Doncaster v C Palace preview

Doncaster defender Mustapha Dumbuya is hoping to return.
Dumbuya has missed the last two games due to a calf strain but is expected to be added to Sean O’Driscoll’s squad for the visit of Palace, who are two points behind fifth-bottom Doncaster in the table.
O’Driscoll is unlikely to make too many changes to the side beaten 3-1 at Hull last week. He has no new injury or suspension problems but there are no others ready to return.
Striker Billy Sharp is in a race to be fit before the end of the season following hernia surgery and centre-half Adam Lockwood is making good progress after a knee operation.
But fellow defender James Chambers (knee) and midfield pair Martin Woods (hip) and Paul Keegan (knee) are all unlikely to feature again this season.
Rovers are chasing their first win in nine league matches.
James Vaughan is expected to be fit for Palace.
The on-loan Everton striker limped off at the end of last Saturday’s 2-1 defeat by relegation rivals Scunthorpe and underwent a scan amid fears his season could be over.
But his ankle injury is not serious – and the broken bone in his hand he suffered when he punched the dressing-room wall in frustration will not keep him out either.
Winger Sean Scannell starts a three-game ban after his red card against Scunthorpe but utility man David Wright could return after a calf injury.
Midfielder Alex Marrow is also close to fitness after an ankle injury but he is more likely to return against Leeds on Monday.
