Doncaster Rovers boss Darren Ferguson will welcome on loan Chelsea midfielder Jordan Houghton back into his squad for the Carabao Cup clash at Arsenal.

Houghton missed the defeat to Scunthorpe United at the weekend through illness but he is now back to full fitness.

Tommy Rowe is also available after recovering from a calf injury.

Rowe was not expected to return until the weekend trip to Plymouth Argyle but he was a surprise inclusion against Scunthorpe after declaring himself fit.

Ross Etheridge, Mathieu Baudry, Luke McCullough and Alex Kiwomya all remain sidelined through injury for Doncaster.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is expected to rotate his squad for the clash.

Midfielder Jack Wilshire may come into the starting line-up having recently returned from injury.

The gunners are without a host of players with Danny Welbeck, Mesut Ozil, Francis Coquelin and Mathieu Debuchy missing the clash.
