Rovers' injury crisis easing

Doncaster duo James Hayter and James Coppinger could both return to the starting line-up against Coventry.Striker Hayter had been sidelined since early February with a calf injury before stepping off the bench on Saturday, while attacking midfielder Coppinger had missed the previous four games due to a similar problem before he too appeared as a second-half substitute at Leeds.Rovers boss Sean O'Driscoll must decide whether to keep faith with young goalkeeper Gary Woods or start with loan signing Ben Alnwick, who was on the bench at Elland Road.First-choice keeper Neil Sullivan remains sidelined with a shin injury.The veteran has had an injection to aid his recovery, but will miss five days' training before he can contemplate a return.O'Driscoll has no new injury or suspension problems, but defenders James Chambers (hamstring), James O'Connor (foot) and Mustapha Dumbuya (knee) are still out.
