Healy: Set for debut

Healy: Set for debut

Doncaster's new loan signing David Healy is expected to go straight into the starting line-up against the Lions.

Healy arrived in time from Sunderland for an initial month and Rovers hope the 31-year-old can prove to be the ideal replacement for Billy Sharp, currently out with a torn hamstring.

Rovers manager Sean O'Driscoll could also be boosted by the return of fit-again Wayne Thomas following a long-term knee injury, but the best the central defender can hope for is a place on the substitutes' bench due to lack of match fitness.

Midfielder Simon Gillett and defender George Friend remain sidelined due to knee injuries and Martin Woods is still struggling with a recurrence of his groin strain, while it has been confirmed defender Adam Lockwood has fractured his toe.

Strike duo Kevin Lisbie and Neil Harris will return to the Lions squad.

Lisbie was ineligible to face Ipswich last weekend as he is on loan from Portman Road and Lions stalwart Harris has resumed training following an ankle injury.

But Huddersfield loanee Theo Robinson will be checked over after suffering a knee injury in the defeat by the Tractor Boys and fellow striker Shaun Batt remains a long-term absentee with a knee injury.

Defender Tamika Mkandawire failed a late fitness test ahead of the trip to Suffolk but is expected to be available.

Boss Kenny Jackett this week allowed winger Lewis Grabban to extend his loan spell at Brentford for another two months.
