Ipswich will be without Jake Livermore for the clash with Donny.

The on-loan Tottenham midfielder has returned to his parent club with a groin injury and could require surgery on a double hernia.

Fellow midfielder Lee Martin could be a surprise inclusion after manager Paul Jewell cut short his season-long loan deal at Charlton.

But striker Rory Fallon will not feature after Jewell ended his loan from Plymouth early.

Midfielder Grant Leadbitter can return after serving a three-game ban, but goalkeeper Brian Murphy is set to be out for at least three months with an ankle injury so Marton Fulop will continue.

Winger Shane O'Connor also remains sidelined with a dislocated shoulder and midfielder Luke Hyam (hamstring) is out.

Matt Kilgallon is expected to return to Doncaster's starting line-up for the game and new signing Paul Keegan will be included in the squad.

Kilgallon made his Rovers debut last Saturday in the defeat at Reading but was not eligible for the FA Cup loss at Wolves in midweek, while midfielder Keegan was signed from Irish side Bohemians this week on a short-term contract until the end of the season.

Rovers will be without defender Joe Mills, on loan from Southampton, for another three weeks due to a cracked shin bone and midfielder Martin Woods will miss out after suffering a recurrence of a groin injury that has dogged him for most of the season.

Fellow midfielder Simon Gillett (knee) and defender Wayne Thomas (calf) remain sidelined, as does skipper Brian Stock due to his ongoing back problem.

Alexis Sanchez: Really Not THAT Good

The backlash has begun: Why are Barca letting him go if he's any good? We have mails on Alexis Sanchez, Luis Suarez, the World Cup and the wonder of F365...

Stop Your Sobbing And Man Up...

Oh and honey, put the kettle on. We have more World Cup mails but it's mostly an orgasmic explosion at the signing of Alexis Sanchez. Could this be Arsenal's year?
