Doncaster skipper Brian Stock could return to the squad.

Rovers, however, will be without on-loan central defender Matt Kilgallon, who has returned to parent club Sunderland for treatment on the hamstring injury that forced him out of Saturday's derby defeat to Barnsley.

Midfielder Stock, sidelined with a calf injury sustained against Scunthorpe on New Year's Day, is hoping to feature at some stage.

Rovers could include new loan signing Ryan Burge in their squad. The 23-year-old midfielder has signed a permanent deal until the end of the season from Spanish lower league side Jerez Industrial CF, subject to international clearance.

Manager Sean O'Driscoll must choose between Sam Hird and Dennis Souza to play alongside Adam Lockwood at the heart of defence in Kilgallon's absence.

Defender Joseph Mills (shin bone), centre-half Wayne Thomas (calf) and midfielder Simon Gillett (knee) are still out.

Burnley boss Eddie Howe could hand a debut to new signing Charlie Austin when his side make the trip to Doncaster.

Howe swooped to capture the 21-year-old striker from Swindon for an undisclosed fee last week but he was ineligible for Saturday's FA Cup third-round win over Burton.

Northern Ireland striker Martin Paterson has been nursing a thigh injury in recent weeks, but came off the bench to score the Clarets' final goal in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Brewers.

Howe made no changes to the side which beat Portsmouth at Fratton Park last week but may be tempted to pitch Austin straight into his starting line-up.

Midfielder Chris McCann (knee) remains a long-term absentee but the Clarets have no other major concerns.
