DRFC Doncaster v Brighton Team News

Doncaster Rovers boss Dean Saunders could be boosted by the return of influential midfielder James Coppinger for the game with Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday.

Coppinger has been out since suffering a fractured cheekbone in the game at Bristol City in January and he is pushing for a place in the side after returning to full training.

Rovers will also have goalkeeper Carl Ikeme in the squad after he returned to the club on loan from Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Ikeme is expected to start after David Button returned to Tottenham Hotspur after coming to the end of his two month`s on loan at the Keepmoat.

Striker Chris Brown is also close to a return to first team action. Brown has been out through injury since August but he scored in a midweek friendly against Alfreton Town.

Neil Sullivan, George Friend, Martin Woods and Habib Bamogo are all out through injury.

Brighton have Tommy Elphick, Marcos Painter and Gary Dicker on the sidelines through injury whilst a number of players return to the club following international duty.
