Doncaster Rovers boss Sean O`Driscoll must decide whether to recall record signing Billy Sharp to the side for the trip to Crystal Palace on Saturday.
Sharp was an unused substitute in last weekends draw with Swansea City after missing the last four games with a hamstring injury.
The forward came through sixty minutes of a friendly at Chesterfield in midweek and will be pushing David Healy and James Hayter for a starting place.
Sharp may have to bide his time as both Healy and Hayter have been in great form. Healy as scored twice in four games since his arrival on loan from Sunderland and Hayter as scored in five games in a row since Sharp`s injury.
O`Driscoll is also boosted by the return to fitness of defenders Shelton Martis (groin) and Adam Lockwood (toe).
Rovers will still be without long term injured Simon Gillett, George Friend and James Chambers.
Martin Woods is still sidelined with the groin strain that as forced him to miss the last three games.
Joseph Mills has extended his loan deal from Southampton this weekend but is unavailable for this game.
Crystal Palace will be without club captain Patrick McCarthy who went off injured at Sheffield United last week.
Palace have a number of problems in defence, with McCarthy now joining the injury list, Adam Barrett, Anthony Gardner and Julian Bennett were all missing last weekend through injury.
Owen Garvan will be missing after being sent off at Sheffield United.
