Barnsley manager Mark Robins could make changes.

Robins' side appeared laboured as they lost 1-0 against Watford on Saturday in what was a typical end-of-season encounter between two teams with little to play for.

A clash with Rovers will provide much of the same for Robins' men and the manager looks set to freshen things up with several players vying for recalls.

Reuben Noble-Lazarus looked lively after coming off the bench against the Hornets and is pushing for a start, as is defender Bobby Hassell.

Defender Luke Potter remains sidelined with a knee problem that has kept him out since November and Alastair Taylor is also out with an unspecified injury.

Doncaster look set to be without Mustapha Dumbuya.

The defender made his first start since the beginning of April in the goalless draw against Crystal Palace on Good Friday, but was withdrawn in the final 15 minutes after suffering a recurrence of his hamstring injury.

Dumbuya is rated as "touch and go" by manager Sean O'Driscoll so Shelton Martis, who came on as Dumbuya's replacement at the Keepmoat, is on standby to start.

Striker Billy Sharp is in a race to be fit before the end of the season following hernia surgery, but centre-half Adam Lockwood is making good progress after a knee operation.

But fellow defender James Chambers (knee) and midfield duo Martin Woods (hip) and Paul Keegan (knee) are all unlikely to feature again this term.

And we left lots of Suarez/Costa mails unopened. What we do have is a video of some rotten Suarez tackles and views on the future of football, Spurs, Liverpool and...

But Biting Doesn't Hurt Like Stamping...

There are Liverpool fans arguing that Luis Suarez is nowhere near Diego Costa's sh*t-house league but we have plenty of love for the agitator too. Oh and Spurs...
