Millwall striker Steve Morison is out of the game.

The Lions' 13-goal top scorer, who is poised to sign a new contract at The Den, suffered a muscle strain during the 2-1 defeat at Norwich on Tuesday night and will be sidelined for a fortnight.

Theo Robinson replaced Morison at Carrow Road and got on the scoresheet, so he is likely to start against Rovers.

Skipper Paul Robinson has resumed training following three weeks out with a hamstring injury and could return in defence.

Tony Craig is also close to fitness after a back problem but fellow defender Darren Ward and striker Josh McQuoid (both ankle) are still missing, along with suspended centre-half Jens Berthel Askou.

Doncaster will be without injured striker James Hayter.

Hayter sustained an Achilles injury in the midweek win over Burnley and misses out, while Rovers could also be without attacking midfielder James Coppinger, who is doubtful after hurting his ankle in the same match.

Skipper Brian Stock, though, should start again. He suffered no reaction to a calf injury following his return against Burnley and midfielder Ryan Burge, who signed from Spanish lower league side Jerez Industrial CF this week, will be included in the squad.

Goalkeeper Neil Sullivan faces a late fitness test due to a shin problem, so Gary Woods is on stand-by after making his first appearance on Tuesday night.

Central defenders Adam Lockwood (ankle), Matt Kilgallon (hamstring) and Wayne Thomas (calf), full-back Joseph Mills (shin) and midfielders Mark Wilson and Simon Gillett (knee) all remain sidelined.
