Doncaster Rovers have a number of defensive worries ahead of tonight`s clash with Derby County at the Keepmoat.

Both George Friend and James O`Connor were forced off through injury on Saturday, whilst fellow defender Adam Lockwood suffered a toe injury.

Shelton Martis as missed the last two games through injury and Wayne Thomas and James Chambers are still out with long term injuries leaving Rovers very short of numbers at the back.

Derby will be without regular goalkeeper Stephen Bywater with a shoulder injury with England under 21 keeper Frank Fielding who is on loan from Blackburn Rovers expected to play.

Former Rovers midfielder Paul Green is hoping to shake off a hamstring injury.

Gareth Roberts who left Rovers in the summer is expected to start against his former club in his first return to the Keepmoat.
