Match Preview

Edwards in contention for Canaries Norwich will have new signing Rob Edwards available for the visit of out-of-sorts Doncaster. Defender Edwards has joined the club on loan until the end of May from Blackpool and will provide much-needed cover at centre-half. Leon Barnett has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a hamstring injury and Edwards could be on the bench at Carrow Road - with Elliott Ward and Zak Whitbread continuing in the back four. Striker Chris Martin missed the 2-2 draw with Leeds on Saturday with a hamstring injury and is set to be out again so Aaron Wilbraham could keep his place alongside captain Grant Holt. Left-winger Simon Lappin will also be out for around a fortnight after having an appendectomy operation on Saturday. Doncaster midfielders James Coppinger and Ryan Burge are the latest players to succumb to injury at the Keepmoat Stadium. Coppinger sustained a calf strain during the warm-up prior to Saturday's 3-0 defeat at Swansea, while Burge was withdrawn after hurting his ankle during training. Manager Sean O'Driscoll was forced to draft in Blackpool striker Jason Euell and Leicester midfielder Franck Moussa on emergency loans last week and both made their debuts at Swansea, where Doncaster conceded their ninth league goal in five days. Leading scorer Billy Sharp (groin), fellow striker James Hayter (calf), midfielder Ryan Mason (leg) and defender James Chambers (hamstring) are all sidelined. Other absentees include defenders James O'Connor (foot), Shelton Martis (ankle) and Mustapha Dumbuya (knee) and midfielders Brian Stock (back), Simon Gillett (knee) and Martin Woods (groin).

Match Report

Drury gaffe gifts Rovers a point Adam Drury's own goal cost Norwich two precious points in their pursuit of automatic promotion as depleted Doncaster secured an unlikely 1-1 draw at Carrow Road. Paul Lambert's side started slowly, but stole into a first-half lead through leading goalscorer Grant Holt. However, Canaries defender Drury headed John Oster's second-half corner into his own net and Rovers held on to end a run of four straight defeats. Rovers chairman John Ryan had wanted the game called off because of his side's crippling injury list and with just one win in their previous nine league matches, his concerns were understandable. But the visitors took the game to Norwich in the first half and after withstanding a storm in the second half they struck back for a deserved point. Henri Lansbury, on loan from Arsenal and looking to score in his third straight game, tested Doncaster goalkeeper Neil Sullivan with an early volley. But midfielder Frank Moussa, Doncaster's new loan signing, had a goalbound shot blocked by Norwich defender Elliott Ward and was the game's outstanding player for the first half an hour. Doncaster, without 11 first-team players, were the better side during this period, but Norwich took a 31st-minute lead against the run of play with only their second real effort on goal. Canaries defender Drury broke free down the left and when he sent the ball skidding low across the six-yard box, Holt showed sound technique to slam the ball home first time, high into the roof of the net for his 15th goal of the season. Norwich looked more assured after their breakthrough and visiting defender Wayne Thomas did well to block Lansbury's 20-yard effort, while Holt steered a gilt-edged chance from another dangerous ball in from Drury over the crossbar just before half-time. Aaron Wilbraham fired a 20-yard shot just wide for Norwich after the restart, but Moussa again troubled the home defence, first drilling in a thumping drive that Norwich goalkeeper John Ruddy held and then weaving his way into the penalty area before being bundled off the ball. Holt volleyed wide following Lansbury's cross just before the hour-mark as Norwich looked to build on their lead and then Wilbraham twice went close with headers. The first, from Russell Martin's cross, was brilliantly parried by Sullivan and the second, from David Fox's free-kick flew wide. Andrew Crofts then dragged his shot wide, but just as Norwich appeared favourites to double their lead, Doncaster hit back against the run of play. Rovers midfielder Oster sent over an inswinging corner and Drury inadvertently headed the ball into the opposite corner of the net in the 83rd minute. Moussa then flashed a volley wide for the visitors, while Norwich responded when Zak Whitbread's header was blocked by Rovers defender Wayne Thomas in the closing stages.
