Match Preview
Wright's time to shine for Doncaster

Defender Joe Wright will come into the Doncaster team after Mathieu Baudry was ruled out for the rest of the season.

Baudry had Achilles surgery this week so Wright will play against Exeter on Saturday and Hartlepool next weekend.

Andy Williams is expected to be available after recovering from injury while midfielder Matty Blair returns from suspension.

Doncaster have gone off the boil since securing promotion but could clinch the title this weekend if they win and Plymouth fail to beat Crewe.

Play-off chasing Exeter hope to have midfield veteran Matt Oakley available for the final two games of the season.

Oakley has missed the last two matches with a hip flexor injury and the 39-year-old's experience could prove vital as Exeter seek to cement a top-seven spot.

Craig Woodman is nearing a return after breaking his arm in March, but the trip to south Yorkshire will probably be too soon for the left-back.

Welsh teenager Ethan Ampadu could feature again after impressing last weekend, while Reuben Reid and Liam McAlinden - who both scored late on in the 3-1 win over Morecambe after coming on as substitutes - are pushing for starting places.
