Millwall manager Kenny Jackett looks set to put faith in his new loan arrivals.

Defensive duo Nathan Baker and Shane Lowry joined from Aston Villa until the new year and impressed in the 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace on Saturday, meaning they are likely to retain their places.

Striker Josh McQuoid recently recovered from a thigh injury but was an unused substitute at Selhurst Park. He will be pushing for a recall to the starting XI.

Steve Mildenhall will continue to deputise in goal for the injured David Forde, who faces another month on the sidelines with a thigh problem.

The versatile Tamika Mkandawire will miss out once more with a knee injury.

Jackett's side have failed to win in their last three games and sit just one place above the Championship relegation zone.

El-Hadji Diouf is an injury doubt for Doncaster.

Diouf, who took the Rovers armband for Saturday's goalless draw with Watford in the absence of regular captain George Friend, has had a scan on a hamstring problem and will be assessed before kick-off.

Friend (foot) remains sidelined at the head of a lengthy injury list for boss Dean Saunders to contend with.

Richard Naylor (broken finger), Pascal Chimbonda (hip) and Shelton Martis (groin) are still weeks away from action, while Martin Woods (groin), Chris Brown and James Chambers (both knee) remain long-term absentees.

James Coppinger trained on Monday following a foot injury and will be in contention, while Billy Sharp is expected to continue in attack after suffering no reaction to his groin complaint during the Watford game.

Adam Lockwood serves the second game of his three-match suspension for a straight red card against Barnsley. James Husband, 17, will travel with the Doncaster squad a week after penning his first a professional contract.
