    Match Preview

    As you were for Rovers Doncaster have no new problems ahead of the visit of Middlesbrough. Rovers boss Paul Dickov, who does not expect to make any more signings before the transfer deadline on Friday night, is likely to name an unchanged starting line-up following the 3-0 home win over Charlton in midweek. Gabriel Tamas and Abdoulaye Meite both started in defence against the Addicks while fellow January arrival Billy Sharp partnered Chris Brown, who recovered from a knock to play, in attack. Harry Forrester has missed the last two matches with injury and looks set to remain on the sidelines while Rob Jones has resumed training after three months out with a neck problem and the defender is nearing a return to first-team contention. Middlesbrough defender Rhys Williams will miss out as he prepares to undergo ankle surgery. The 25-year-old Australia international suffered a suspected ruptured Achilles tendon during Tuesday night's 0-0 home draw with Wigan and is due to visit a specialist in London this week. As a result, the luckless Williams, who missed the 2010 World Cup finals in South Africa through injury, is likely to have to sit out the rest of the season and that would end his hopes of making his country's trip to Brazil this summer. Central defender Jonathan Woodgate was unavailable for the Wigan game with a thigh problem and is likely to be absent once again.
