Doncaster defender James O'Connor could make a surprise return against Preston following a two-month injury lay-off.

O'Connor has been sidelined since mid-February due to a broken bone in his foot and only recently returned to full training but manager Sean O'Driscoll will make a late decision on whether to include him in the squad.

O'Driscoll will be without fellow defender Joseph Mills though. He was withdrawn in Saturday's 3-1 home defeat to Cardiff and replaced by Matt Kilgallon after sustaining a hamstring injury.

Leading goalscorer Billy Sharp (groin), midfielder Martin Woods (both groin), plus defenders James Chambers and Adam Lockwood (both knee) remain long-term absentees.

Rovers, chasing their first win in seven league games - they have lost their last three - have slipped to 20th place in the table in recent weeks, seven points above the relegation zone.

Iain Turner and Chris Brown are set to give Preston boss Phil Brown a double boost ahead of the trip to Doncaster.

Everton goalkeeper Turner, who initially arrived at Deepdale in February, has extended his emergency loan until the end of the season.

The Scot has missed just one fixture through injury since his arrival and should line up between the posts at the Keepmoat Stadium.

Striker Brown is set to come back into contention after injury but Conor McLaughlin is out for the season with a long-term ankle injury and David Gray is still on crutches after taking a knock to his shin at Norwich last month.

Defenders Leon Cort and Sean St Ledger also look set to remain sidelined.
