In an interview for Yorkshire television, Premiership referee Mark Halsey claimed that Rovers asked the Football League for him to officiate the opening game at the Keepmoat Stadium.
A Football League spokesman said: 'It's absolute rubbish that Doncaster asked for Mark Halsey to be the referee for Monday's match.
'For high-profile and derby matches in the Football League it's common practice for Premiership referees to be appointed.
'It is also considered beneficial for clubs outside the Premiership to have top-flight referees in charge from time to time.'
