Doncaster look set to benefit from the return of three players for the visit of Cardiff.
James Chambers has recovered from a hamstring injury and could line up against his old club at the Keepmoat Stadium.
Fellow defender James O'Connor is also back in contention following his return from a fractured metatarsal.
Brian Stock limped off during last weekend's 1-0 defeat at Bristol City with an ankle injury but is expected to retain his place in the side.
Rovers have won just once in their last 12 matches, failing to find the net in seven of those.
They were also heavily beaten when they travelled to Cardiff back in August, when two Jay Bothroyd goals and one apiece from Chris Burke and Craig Bellamy condemned them to a 4-0 defeat.
