DRFC Doncaster v Crystal Palace Team News

Doncaster Rovers boss Sean O`Driscoll will add new signing Jon Parkin to his side for the home clash with Crystal Palace on Saturday.

The striker has signed from Cardiff on a one-month loan deal and will be hoping to bolster a Rovers frontline that as netted just twice in seven championship games so far this season.

Milan Lalkovic has extended his loan from Chelsea into a second month and will be pushing for a start.

Brian Stock will be hoping for a place in the starting line up after coming off the bench last weekend at Reading.

Rovers are also boosted by the return to full fitness of midfielder Ryan Mason and he will be pushing for a place in the squad.

Billy Sharp is also back in full training but the game on Saturday comes too soon for a return.

Another long-term absentee, Adam Lockwood is also stepping up his comeback but he is still a way of a return.

Martin Woods, Chris Brown, James Chambers and Paul Keegan all remain on the sidelines.

Crystal Palace manager Dougie Freedman made eight changes in midweek for the Carling Cup clash with Middlesbrough and he faces some tough decisions after seeing his side record a 2-1 win.

Wilfried Zaha in particular impressed in midweek and will be hoping to start.

Alex Marrow, Steffen Iversen and Anthony Gardner all appeared in midweek after injury lay offs.

Lee Hills is continuing his rehabilitation after eighteen months on the sidelines but he is still some way from a return to full fitness.

Nathaniel Clyne, Kagisho Dikgacoi and Owen Garven all remain on the sidelines.
