Doncaster manager Sean O'Driscoll has hinted midfielder Martin Woods may require surgery to resolve an on-going groin problem.

Woods has been a virtual ever-present for Rovers this season, but O'Driscoll was forced to replace him with Simon Gillett at half-time during the midweek win over Sheffield Wenesday.

"Martin's groin tightened up again and was sore. The same happened against Palace at Selhurst Park last week and he just felt he couldn't continue after half-time," O'Driscoll said. "We'll have to continue looking at that. He's had a couple of injections to try and solve it, but we may need to look at it further."

Meanwhile, O'Driscoll has been boosted this week by the return to training of skipper Brian Stock, who has been out since September following ankle surgery.
