Reading winger Jimmy Kebe could return for Reading after missing last weekend's 4-0 win at Burnley with a knee injury.

Midfielder Jem Karacan is also fit despite picking up a knock at Turf Moor and the Turkey Under-21 international will keep his place.

Brynjar Gunnarsson will again miss out through a hamstring injury but Jay Tabb is available for selection after recovering from a foot injury.

Tabb has spent most of his Royals career at full-back or defensive midfield but played behind the striker last weekend and impressed.

Youngster Michail Antonio will again be on the bench after he came on to score his first goal for the club last week.

Doncaster will definitely be without striker Billy Sharp, while midfielder Martin Woods is doubtful.

Sharp tore his hamstring in last week's 2-0 home win over his former club Sheffield United and will be out for up to six weeks.

Woods is struggling with a recurrence of a groin strain that forced him out of the action late in the same match.

But Sean O'Driscoll could be boosted by the return of defensive pair James Chambers and Wayne Thomas, who have both been missing in recent weeks due to knee injuries.

Centre-half Adam Lockwood came through a late substitute appearance against the Blades last week unscathed, but midfielder Simon Gillett and defender George Friend are still nursing knee injuries.
