Doncaster v Rochdale preview

Date published: Friday 10th April 2015 10:45

Nathan Tyson and James Coppinger are doubts for Doncaster as they prepare to host fellow play-off hopefuls Rochdale.

Forward Tyson and midfielder Coppinger both had to be substituted against Sheffield United on Tuesday night due to knee injuries and the pair will be assessed ahead of the weekend.

A knee problem saw Luke McCullough miss out at Bramall Lane but the defender is not expected to be out for much longer.

Midfielder Paul Keegan (knee) remain sidelines for Rovers, who really must defeat Dale if they are to keep their hopes of a top-six finish alive.

Rochdale midfielders Jamie Allen and Matty Lund could be surprise inclusions in the squad.

Allen sustained a nasty head wound in the recent defeat to Oldham, while Lund has been sidelined since December due to a dislocated shoulder. Both players recently rejoined the squad for training.

Midfielder Stephen Dawson is not expected to feature again this season after having knee surgery, but defenders Ollie Lancashire (ankle) and Scott Tanser (calf), plus striker Joe Bunney (groin) are close to recalls.

Boss Keith Hill has no new injury or suspension worries as his side bid to keep their play-off hopes alive.
