Doncaster v Hull preview

Doncaster boss Dean Saunders has no new injury worries or suspensions to consider following Saturday’s 1-0 win over Crystal Palace.
He is expected to name an unchanged side after ending the club’s 19-game winless run in his first game in charge at the Keepmoat.
Influential striker Billy Sharp gave his new manager a timely boost by returning from ankle ligament damage in that game to play the final 33 minutes.
He should keep his place on the substitutes’ bench providing he suffers no reaction in training.
On-loan Chelsea striker Milan Lalkovic will again have to settle for a place on the bench.
Chris Brown, James Chambers, Martin Woods and Adam Lockwood remain on the sidelines.
Hull midfielder Robert Koren could be a surprise inclusion in manager Nigel Pearson’s squad.
The Slovenia international sustained a hamstring injury during Saturday’s draw at Bristol City and was replaced by Corry Evans in the 71st minute.
City’s head of medical services Chris Burton told the club’s official website: “The early signs were that the hamstring was very sore, but it has settled down a lot over the weekend.
“He’s been doing a form of training and things are looking good. We’ve just got to make sure there’s no reaction and we’re hoping he’ll be involved in the team.”
But Pearson could be without fellow midfielder Paul McKenna, who is struggling with a dead-leg picked up in Saturday’s draw.
Pearson has no other new injury or suspension concerns, but skipper Andy Dawson (knee), defender Paul McShane (calf) and winger Martin Pusic (hamstring) all remain sidelined.
