Sharp worry for Doncaster Rovers
Published : 04 Mar 2011 11:00:05
Doncaster's leading goalscorer Billy Sharp is an injury concern for manager Sean O'Driscoll ahead of the Yorkshire derby at Leeds.
Sharp, who took his tally for the season to 15 in 28 appearances with a brace in the midweek win at Derby, has recently returned from a groin injury which forced him to miss three games and will be monitored.
O'Driscoll could also be without on-loan Blackpool striker Jason Euell due to a knee injury which kept him out on Tuesday night.
But another forward, James Hayter, is expected to make a timely return to the squad being after sidelined since early February with a calf injury.
Attacking midfielder James Coppinger and Ryan Mason could also give O'Driscoll's squad a boost by returning to contention in time for the clash at Elland Road.
Coppinger has been sidelined for the last four games due to a calf problem and midfielder Mason has missed the last five with a leg injury.
Defenders James Chambers (hamstring), James O'Connor (foot) and Mustapha Dumbuya (knee) are still out as O'Driscoll's side, 11 points clear of the relegation zone, chase back-to-back wins for the first time this season.
