Blackpool have no new problems ahead of the visit of Doncaster.

Algeria international Hameur Bouazza made his first appearance since the end of February following a groin injury as a second-half substitute in the 4-2 win over Scunthorpe.

On-loan Leicester striker DJ Campbell (thigh) and midfielder David Vaughan (ankle) also returned from injury at Glanford Park and all three players should be involved again.

Defender Rob Edwards, midfielder Barry Bannan and striker Jason Euell will be hoping for recalls.

Left-back Stephen Crainey sustained a knee injury against Plymouth at the end of last month and may not play again this season.

Forward Brett Ormerod has had surgery on a fractured hand and may also have played his last game of the campaign, while defender Neal Eardley (hamstring) is still sidelined.

Doncaster manager Sean O'Driscoll has received a blow with the news that Billy Sharp could miss the rest of the season with a torn thigh muscle.

Sharp, who has proved a huge hit at the Keepmoat Stadium on a season-long loan from Sheffield United, missed Saturday's 2-1 home defeat to Plymouth and has returned to Bramall Lane.

O'Driscoll said: "It's a nasty one, a deep one. I'd say he'll be out for two or three weeks at least. He's not our player, so we won't be pushing him."

Dean Shiels returned to the starting line-up on Saturday and partnered James Hayter up front.

O'Driscoll is not expected to make many changes despite his side's disappointing display against lowly Plymouth.

On-loan midfielder Jordon Mutch and fit-again central defender Adam Lockwood (metatarsal) are both hoping to feature.
