Doncaster midfielder Simon Gillett could be ruled out for several weeks after sustaining a knee injury in the home defeat by Derby.

Gillett was forced out of the action in the 39th minute and will undergo a scan to determine the full extent of medial knee ligament damage.

Rovers manager Sean O'Driscoll told the club's official website: "It looks like it's going to be weeks rather than days at the minute. We won't really know until Thursday. He's on crutches, so he's going to struggle a little bit."

Also in the wars are defender Adam Lockwood, who has a suspected broken toe, striker James Hayter and midfielder Martin Woods.

O'Driscoll added: "Adam had an injection before the game and it allowed us to see - if we needed him - whether we could get him on the pitch. He felt it was okay. It's a bit sore now. I don't think he would have got through the game.

"James Hayter had an ankle injury which was 50/50 and if he had a knock on it, he would have missed more than just the game and Martin Woods was the same with his groin. He was one of those who got through the game on Saturday with painkillers."
