Stock: Back in training

Stock: Back in training

Doncaster boss Sean O'Driscoll could be boosted by the return of four players for the visit of Yorkshire rivals Leeds.

Rovers have been crippled by injury so far this term and lie bottom of the Championship after four straight defeats.

However, Brian Stock, Shelton Martis, James Hayter and James O'Connor have all returned to training and may come into contention to face Simon Grayson's men.

Several other men remained sidelined through injury, however, as Billy Sharp, Ryan Mason, James Chambers, Martin Woods and Adam Lockwood all continue to miss out.

And on-loan duo Reece Brown and Milan Lalkovic - on loan from Manchester United and Chelsea respectively - are not eligible to play.

Leeds midfielder Michael Brown is not expected to be rushed back into the squad at Doncaster.

Brown missed Sunday's draw at West Ham due to a calf strain and is likely to be missing again, but Grayson has no new injury or suspension worries and may want to keep the same side following their encouraging display at Upton Park.

Skipper Jonny Howson returned from suspension in place of Brown on Sunday, while Max Gradel went straight back into the side in place of Ramon Nunez, who should start on the substitutes' bench again.

Strikers Luciano Becchio (hamstring), Davide Somma (knee) and Billy Paynter (thigh) remain sidelined, so Andy Keogh and Ross McCormack are likely to resume their partnership up front.

Leeds exited the competition at the second round stage last season, losing 2-1 at home to Leicester.
