O'Driscoll set to keep the faith

24 January 2011 04:30
Doncaster manager Sean O'Driscoll is expected to name an unchanged side for the derby clash at Barnsley. O'Driscoll has had to contend with a series of injuries to various defenders this season but is able to field two centre-halves, Adam Lockwood and Matt Kilgallon, alongside each other in successive matches. Defender Joe Mills, on loan from Southampton, will be out for another three weeks due to a cracked shin bone and centre-half Wayne Thomas remains sidelined due to a calf strain. Another defender, George Friend, will start on the bench again following his return from a knee injury alongside Dennis Souza, who gives O'Driscoll an alternative option at the back. Martin Woods is sidelined again after suffering a recurrence of a groin injury, while fellow midfielders Simon Gillett (knee) skipper Brian Stock (back) will also be missing.
