Doncaster Rovers managers Sean O`Driscoll as the rarity of no fresh injury worries after the weekend draw with Watford for the trip to Derby County.

O`Driscoll was buoyed by the return to the starting line up of leading goalscorer Billy Sharp on Saturday whilst Simon Gillett returned on the bench from his long-term injury.

Rovers still had twelve players missing through injury at the weekend with Neil Sullivan, Adam Lockwood, Shelton Martis, James Chambers, James O`Connor, Mustapha Dumbuya, Martin Woods, James Coppinger, Ryan Mason, Ryan Burge, James Hayter and Steve Brooker all on the sidelines.

Jamie Ward is likely to return for Derby after he was ineligible to play against his parent club Sheffield United at the weekend.

Shaun Barker will continue to play through the pain barrier, as he requires knee surgery at the end of the season.

Goalkeeper Frank Fielding will play his first home game since returning on loan last week from Blackburn, with fellow keepers Stephen Bywater and Saul Deeney on the sidelines.

Former Doncaster Rovers defender Gareth Roberts will be missing for the hosts with a shin injury and James Bailey is also out with a groin injury.
