Rovers return for duo
Doncaster pair Byron Webster and Martin Woods will return to the squad for the home clash with Middlesbrough.
Webster has been recalled from his loan spell at Hereford to boost manager Sean O'Driscoll's defence while midfielder Woods has been out for just over a month with a groin problem.
Defender Mustapha Dumbuya has been ruled out for six weeks due to knee cartilage damage but on-loan Southampton defender Joe Mills is expected to return to the substitutes' bench following an ankle injury that has kept him sidelined since early November.
Centre-half Wayne Thomas and full-back James O'Connor are doubtful with respective calf injuries as Rovers look to bounce back from last week's 5-1 thrashing at Leicester with a second win in six league matches.
Middlesbrough will monitor David Wheater and Nicky Bailey ahead of the trip.
Both players have missed training sessions this week because of niggles but boss Tony Mowbray is hopeful they will be fit.
Centre-half Wheater is expected to return to the starting line-up after sitting out the home victory against Cardiff through suspension. He will probably replace Seb Hines, who made his first start of the season last weekend.
Bailey has adapted well to a new role in front of the back four. He linked up alongside Kevin Thomson against Cardiff, which allowed Boro's wide players to push further forward.
Fellow midfielder Barry Robson and striker Leroy Lita have recovered from illness and should return to the squad.
Stock stuns Boro
Brian Stock struck an injury-time winner for Doncaster as Middlesbrough`s away blues continued with a 2-1 defeat at the Keepmoat Stadium.
Stock, who has endured injury problems in recent seasons, pounced from 12 yards in the fourth minute of added time - his first goal since March 2009.
Middlesbrough, who have now taken just four points out of a possible 33 on their travels, made a flying start when Scott McDonald put them ahead inside four minutes.
Marvin Emnes set up the Australia striker, who fired into the bottom corner from 12 yards for his third goal in six games.
Doncaster levelled in the 22nd minute through in-form striker James Hayter.
Former Sheffield United forward Billy Sharp delivered the cross and Hayter made no mistake with his header from six yards - his sixth goal in his last eight.
But just when it seemed the sides would have to settle for a draw, Stock popped up with the winner to ensure Doncaster made the perfect response to last Saturday`s 5-1 defeat at Leicester and condemned Boro to a ninth away loss this term.
Boro, buoyed by their home win over high-flying Cardiff last week which lifted them out of the relegation zone, made a bright start and David Wheater - back after suspension - headed an early Gary O`Neil corner over the crossbar.
But the visitors took the lead through McDonald moments later with what was only their fifth goal in their 11th game on the road this term - having been blanked seven times so far.
Doncaster tried to respond and Mark Wilson drove a shot over the bar before Hayter did likewise from 20 yards a few minutes later.
However, Hayter was on hand to take advantage of his second opening as he drew Doncaster level from close range after good work by strike-partner Sharp.
Boro nearly began the second half as they started the first but a fine save from veteran Doncaster goalkeeper Neil Sullivan denied Leroy Lita from 18 yards.
Back came Doncaster and Sharp was thwarted by Boro goalkeeper Jason Steele before Stock shot wide from 12 yards.
Sullivan had to be alert again to tip over a Lita shot from 12 yards in the 65th minute.
Moments later the home side nearly went in front but after Joseph Mills saw his shot parried by Steele, he couldn't keep the rebound down and then John Oster cleared the bar from 18 yards as Rovers enjoyed some possession.
Doncaster created another opportunity with 13 minutes left but James Coppinger was foiled by Steele and Oster fired another effort over the bar as the hosts continued to press.
Middlesbrough weathered the storm as came close to going back in front with eight minutes left but Sullivan produced a fine save to tip Tarmo Kink's 20-yard shot around the post.
Steele saved superbly from Dean Shiels in injury time but moments later Stock came up with the winner.
