Rovers boss waits on injured duo

18 September 2009 11:03
Coppinger missed the midweek defeat at West Brom due to an ankle injury he sustained in training on the morning before the game, while Heffernan has been sidelined since the defeat at Middlesbrough at the end of last month.

Waide Fairhurst is likely to start again up front alongside on-loan Billy Sharp should Coppinger and Heffernan fail to make it. James Hayter (groin) is definitely out.

O'Driscoll will be boosted by the return to fitness of James O'Connor, who came through unscathed at West Brom after replacing Gareth Roberts (cramp) in the first half.

O'Connor missed the final three months of last season due to knee ligament damage.
