Doncaster Rovers have been boosted by a number of players returning to full fitness in recent weeks but they still have a large number of players on the sidelines.
Martin Woods, John Oster, Tommy Spurr and Shelton Martis have all returned since the turn of the year but they still have a dozen players sidelined.
Goalkeeper Neil Sullivan has undergone surgery on his broken thumb and he is expected to be out until mid-February.
Defender James Chambers is finally back in training after his long term injury although he is still way off a return to first team action.
George Friend is not expected to be back until the final month of the season after suffering medial ligament damage to his knee.
Pascal Chimbonda is still struggling with a hip injury that has seen him make just one brief appearance against Watford over the festive period since the start of November.
Young defender Oscar Radford has returned from his loan spell at Matlock Town and he is also suffering with a similar injury to Chimbonda.
Rovers are yet to see defender Rachid Bouhenna in action this season since signing in the summer. The defender is back in training and two or three weeks away from full fitness following injury.
Midfielder Paul Keegan is still suffering with the thigh strain that has seen him make just two substitute appearances so far this season. Keegan is set to have blood tests in a bid to work out the cause of the problem.
Herold Goulon could be included in the squad for this weekend`s game with Bristol City after recovering from a hamstring injury.
New loan signings Damien Plessis, Habib Bamogo and Mamadou Bagayoko are all short of match fitness with Bamogo also suffering from a hamstring strain.
