Rovers boss Tony Mowbray has made one change to the side which defeated Peterborough United last time out, with Craig Conway returning to the XI in place of Marcus Antonsson at Doncaster Rovers.

Antonsson drops to the bench and is available if required, whilst other attacking options joining him as substitutes include Dominic Samuel, Peter Whittingham and Jack Payne.

Midfielder Richie Smallwood makes his 50th appearance in Rovers colours as the ex-Rotherham United man returns to Yorkshire.

Opponents Doncaster make three changes to the side that lost at home to Oxford United on Saturday, with Darren Ferguson opting to replace Luke McCullough, Rodney Kongolo and Alfie May, who all drop to the bench.

Coming in for the trio are Jordan Houghton, Alfie Beestin and the experienced James Coppinger, who captains the hosts.

To put it simply, if Rovers win, promotion is secured.

Kick-off is at 7.45pm.

Doncaster: Marosi, Alcock, Baudry, Butler, Mason, Marquis, Whiteman, Houghton, Blair, Beestin, Coppinger (c).

Substitutes: Lawlor, McCullough, Kongolo, Williams, Boyle, Anderson, May.

Rovers: Raya, Bennett, Lenihan, Mulgrew (c), Williams, Evans, Smallwood, Armstrong, Dack, Conway, Graham.

Substitutes: Leutwiler, Samuel, Whittingham, Bell, Payne, Antonsson, Downing.
