Liam Mandeville should make Rovers return

Forward Liam Mandeville is expected to return to the Doncaster squad for the Sky Bet League Two clash with Cheltenham.

Mandeville, who has scored 10 goals in all competitions this season, has been nursing an ankle injury and has not featured since coming off the bench in the home draw with Morecambe on February 4.

Midfielder Gary McSheffrey will be hoping to take another step closer to the starting XI after two recent substitute appearances, but defender Joe Wright is ruled out with a knee problem.

Aaron Sinclair and Luke McCullough remain on the sidelines for Darren Ferguson's table-topping side.

Cheltenham are without the suspended Kyle Storer, who begins a four-match ban for the red card he received in last week's 0-0 draw with Mansfield.

Manager Gary Johnson, incidentally, serves a one-match touchline ban after being sent to the stands when protesting against the decision.

Danny Wright is pushing for a start, particularly if Johnson chooses to make changes following their inability to score last weekend.

The manager otherwise has a near fully-fit squad from which to choose.
