Doncaster look set to benefit from the return of three players.

James Chambers has recovered from a hamstring injury and could line up against his old club at the Keepmoat Stadium.

Fellow defender James O'Connor is also back in contention following his return from a fractured metatarsal.

Brian Stock limped off during last weekend's 1-0 defeat at Bristol City with an ankle injury but is expected to retain his place in the side.

Rovers have won just once in their last 12 matches, failing to find the net in seven of those.

They were also heavily beaten when they travelled to Cardiff back in August, when two Jay Bothroyd goals and one apiece from Chris Burke and Craig Bellamy condemned them to a 4-0 defeat.

Michael Chopra remains out for Cardiff although the Bluebirds have been handed a major boost over the striker's fitness.

Chopra was expected to miss the remainder of the season due a hamstring tear sustained in mid-March but scans have confirmed the injury is healing quicker than expected.

The 11-goal forward is now running and set to force his way back into action sooner rather than later, although the Keepmoat Stadium clash comes too soon.

Goalkeeper Tom Heaton will be assessed after he suffered a groin strain upon his return from five weeks out with a groin injury in last Saturday's 4-1 win over Derby.

City have been keen to stress the injury is not a recurrence of the previous problem but Heaton will be monitored ahead of Saturday, with loanees Stephen Bywater and Jason Brown competing to step in.

Centre-back Mark Hudson (knee) and goalkeeper David Marshall (elbow) remain long-term absentees.
