Doncaster remain crippled by injury as they prepare to host Forest.

Rovers boss Sean O'Driscoll will choose from the same squad that slumped to a 1-0 home defeat at the hands of West Ham on Saturday.

However, O'Driscoll has almost a full team on the sidelines as his men bid to collect their first points of the season.

On-loan Tottenham midfielder Ryan Mason faces several weeks out having been carried off with ankle ligament damage in last Tuesday's 3-0 Carling Cup first-round victory over Tranmere.

It came just three days after Rovers saw strikers Billy Sharp (ankle) and James Hayter (knee) leave the Amex Stadium pitch on stretchers in the opening-day 2-1 defeat at Brighton.

Already out injured are James O'Connor, James Chambers, Martin Woods, Brian Stock, Adam Lockwood, Shelton Martis and Mark Wilson.

Strikers Matt Derbyshire and Ishmael Miller could be in line for their Nottingham Forest debuts.

Derbyshire was not considered against Millwall on Saturday following his arrival from Greek club Olympiakos last week. He stayed behind in Nottingham to train as the Reds were beaten 2-0 at the Den.

Miller is available after completing his £1.2million move from West Brom on Monday.

With Forest yet to score a Championship goal this season, at least one of the new signings is expected to start in South Yorkshire.

Paul Anderson is expected to remain absent after he missed the Millwall defeat with a groin problem.

Fellow midfielder Radoslaw Majewski will be hoping to make his first league start of the season following substitute appearances against Barnsley and Millwall.
