Doncaster will check on Paul Keegan ahead of the visit of the Dons.

Keegan suffered a dead leg during the home defeat to Walsall on Saturday and had to come off after 65 minutes. He will continue to be monitored ahead of Tuesday night's game.

Fellow midfielder David Syers is also a doubt. Syers missed out against the Saddlers after an ankle injury forced him off in the defeat at Bury on February 2.

Another midfielder, Martin Woods, was an unused substitute at the weekend having been out since November with a thigh injury and perhaps he will take the next step by making a return to action against the Dons.

The game at the Keepmoat Stadium will be the first between the two clubs this season.

The Dons were originally due to travel to South Yorkshire in December but freezing temperatures saw the game postponed.

The fixture at stadium:mk has also had to be re-arranged due to the Dons' ongoing involvement in the FA Cup.

MK Dons have no new problems as they look to reignite their promotion challenge.

Centre-half Gary MacKenzie, and wingers Daniel Powell and Luke Chadwick returned from injury at Oldham on Saturday and came through the game unscathed.

Defender Antony Kay and striker Ryan Lowe were suspended at Boundary Park and remain so for Tuesday night, while midfielder Stephen Gleeson (foot) and on-loan striker Patrick Bamford (hamstring) also stay unavailable due to injury.

Izale McLeod will provide Alan Smith with competition for the solitary striker position as he searches for his first goal since returning to the club.

Adam Chicksen was another player who impressed from the bench on Saturday and he will also be hopeful of a recall in defence.

The fixture at stadium:mk has also had to be re-arranged due to the Dons' ongoing involvement in the FA Cup.

Karl Robinson's side go into the game on the back of three consecutive league defeats and the run has seen the men from Milton Keynes slip into the bottom half of the League One table.

It is the first time in two years that the Dons have lost three successive league games and Robinson will be keen to see a response from his side.
