Coppinger ready for Rovers return
Coppinger missed the midweek home defeat to Newcastle with a knock, but is expected to be available for the clash at Oakwell. Rovers manager Sean O'Driscoll has no new injury or suspension worries, but skipper Brian Stock, struggling with a back complaint, is not expected to return to contention until after Easter. O'Driscoll must decide whether to recall on-loan Arsenal midfielder Jay Emmanuel-Thomas, who started on the bench on Tuesday, or retain Mark Wilson, Martin Woods, John Oster and Dean Shiels. Billy Sharp is expected to continue alongside James Hayter up front as Doncaster look to bounce back with a victory that will keep them in touch with the top six.
