Doncaster Rovers Vs Leicester City, Tue 23 Feb 2010

Doncaster have an injury doubt over Brian Stock for the home clash against Leicester.

The midfielder managed to play 86 minutes of Saturday's 2-1 defeat at QPR despite sustaining a back problem in training on Friday, and manager Sean O'Driscoll has yet to decide whether or not to risk him.

Gareth Roberts is pushing for a more prominent role after coming off the bench for the final seven minutes of that clash to make a successful comeback from a knee problem.

But Martin Woods (groin) and Shelton Martis (hamstring) are not yet ready to return to action, although they could both make their comebacks in this weekend's visit of Crystal Palace.

Jason Shackell is still receiving treatment on a hernia problem at parent club Wolves, so Sam Hird will continue in his absence, while Adam Lockwood (foot) is still at least four weeks away from a return.

Leicester boss Nigel Pearson could opt to shuffle his pack for the trip.

Since leading scorer Matty Fryatt suffered a broken jaw against Rovers earlier this month, Pearson has named an unchanged starting line-up.

The Foxes have beaten Scunthorpe at home and drawn against Bristol City and Plymouth on their travels in those three matches.

With Fryatt still absent - and expected to remain so until the start of April - strikers Yann Kermorgant, Dany N`Guessan and Steve Howard will be hoping for recalls.

On-loan defenders Ryan McGivern and Alex Bruce and midfielders Nolberto Solano and Nicky Adams are among the other players looking to force their way into the starting XI.

Ipswich centre-half Bruce and winger Solano have yet to start a game since joining the club during the last transfer window.
