Doncaster Rovers will have to do without their captain, Brian Stock for their home game with Crystal Palace on Saturday.
Stock missed the midweek defeat by Leicester City and could be set to miss the rest of the season due to the reoccurrence of the back injury that dogged him for much of last season.
Rovers will also be without fellow midfielder Martin Woods who is still not back from a groin injury.
They will also be missing a number of defenders with Shelton Martis, Adam Lockwood, Jason Shackell and Byron Webster all still on the sidelines.
Palace welcome back a trio of players who were all cup tied in midweek, Stern John, Lee Hills and Kieron Cadagon will all go back into the squad.
Long term injured Paddy McCartney is back in training but still some way short of a return to the first team.
