expected to be out until January whilst Steve Brooker and Sean McDaid are still regaining full fitness after long term injuries.

Shame they couldn't perform, maybe should have stuck with the same side that beat QPR last week.
