Ipswich will be without Jake Livermore for the clash with Doncaster.
The on-loan Tottenham midfielder has returned to his parent club with a groin injury and could require surgery on a double hernia.
Fellow midfielder Lee Martin could be a surprise inclusion after manager Paul Jewell cut short his season-long loan deal at Charlton.
But striker Rory Fallon will not feature after Jewell ended his loan from Plymouth early.
Midfielder Grant Leadbitter can return after serving a three-game ban, but goalkeeper Brian Murphy is set to be out for at least three months with an ankle injury so Marton Fulop will continue.
Winger Shane O'Connor also remains sidelined with a dislocated shoulder and midfielder Luke Hyam (hamstring) is out.
