Millwall inflict a cruel defeat on Rovers at the New Den when James O`Connor scores an own goal in injury time as they lose 1-0.

Brian Stock, who is out of contract at the end of the season, commits his future to Rovers by signing a new two and a half year deal.

Despite five players returning there are still six players on the sidelines.

Striker Waide Fairhurst joins League Two side Hereford United on an initial one-month loan deal.

Defender Dennis Souza extends his short-term loan until the end of the season.

Rovers suffer another defeat when Portsmouth leave the Keepmoat with a 2-0 win.

Ipswich Town come to the Keepmoat four days later and leave with all three points as they hammer Rovers 6-0.

Rovers sign Franck Moussa on a month`s loan from Leicester City and Jason Euell from Blackpool.

Swansea sweep aside Rovers in a 3-0 win at the Liberty Stadium.

Rovers travel to promotion chasing Norwich City with fourteen first team players on the injury list.

They produce an excellent performance and earn a point in a 1-1 draw thanks to an own goal.

Jason Euell scores his first goal for the club as they finish the month with a 1-1 draw at home to Watford.

The month finishes with Rovers in nineteenth place and now just eight points above the relegation places.

Fourteen players on the injury list. I can't ever remember it being anywhere near this in all the time I've followed football.
