Same again for Dickov

Doncaster boss Paul Dickov expects to have an unchanged squad for the visit of Watford.

Dickov, who is trying to sign a defender on loan, has not ruled out the possibility of making changes but there is a strong likelihood the Scot will pick the same line-up that started against Huddersfield on Saturday as Rovers chase successive Sky Bet Championship victories for the first time this season.

With Bongani Khumalo set to miss the remainder of the season with a ruptured kneecap, the defence should remain unchanged with Gabriel Tamas partnering Abdoulaye Meite at centre-half and James Husband and the fit-again Paul Quinn filling the full-back spots.

Dean Furman, Marc De Val Fernandez, Theo Robinson and Jordan Bowery provide options in midfield and up front.

Watford could welcome back Lewis McGugan as they look to build upon a run of just one Sky Bet Championship defeat in seven.

The former Nottingham Forest midfielder returned to full training having spent the last nine games on the sidelines with a thigh injury, although Tuesday's game could come too soon for the 25-year-old.

Swedish defender Joel Ekstrand will serve the final match of a two-game ban after picking up his 10th yellow card of the season at Bolton so Lloyd Doyley is expected to deputise again.

Midfielder Samba Diakite will be available again after returning from suspension while Australian veteran Lucas Neill could make his first start since signing a short-term deal with the Vicarage Road club.
